Students at The School of Public Policy have the opportunity to take part in several program elements outside of the traditional classroom. The School hosts countless seminars and conferences , many of which are tailored specifically for students. Students can also take part in case competitions where they compete against other institutions across the country, and some even have the opportunity to travel overseas for a course on Israeli public policy. In this course, designed to broaden students’ policy perspective at the international level, students travel to Israel and learn about differences in Israeli and Canadian Public Policy. The course was first launched in 2013 and to date almost 100 MPP and MBA students have participated.
