Academic Information

Graduate Students Office

The grad studies office is there to answer any questions you might have about being a music graduate student.  Their website is full of useful information.  Most useful to you are the friendly and supportive staff located on the 7th floor of the New Music Building.   If you can’t find the information you need, you can e-mail them.  The director is Prof. Eleanor Stubley, and Helene Drouin and Michel Cayer are student affairs coordinators.


There are many opportunities for funding your education.  The most extensive effort to get you funded is led by the grad studies office in the fall. Especially useful are their readings of grant proposals. Our department has produced Vanier Scholars.  You can find general information here.

If you are an international student, you may be able to get an “International Fee Exemption” if you satisfy one of the eight criteria.  You probably won’t but you can check anyways.  For information on the various CSQ category types, see this post on


CIRMMT is the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology.  They do research related to music technology, acoustics, cognition, movement, and interaction to name a few.  They host lectures, workshops, and concerts involving music technology in their facilities, located on the 8th floor of the New Music Building.  You can learn about upcoming events, and how to get involved on their website.
