Cohort-Based Learning: The Power of Experience

Concordia University’s unique cohort model is a powerful learning approach that emphasizes collaboration over competition. When you begin classes at Concordia, you’ll be part of a cohort, which is a learning group of students who stay together throughout the program.

Our accelerated degree programs, for both adult undergraduate and graduate students, are built around the belief that adult students already have a wide range of relevant skills and experience. Your individual work challenges and achievements provide the foundation for your studies and contribute to a more enriched learning experience for your fellow classmates. As part of a cohort, you’ll draw on your collective work/life experiences to benefit from the unique knowledge, abilities and perspectives that each cohort member contributes.

Your cohort will quickly develop into a collaborative team, a trusted network and a built-in panel of experts that will contribute fresh insights to your studies.

Cohorts form for all delivery options, so whether you’re enrolled in an online, in-class or blended degree program, you’ll still reap the benefits of the cohort experience.
