Covid-19 Response

Classes are in session, and Canada is accepting international students!
Recording Arts Canada has taken serious measures to keep our students, staff and faculty safe during the pandemic. We are also working hard to uphold the world-class standard of education our college has delivered for the past 40 years.

FAQ

How are classes being taught?

All current and upcoming classes, workshops, and feedback sessions are available online through live streams and discussion forums. Some lessons are being delivered on-site in accordance with provincial lockdown guidelines.

Can I take the program entirely online?

Yes! We are delivering daily live classes on schedule with our pre-pandemic timeline.

I’m enrolled in the on-site program, how am I affected?

Our campuses have been adapted for the pandemic, with spaced out lab stations, hand sanitizer for everyone, and strict capacity guidelines.

This allows us to deliver some classes on-site, whenever restrictions are eased. When restrictions are tightened, classes move to our live online format.

What do I need to participate in online learning?

Students must have a laptop, a pair of headphones or monitors, a digital audio workstation of any kind, and a reliable internet connection. We are working to provide students with any additional hardware or software needed to fully participate in activities and projects.

Is this pandemic ever going to end?

We hope so. But we’re prepared to keep delivering our program via our online and hybrid format until restrictions are permanently lifted.

What resources can I check to stay informed on pandemic-related information?
