What is a Graduate Student?

A graduate student is any part-time or full-time student registered in any graduate program at York University.  A graduate student may or may not have a funding package which includes a GAship, RAship or TAship.  Nonetheless, all of our workshops, courses and events are open and free for all graduate students, although some have prerequisites.
