This is a call to those who believe momentous change requires meaningful research, insatiable curiosity, and truth-seekers. 

We believe that a healthy, sustainable future requires us to challenge and sometimes unravel our belief systems while exchanging ideas within a vibrant intellectual community. Trent’s School of Graduate Studies is a place where new ideas can flourish and where students from all corners of the globe are pushing boundaries as they learn and discover together.

Global Research – How New Ideas take Flight

The School of Graduate Studies brings the world to Trent and Trent to the world.

We believe that ideas flourish when our students can connect with the brightest minds in their field, pursue new knowledge in remote and distant communities, and give flight to their creativity without constraint.

With your help, we can support them in their quest for new knowledge as they answer some of society’s most fundamental questions.
