Students at SLAIS come from all over Canada as well as other countries around the world. Some students come to SLAIS right after completing an undergraduate degree, some after other advanced degrees, and still others enter SLAIS after pursuing another career for a number of years. This wealth of experience and background provides an always interesting and eclectic environment both both students and faculty.
