Laidlaw schedule

Students who begin the Laidlaw Program in the 2nd year of their Bachelor’s studies are required to complete the entire program, including activities taking place after the completion of their Bachelor’s degree.

Please note that it is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that the Laidlaw Program does not overlap with their academic curriculum, including compulsory inter-semester internships or courses that they may undertake.
