The single highest priority of the Enrichment Mini-Courses Program (EMCP) Committee that includes the University of Ottawa, Carleton University and Collège La Cité is the health and safety of its participants, its internal/external partners, instructors and staff. Due to the, recommended public response to COVID-19 the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Enrichment Mini-Course Program.
Your school board representatives will be contacting you with further details.
Thank you in advance for your understanding during these exceptional times. Wishing you and your family the best of health and well-being.
Carleton University offers mini-courses in a variety of subjects. Instructors and graduate students from Carleton’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Engineering and Design, Faculty of Public Affairs, Faculty of Science and Sprott School of Business teach the mini-courses.
Admission and registration
The mini-courses are open to those students from grades 8 to 11 in Ontario and secondary levels II to V in Quebec who have demonstrated excellent academic performance, and whose school board or private school is a participating member of the program.
Once a student is admitted into a program, they will be asked to select and rank multiple courses. Student placement is based on a random computerized process that occurs once all the application forms are received. Consequently, the first come-first serve principle does not apply. The date at which a student submits an application form has no impact on the placement result of this student.
Please note that students are asked to make multiple choices to maximize their chances to be placed; however, the placement process will assign only one course per student, which will be attended all week long.
For further information on eligibility and registration, please contact your school’s administration or your school board representative.
