During the months of September and October, FRI students have opportunities to learn about the areas of scientific research represented by our Research Streams, to meet some of the students in those streams, and to submit a Stream Sort form ranking their top five preferred research streams.

Fill out a Stream Sort form

The Stream Sort Form will be available in October, exact dates TBD (after the publication of the course schedule on-line). Students will have the opportunity to submit, online, their top 5 research stream choices, and a brief statement explaining their choice. The late Stream Sort form will open October 27th.

October 27-29th, 2018

Get Sorted

Students are sorted into Research Streams based on student preference and research stream availability. We do our best to give students one of their top choices.

Early November

Get a Stream Assignment

Students who submitted a stream sort form by the deadline will be notified of their Stream assignments and the unique number of the course(s) associated with that Stream by November 5th. Please be patient as it takes time to notify all students.

If you have a course conflict with the stream you've been placed in, and you feel very strongly that you need to change streams, the Stream Switch form will be available. It may not be possible to accommodate all requests, but we will do our best.  Keep in mind that students will be sorted up until the first class day in January.  

Early November

Register for your Stream

Students register themselves for the stream they've been placed in, following the instructions in the stream assignment email.
