    I declined my offer for U of T MPH (Health Promotion) tonight - hope this opens up a spot for someone soon! On another note… anyone heard anything from the UBC MPH waitlist?

    Hi there, Yes, my status was updated from to "Decision". My best guess would be that they are behind in sending out the official acceptances following the "recommendation for admission" letter. Hold tight, hopefully they email back soon.

    My deadline to accept/decline for U of A (health promotion) is this Friday April 6, so you should hopefully hear something soon! I am going to be declining

    A heads up, I received a recommendation for admission from U Alberta (Health Promotion) this afternoon.

    Congratulations!! Me too, caught me totally off guard. What are your thoughts on U of T? I believe U of T is exponentially more expensive than other MPH programs I applied to…. but also the practicum is typically paid.

    I received my acceptance March 6 and have 2 weeks to respond.. so personally yes! I think most people who have been accepted received theirs right around then too.

    Currently (impatiently) waiting for UBC (so that I can response to SFU by next Tuesday!), and anticipating a response from U of T and U Alberta later in April. I feel your pain everyone… my email provider is going to kick me out for checking so often!!

    Hello! Bit of a lurker here that's checking this page with increasing frequency as April approaches… I searched the MPH Fall 2017 page and noticed that the earliest SFU offer was March 8, and the first UBC offer March 13. Let the REAL nervous waiting begin! (I applied for UBC and SFU Population Health Science).

    Hello future MPH buddies! I'll also be applying to MPH programs this fall/winter, and I think I have my choices narrowed to UBC (MPH), SFU (Population health science), UofA (Health promotion or health policy/management), and UofT (Health Promotion, possibly with a Collaborative Specialization in Community Development or Public Health Policy). As for funding, from my research I gather that it is possible to attain if your MPH has a significant research component (i.e. through the capstone project or the equivalent written paper component), such as through the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master's Program ($17,500 for 12 months). One also may be able to get funding during the practicum, depending on where you go. In terms of the schools I'm interested in, I know that UofT has a paid practicum (recommend stipend of $10,000… which is obviously attractive). For UBC particularly, their website states one can apply for up to $2500 in needs-based funding during the practicum (not sure the success rate of getting this though). Many programs also offer merit-based entrance scholarships (which I believe you are automatically considered for… though double-check guidelines online), and some of these awards are contingent on receiving a competing award from another school (i.e. SFU Special Graduate Entrance Scholarship). It drives me crazy that all the funding and tuition info can't all be found in one place on these universities' respective websites… seems you have to go all over the place to find out! Does anyone have any interesting info on funding, tuition or pretty much anything else for UBC, SFU, UofA or UofT?
