Please note:  DUE TO COVID-19 - this schedule is subject to change.   

SPPH does not facilitate registration in these classes, does not maintain a waitlist, and will not force register additional students once the class limit has been reached. If a class is full, please monitor enrolment numbers in the section listing on the SSC (hyperlinked course codes below) - if a seat becomes free, register yourself quickly. You may also wish to check enrolment numbers one or two weeks before the course start date as there may be some movement at that time.
