Admissions Information

Applicants with no prior graduate degree should apply to our MA program. Applicants should apply to the PhD program only if they will  have completed an MA degree in Psychology by September 2018.  Tuition information can be found on the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website.

Admissions applications are first evaluated by the prospective research supervisor(s). If a research supervisor is interested in supervising the applicant, then the program area (e.g., social/personality, clinical) must approve the application, as must the Associate Head, Graduate Affairs. Prospective applicants are therefore advised to review our website to be sure the research supervisors they plan to list in the application are (a) taking a student that year and (b) a good fit with the applicant in terms of research interests. Many applicants  confirm these details directly with potential supervisors via email. Note you are required to select an intended area of interest (up to 3) and potential supervisor (up to 3) on the admissions application; no applicant will be admitted without a faculty member who is willing to serve as research supervisor.
