Brandon University's Fall Term will see instruction that is mostly delivered online, as they continue to take precautions to ensure the health and safety of our whole community.

While Covid-19 trends in Manitoba look promising, BU is taking a cautious and prudent approach that is in line with provincial phased reopening plans. The University will limit in-person instruction to where it is necessary, and avoid potential mid-term disruption from any resurgence of infection or second wave of cases.

Planning now for a mostly online Fall Term gives certainty to students, faculty and staff, and allows for the best possible learning experience to be developed. An online term also brings parity to students who cannot travel to Brandon, for those with continuing responsibilities at home, and for those with health considerations.

A limited number of classes, labs, studios, or practicums may need to be held in-person, with exceptions to be posted in the online registration guide. 

More information about the fall semester can be found on the University's website below.
