    2019 MPH CANADA

    Hello, As Public Health applications will be opening soon (depending on when you're applying to of course) and being the thread for last year was already released months before this, I jumped the gun and thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of Public Health applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (already have my eye on a supervisor though) SFU MPH U of Manitoba MScPH
  2. Decided to start a thread for those of us applying to Canadian international affairs programs this fall/winter. Post stats, advice, or anything related to this topic!

I was pretty confident when applying, but pretty nervous now. Anybody who's been admitted into any of these programs, what do you think about my chances? Any information is appreciated :) Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello everyone, My name is Ali and I have applied for Audiology at Western and I am wondering if there is anyone else on the same boat? How was the application process? I saw that the GPA came out the other day so I am a bit worried, I hope it will be good enough for Western? Hope to hear from you and learn about your experiences
  6. Hello, I am attaching my Statement of Purpose below. I have never written one before. Any suggestions and bits of advice? I am applying for Masters of Architecture I am a 25-year young Architect currently practicing Architecture professionally for more than two years and a half. I have been born and brought up in a middle-class family in a small coastal town called Alibag near Mumbai in India. Most of the choice of vacation places by my parents were places of historical importance, monuments, temples, beaches, forts as the overall cost was not so much. I neither had the privilege of visiting any luxurious hotels or destinations or any trips outside my country nor was I much interested in such vacations at that time. I was always fancied by seeing all the buildings and structures around me, even the ordinary ones. I was a kid with too many questions for my parents, and the question I had the most whenever I went to a new place was ‘Dad, do u know who built this?’. Initially his answer would be, ‘Why don’t you grow up and find yourself, and in the process, you might build a good building too’, but eventually at the end of the day he used to find out and tell me, and I used to write the names of the buildings followed by the owners’ name or whoever built it. By this time, I had no idea how the Architecture around me was having an influence on my life for good. When I completed my 10th grade back in 2008, I got the opportunity to join an NGO that my dad was a part of for 10 years. He would teach free yoga every Sunday to whoever wanted to learn yoga. Within a month I got to know that there was a person who comes to learn yoga there was part of an NGO in my hometown, whose activities included cleaning of forts, statues, monuments and it also included trekking and hiking activities. I knew by volunteering there I would get to visit historical monuments, forts and go on trekking and trips for free. There was a senior member in that NGO who was an Architect. I knew he would be the most relevant person to get all the answers for the questions I had about built form. Internet was not very accessible at that time with only dial-up connection with speed in kbps. He used to also take me to site visits on his projects, and I would tag along asking him questions which he happily answered to me. Going to new places I would only notice all the built form around me, and I felt each building, and every structure had a story to tell to me, I just had to observe and ask. I remember getting emotional and crying whenever I saw a damaged monument. Architecture by this time had already started becoming relevant to me in my early life. As a performing child in academics, my family expectations were I pursue science, but that was what I never fantasized. My fantasy was buildings and structures. For these three years, until I completed my 12th grade, I learnt how to sketch, and I made a sketch of every new place that I went to. I also learnt sculpting and bamboo carving during this time. I was very active in sports, and I have more than 75 awards and certificates in various competitions like skating, running, swimming, karate etc. After completing my 12th grade I chose Architecture, and by this time my parents knew what my interests were, and they backed me even though for us Architectural studies were costly. I joined an Architectural College in 2011. However, in 2012 after my 1st year, I had a significant health issue, and I had to take a break during 2012-2013. I re-joined a different architecture college under the same University, which was nearer to my home so I could travel from home daily. For the first 6 months after recovering from my health issue, I travelled daily, two hours to and two hours from college. When I recovered completely, I shifted in a rented apartment near my college. I earned my Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Mumbai. In my vacant time during these five years, I participated in several architectural seminars involving technical and design and workshops on construction techniques by different materials like wood, bamboo, CLT, Etc. I also attended workshops for sculpting, building materials, digital architecture, parametric and organic architecture, acoustics. Etc. I also got the opportunity to assist my professor in two of his projects which were load-bearing structures. I was active in sports at my college. I joined the Kho-Kho team in 2014, got the 4th prize for District Skating Competition in 2016, and was on the football team from 2016 to 2017. I was the cultural head of the college from 2015 to 2017, where I helped to manage and organize cultural events and activities and recruit new members in the association. I was also a part of the Students Council of Architecture from 2015 to 2017. This exposure allowed me to develop my leadership and social skills. My thesis topic for the final year was 'Mixed-Use Development,' and I focused on tackling issues like urban sprawl, migration, congestion, travelling time to and from work and intended to solve them by integrating several building typologies. Metro cities and upcoming Urban cities in India are going to contribute a significant chunk to India’s GDP, and Urban cities are going to be the hosts for international collaborations. My thesis was my sincere attempt to provide an example on how Mixed-Use development can play a vital role in making these cities capable of hosting such global events and pressure without damaging its economy and quality of living, and how my thesis could be potentially implemented on a larger scale. I want to further explore this topic by gaining knowledge about Urban design practices. In the university, the coursework focused on theoretical aspects rather than practical regards. Therefore, to gain practical experience, I started my internship at an Architectural firm back in Jan 2016 and continued for 4 months there, after which I got recommended by my employer to one of the best firms in Mumbai. They hired and allowed to work as a part-time junior architect as my academics were also going on. I took a break for my final year thesis semester in October 2016 and re-joined the same firm back in May 2017 and worked there full time at the post of an Architect & Designer for 14 months till June 2018. I am currently working as a Planning Architect at a construction firm who is a business associate of the previous firm, I worked in. I have been teaching a few subjects at NATA classes every Sunday since May 2017. I also have been freelancing, mostly bungalow projects at my hometown in collaboration with an RCC consultant and a contractor since December 2017. I have been fortunate enough to be able to acquire Bungalow projects through the people I have known through both the NGOs that I am part of, and also through my friends and relatives. In India people like everything that is for free, and people don’t like to work for free. I have been taking advantage of this scenario and had the opportunity to gain tremendous knowledge about the practical application of architecture. In addition to these projects, I am currently working on a Resort project in my hometown. I have been fortunate enough to gain practical knowledge of various construction techniques during this time. I have good practical experience and abilities such as the ability to carry out plans, supervise and oversee the actual construction process. My work has also allowed me to reflect upon my shortcomings and the areas which I need to receive additions and intensive training on. Looking back at my hometown and the places I have been to in India, I know there is so much that can be done to improve the quality and the experience. These places have so much potential for improvement since India is a culturally diverse and vibrant nation. Given the ability, power and responsibility, there is a wide array of things that can be done. I believe that our fraternity has been accountable for everything we have been seeing around us ever since the first thought to assemble a structure or a built form was established. As part of the same fraternity we have the power and responsibility to provide the future generations with a healthy and feasible habitat, and we could offer them with self-sustainable cities and a favourable climate that can prevail for ages, which is possible by the current advancement in technology. Everything we build now will have an impact then. I believe that such self-sustainable cities are likely in the coming decades and I call my version of it a 'Dream City.’ By doing this, we could stop borrowing the earth from our future generations. With the current advancement in space technology and exploration, it is inevitable that we will be building structures in outer space and on other planets, for example, mars. If someone has to be the first person to step on an extra-terrestrial planet why not the person be from our fraternity, and undoubtedly why not an Architect? An Architect is an Artist, imagine building everything from scrap from the perspective of an artist -one who has thorough knowledge about built form & spaces, environment and design. It will be a beautiful self-sustainable place to live in. I have a firm understanding of both the theoretical and practical aspects of Architecture Design and Technical implementation, and I feel that I am prepared to begin the next step of my development which is the pursuit of higher education in Architecture. I think that it is crucial building upon my previous training and education in a stimulating atmosphere full of diverse viewpoints and ideas. The diverse and international students body combined with modern facilities and esteemed professors at your university will provide me with a cutting-edge education that will prepare me for any challenges I may face in the future. It will also put me together for a lifetime of success in the field of Art, Architecture and Design. Your master's program is integral to my dreams and goals, and I will much appreciate your consideration of my application.
  7. Hey all,I am an Architect from India. I completed my bachelor's degree in Architecture ( B.Arch ) in 2017 which is a 5-year degree.I have many backlogs and one year drop. My final grades are 7.8 CGPA ( i.e 7.4 x 7.8 + 12 = 70% )equivalent to 3.7/4 Canadian GPA according to this calculator > https://www.greedge.com/blog/fall-2018-convert-cgpa-usa-germany-canada/ ( scroll down two pages for Canada Gpa calculator on the page )I have 7.5 overall scores in IELTS academic.I have 2.5 years of work experience.Is my profile eligible for pursuing masters in Canada?The degree I want to pursue is1.Masters of Urban Design2. Masters of Planning3. Masters of ArchitecturePlease do not suggest diploma courses. These are the final courses I want to look into.I was talking to an agent earlier who said my profile is low and he suggested considering Australia.However, I am not quite sure whether my profile is a low one as the yeard drop was due to a significant health issue I faced in the 2nd year.I have all my documents ready including ( Portfolio, writing samples, CV, transcripts, LOR )With the deadline being 15th Jan 2019 for most of the Canadian Universities, I am in a panic mode and don't know what to do really. I also want to be eligible for PR later.Any suggestions, please?Thanks in Advance.
  8. Hello everyone, I have been having trouble lately matching my profile with potential MS ECE programs and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with shortlisting potential MS programs to apply to. I aim to apply mostly to universities in Canada and Europe, basically anywhere but the US (as I won't be able to take the GRE in time). I am also mainly looking for research/thesis based degrees, and preferably RA/TA funded degrees. My profile: Undergrad: B.Sc. ECE from an unknown institution internationally, but known regionally and undoubtedly one of the best nationally, Score: 83%. Research Interest: Electromagnetics and optics. IELTS: 9. Publications: 1 Accepted international conference paper in my field of interest. Research Experience: A few undergrad RA experiences/internships (summer internships during undergrad). I have been working as an RA for the last few months, potentially a couple more publications are in the works. Which Canadian/European/Australian/Asian universities can I target with this profile for example for a funded research based MSc. degree? I don't want to waste time and money applying to prestigious institutions where I have no chance, so I would like to know where my 'level' is so to speak. I am an EU citizen if that makes any difference. Would really appreciate any feedback, please let me know if any extra info is needed. TIA .

    Canadian SLP Admissions

    Hi! I'm a 3rd year Biology student hoping to apply to McMaster, UofT, Western, and Dalhousie SLP programs in the next year or two. I have read a couple other threads of applicants who have been accepted and it seems a lot of them have research experience on top of academic references and volunteer experience. My program does not really allow me to conduct any psychological/linguistic research and I am worried that I will not be competitive without it. Can anyone give me an idea as to what their application consisted of? (Whether you were accepted or not)
  10. Hey guys, I have received an offer from the University of Melbourne for their Masters of Speech Language Pathology to start in Feb 2019. I'm planning to return to work in Canada (Alberta) afterwards so I'm wondering if anyone else has gone this route? Based on the course information I've found on their website and comparing it to the registration requirements here it looks like I'd be short some hours. I don't want to spend 2 years and a lot of money on the degree if I won't be able to practice here afterwards! If anyone has gone through this process I'd love to hear how it went for you. I'm thinking of applying to the Canadian schools because it will be easy to get licensed, but because of the time lines I'd have to give up my Melbourne offer to apply here. I know it's crazy competitive here so I'm worried about getting in!
  11. I am a Canadian citizen who has recently graduated with B- (3.2 GPA) in Health Psychology MSc with honours. I have 3.7 GPA for Psychology BSc. Hons degree. However, they are both British psychology association accredited courses which I completed in England because I initially wanted to complete my PsyD degree in England due to the program being 3 years. However, it is very expensive without fully paid scholarships (which I had for my undergrad and postgrad) and I also had a change of heart and I don't want to be far away from my parents anymore so I have decided to move back to Toronto. For York Uni, I have to apply for MA for clinical (can't apply to PhD I checked with the clinical director) and do my thesis all over again (not really opposed to the idea as it will give me more experience) but I wasn't aware that Canadian universities require GRE scores for MA applications and right now I am in England so its difficult nearly not possible for me to do GRE Exams. I am not sure what to do. I am thinking of applying to MA programs regardless and risk it for a conditional offer and do GRE if I get accepted (prepare for it meanwhile as I need that time). I do have 4 years worth of research experience but I don't have publications and I've been working as a healthcare worker for autistic young adults and adults in England but I am not sure if they will consider that for MA. Plus, I have an online appointment with one of the professors working in the autism field at york u and I really want to do research in ASD as well as clinical work. For Ottawa Uni, I can apply for PhD for clinical and I will get accepted for MA based on my MSc and BSc but I have to pass English or French language proficiency test to meet the second language requirement. I am not sure if I have to do the French language test because I do have OSSD and degrees in English but English is not my first language. I was born in India and gained my Citizenship in 2012. In addition to that, I have to forget the entire research aspect in Autism area because the potential clinical supervisor professors are not doing research in autism at UOttawa (not a single one- I checked the entire list). If I don't get into the MA program this year, I know I can apply next year with GRE scores but I feel like I'll waste another year and I don't know if I'll get a job relevant to the clinical program in Toronto based on the education I have from England. And I feel very demotivated and stuck in a dead-end. I've tried asking admissions office/clinical directors/ and a couple of professors but I received very cold replies.

  15. Hello, I have a question that may be too specific but hopefully someone out there has some relevant experience/advice. I am trying to decide what to do as a literature student who would like to eventually complete a PhD in linguistics. Right now I am mostly looking into masters programs as it seems that it would greatly help me to complete a masters before even trying to apply to a PhD, but if someone has a suggestion of a PhD program that requires little background in linguistics, I'm game. Here are my studies so far : B.A. English and French literature at a small liberal arts school in the USA Masters 1 & 2 in comparative literature at the Sorbonne in Paris (all schoolwork in French) -- I will complete my last year of this masters this year. The program I am envisioning doing my PhD in is the Linguistics PhD at McGill, and they have a masters program as well, so I could possibly do one and then the other seamlessly. They do require some preparation in linguistics, so I would probably be referred to their qualifying year. Tuition for that year is about 16000, but once you get into the master, it is funded. I am considering either auditing some linguistics courses this year or doing a full year of classes after the masters in order to give myself some background in linguistics. I feel I need at least a few classes in order to write a good statement of purpose, and I also will need letters of recommendation, and having some linguistics professors would be helpful. There is one program at a French university that looks like it would give me a full course load of introductory classes, it is at the L3 level, so that would be equivalent to re-doing a senior year of a bachelor's program, grade-wise. There are also several masters programs across europe that require little to no preparation in linguistics, and I could alternatively do a masters in Europe and then apply directly to the PhD at McGill. The Masters in europe aren't funded but tuition is free or negligible. I am looking at several universities in Belgium, the Freie University Berlin, and a few universities in France. Does anybody here have experience with McGill and their Qualifying Year, or generally applying to the program? I am worried about it being very expensive if I have to do the qualifying year, which is why I am considering doing a masters elsewhere first. I'm also worried about not having a writing sample in English for the application to McGill (the european masters are fairly easy to get into and don't require writing samples or letters of rec). I'm just feeling very overwhelmed with all the different options across many countries and could use some help/advice. links to programs : McGill : https://www.mcgill.ca/linguistics/graduate/admission Berlin : http://www.geisteswissenschaften.fu-berlin.de/en/izeus/master/bewerbung/Zulassungsvoraussetzungen/index.html Belgium : https://uclouvain.be/en/faculties/fial/selection-et-admission-0.html https://www.programmes.uliege.be/cocoon/20182019/en/formations/condac/P2ULIN01.html https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/faculties/faculty-of-arts/studying-and-education/degree-students/programmes/ France http://www.masterlinguistiquetours.com/Admision.html http://www.univ-tlse2.fr/accueil/formation-insertion/odf-2016-2020/master-linguistique-cognition-communication-licoco--386439.kjsp http://www.u-bordeaux-montaigne.fr/fr/formations/offre-de-formation-2016-2020/master-XB/sciences-du-langage-SCLANG.14/master-sciences-du-langage-program-mna16-216/master-2-theorie-et-description-du-langage-et-des-langages-subprogram-master-2-theorie-et-description-du-langage-et-des-languesnouveau-parcours.html L3 - Bachelor's year : https://formation.univ-paris-diderot.fr/formations/licence-sciences-du-langage
  16. Hello there. I've managed to apply to Schengen universities for this fall semester and I've got accepted, roughly into 2 of the best among them, thanks to this forum and their guidance. Now there is some serious head-scratching going on here as to which of these 2 I should choose. Their CS department of these 2 universities seem to be very close to each other in terms of merit. However, my ultimate objective is to pursue a PhD or possibly get directly admitted to work in one of the north american countries (USA or Canada), preferably in data science field. With that in mind, which of these 2 universities are better for my goals, In terms of recognition among north american companies and universities? Is it possible for an international student to exchange with a reputable north american university or company while studying in either of these universities?
  17. Hi all, I have the following credentials: Undergrad degree from Canadian University (in progress) Work experience relevant to my field (co-op) Canadian citizenship I want to do a Ph.D. right after my bachelor's degree. Since this is rare in Canada, I was looking at some American universities for their Ph.D programs. Hence, I was wondering, will a USA Ph.D. receive the same equivalency as a Canadian Ph.D. in the Canadian job market? I ask this because I noticed that many students with a Ph.D. from overseas (such as Asia) often find it hard to get a job here because their Ph.D. is not recognized. Any opinions/insights welcome 😀
  18. Hi! I hold a 2 year SSHRC that pays me well in T4A income. Along with T4 income and my wife's income our household income is large enough for a mortgage. However, I'm aware that most banks etc aren't familiar with SSHRC or guaranteed funding. Have any Canadian grads had success obtaining a mortgage that takes into account SSHRC or other T4A scholarship income? Thanks in advance!

  21. Hey everyone, Who else has applied/is applying to public policy programs in Canada for this fall? So far, I've applied to just the MPPA program at Carleton since I'm based in Ottawa. If I don't get in, I can always work for a year and then apply again. I also have the public policy programs at Dalhousie and maybe UOttawa as backup options. I considered applying to Queen's though I've decided against it for now. That's where I went for my undergrad and I'd like to go somewhere new.

    MSC in CSE in USASK or YORK?

    Hello everyone. I am aiming for an MSc program starting this fall. I applied to a few places. Among them, I have been offered admission from the University of Saskatchewan and also from York University. Both offers come with fully funded support. This is where the dilemma starts. The offer from Saskatchewan is ideal for me in all respect. The research area, and the supervisor that I have been assigned to matches with my area of interest and with the experiences that I have had from my undergrads, i.e Computer Vision, Deep Learning, Machine Learning. However, York University also comes with a fully funded offer, but the supervisor's research interest mostly lies in the mathematical and theoretical aspects of Machine Learning. Although during the Skype interview she told me about doing something in between (In between the theoretical and application-based aspect of Machine Learning). The most positive side of going to York is, I have my relatives staying there, who might be able to assist me with settling and other things. I would like to know if going to York might have a negative outcome as my research area does not fully match with the supervisors. Or is there any chance that I might have a hard time in the future to have a job if I do my research on Theoretical Machine Learning. I really am confused by these thoughts, I feel like I will miss out this one if I choose the other. I will greatly appreciate your opinions on this. Thanks for reading
  23. Hey everyone! I saw one for the doctoral level but not one for the MA level. Didn't know whether to include the other agencies (CIHR and NSERC)? Feel free to join in or start your own thread. Let's all wait it out together
