MAPLE LEAGUE SHARED COURSES 

What are Maple League Shared Courses? ​

An innovative project to improve student experience, and outcomes, Maple League Shared Courses are regular classes offered as part of the fall & winter terms at Maple League Universities, which are open to students from any other Maple League school. These courses offer an exciting and unique opportunity for students to expand their university experience. Explore unique perspectives, connect with new mentors and peers from across the Atlantic, embrace cooperation, and discover how we can do more together than we can do on our own.

Maple League Shared Courses are either all-online or delivered in a hybrid format, ensuring that all students can take part, no matter what campus they call home.
