  1. Hey guys! Hope application season has been treating you well. I have narrowed down my choices for masters to the following two programs: 1. MSc Advanced Chemical Engineering with Biotechnology, Imperial College London. 2. MEng. Chemical Engineering at the University of Toronto. At the moment I am leaning towards Imperial, primarily because of its top 10 ranking and the fact that its an MSc. Im assuming that doing an MSc which has a research component keeps both possible routes- phd and industry open, as opposed to an MEng which is purely industry focused. Will appreciate any further advice on this. Note: I will be an international student at both places, so the cost is essentially the same. Will an Imperial degree have more prestige worldwide? Thank you for the help!
  2. Hey all! I haven’t seen a thread like this that is specific to Canada so thought I’d start one. I’ve applied to York, McMaster and UofT for 2020 admission to an MA in polisci. I hope this is an okay number of apps, I know some do a lot more. I’ve also got a few questions if anybody would be able to answer! How are the programs/depts at these unis, how do they compare to each other? York entices me due to it’s supposed left-wing nature but UofT is obviously much more prestigious. I’m unsure as to the quality of the specific programs, I find it’s hard to find info on this type of thing. Also anyone know about the competitiveness of admissions for the programs? What determines admission (ex is a really good GPA in my final year + distinction enough to raise my chances?)
  3. Hello GradCafe people! Seeking some clarity on the subject above. I'm an international student, and I'm looking to apply for an MA Economics in Canada. I'm aiming for UBC, Queen's, UWaterloo, SFU, and McMaster. Reaching out to see if anyone has been through it as an international student, and how your application was. I'm open to sharing my profile - I will add it later when more people discuss. Thank you. P.S: Stay safe during these troubling times!
  4. Just wanted to know if anyone has applied to any Canadian Public Health PhD programs for Fall 2020?
  5. Hi all I've applied to graduate programs in Canada for Classical Archaeology and Classics with a focus in archaeology... My advisors have been a bit unclear and not up-to-date on what the best programs are, international reputations, and the reputations of academics in their departments. Does anyone have any insight into the classical arch programs at UBC, UofA, Mcmaster, and Brock? Where do they rank, which supervisors are highly recommended, if programs are well funded or not? Thank you!!! (i originally posted in decisions, decisions but i think this is more appropriate)

  7. Hi guys! I recently got admitted to UBC's master's program in political science (I also got accepted into U Toronto, but their faculty is much more IR focused, whereas I'm interested in comparative). I'm an American who specifically chose to do her master's outside of the U.S. However, I intend to complete my Phd in Political Science in an American institution (I'm especially interested in the UC system). I wanted to know if any of you had any knowledge of the quality of social science and politics research in UBC, as well as the Canadian system all around. I really like UBC's faculty (they've also offered me funding which is great) but I'm curious as to how this institution is perceived in the U.S. when it comes to applying for PhD programs. I know competitively speaking I might be at a disadvantage compared to graduates who complete their master's at U.S. institutions. Thank you!!
  8. Hi all, I wanted to make a thread for students applying to geography programs in Canada. I'm currently waiting to hear back on admission decisions and would love to hear where everyone has applied/what you're hoping for!
  9. Hey everyone, I have been admitted into the Graduate school of public and international affairs at Uottawa, and the Masters in Public Policy and Public Administration at Carleton University. I am not exactly sure which school offers better job placement (heard carleton might be stronger with COOP), and also how reputation plays a factor. I personally am interested in International Affairs, but after hearing that Uottawa has a french requirement for one of its courses and that only the top 20% of the class gets a COOP placement, it has really made me rethink what is the best choice moving forward. I aspire to work for GAC or an NGO so i'm not sure if having an MPPA will help me or not! Any advice?
  10. Hi, I would like to know if there are any current grad students from UBC Vancouver here. I will be starting my PhD in linguistics at UBC in fall 20, and would love to get in touch with the current/upcoming students beforehand! Cheers! -Aaditya

  12. Hey everyone just wanted to know if anyone has applied to any Canadian Public Health PhD programs for Fall 2020? I'm wondering if anyone has gotten an interview request yet or acceptance, etc.
  13. Hello guys, Has anyone applied to mcmaster msc ehealth 2020? We can discuss the updates here.
  14. I have completed BTech Biotechnology from Anna University, Chennai India in 2014 with a cgpa of 8.86, Department first, university rank holder. Have an above average academic record and IELTS score 8. Worked as an IT professional for five years. Now married, looking for masters in canada in Health Informatics or Bioinformatics. From the official websites of the top 20 universities of Canada, I can see I meet the basic eligibility criteria. But, recently one of the consultants I spoke with, told me that I have higher chances of being rejected either in the application phase or in the Visa phase because I am trying to apply for a life science course but have a good work experience in IT. Is it true? If yes, what other courses should I be looking for? I can share more information if required.
  15. Is there anyone applying to U of C for Fall2020 admission intake. I'm applying for MA History, and I would like to know how they allocate funding (scholarships) and GA to International Students.
  16. 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
  17. Hey folks, so I'm a Canadian B.Sc student at UBC graduating in May. Im looking to go into a masters (in Canada ideally) and I've already got a couple mentors in mind but for some reason I'm terrified of contacting them and don't even know where to start. I know it should be a pretty simple and straight-forward email, but I'm not too sure what to include. Was hoping you guys could give me some tips/pointers on what to email to prospective mentors. Also, what the hell is a writing sample? I'm honestly feeling very confused about the whole process so if y'all could give a man a hand it would be greatly appreciated!!!
  18. Hi! I am in the process of getting a Permanent Residence visa in Canada. It should happen within the next several months. I know for sure that I'll want to get into a Masters (in order to do a Phd afterwards). I do have already a (coursework) MEng in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M. I am eager to start applying before the PR visa process finishes, in order not to waste time (given that I would be actually applying for Fall 2020 and, by then, in all probability, I should already have my PR). Is that feasible? In other words: how long within the process of application for enrollment in a Master degree course as a domestic student in Canada is it necessary to hold the PR?
  19. Hi, I'm new to gradcafe. I'm currently a 4th year student completing a psychology degree at U of T. I am planning on applying to the SLP program at U of T this year however I'm a little nervous because of my GPA. I didn't do as well in a few courses during my second year, and these courses are really weighing down my subgpa to 3.74. I have alot of research experience (two RA positons and completing my thesis) related to speech and language pathology. I am also currently volunteering with an SLP. I'm hoping that my research and volunteer experience, as well as my statement of intent, will make up for my low SubGPA. However, I'm not sure if I really have a chance, considering that most people apply with a 3.85 or higher. Any tips or suggestions to make my application stand out? Do you think its worth applying with such a low subgpa? I would relaly appreciate any advice. Thanks
  20. Hello! I just wanted to ask for opinions on my graduate application. I will be applying this fall, and this will be my first round of graduate applications! Here is my app. info: - Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology (University of Ottawa) - GPA: 3.2/4.0 (last two years) (I am currently finishing up three online courses which I am maintaining a 90+ in, which will be added to my previous courses) - Two strong research letters of reference from the University of Ottawa - Honours thesis was on post-concussion syndrome, with regards to working memory dysfunction (Got an A-) - 4 work verification letters: 1. Walk home service provided by the University of Ottawa 2. l'Arche Ottawa (Support given to an individual with cognitive and physical disabilities) 3. Volunteer crisis responder position 4. Vision therapist experience (Written from supervising Optometrist) Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to improve my application if I do not get in this year! Thanks
  21. Who is applying to counselling psychology programs in Canada this fall? What can I do prepare my application? If anyone here has applied before, what are you tips? I am going into 4th year and will graduate in April 2020. My cumulative average is a 83.8% and my 3rd year average is a 68% (76% if you count the 3rd year courses I took in 2nd year summer) but I expect to bring it up by next year. I have close to 300 hours of paid/volunteer experience and will be doing a thesis. What can do to improve my application? I realize my stats are pretty weak so realistically I may not get an offer this intake period but what can I do to improve my chances in the future? I didn't see a thread on this already so I thought I would start one.
  22. Hi! I'm hoping to get in to an MA/PhD in clinical psychology in Canada, and I could use a little advice from anyone who's applied before or has gotten in! A little bit of background, I have a BSc in neuroscience and English (yes weird combo) that I finished in 2015 in Canada. My grades weren't amazing, particularly in my second year, I did quite well in my final year but my GPA when I graduated was still only 3.0. I got into a MSc Health Psychology degree in the UK and got a 2:1 (which is about a B+ final grade). I've been working in research in the UK since my MSc, I've been a research assistant for about three years, I've worked on two major RCTs and am also a trial manager for an international european study. I have three co-authorships (two more being submitting in the fall) and two first authorships in progress (one being peer reviewed now, one manuscript nearly ready to submit) and working on a 3rd first-author paper but that won't be submitted before December as we're still in the middle of the analysis. I’ve presented one poster at a national conference in the UK and I have some teaching experience in the uni I work in now. My GREs have been fine, I think I can do better and will rewrite them before applying again, my subject GREs were 89th percentile so I will probably leave those as is. I know that my undergrad grades are the biggest thing bringing my application down, but there’s nothing really I can do about that anymore. I’m considering doing a postgrad certificate or diploma in psychology so that I can 1) Improve my overall grades and 2) get courses that I’m missing in psychology that might help my application (even though there was a lot of overlap in my neuroscience degree with the psych courses, I didn’t take social psychology for example). Does that sound like it might help, or will it not matter because it’s not a BSc? My other option is doing a PhD in the UK on the project I’m currently workining on, but it’s not a clinical degree. I could theoretically do a clinical MA afterwards, but MA psychologists can’t be licensed in certain areas in Canada, and it seems silly to do a PhD in the UK and then another MA/PhD in Canada afterwards. On the other hand, it also seems silly to decline the opportunity to do a PhD in a project I like with no security that I’ll get into a program in Canada later. I really want to do clinical psychology because I love the patient aspect and with my background in health psych I would really like to work in a hospital setting or with people living with chronic illnesses. And from the research I'm doing now, I’ve realized that I'll need to be a clinician to do the research I want to do in the future, not just be supervised by one. As you can probably tell from this post I am very conflicted and would appreciate any advice or considerations! Thanks!
  23. I'm curious about some Canadian universities for their statistics programs, but I've heard numerous times that the way master's programs work in Canada is much different than the ones in the US. A few questions I had was: 1. Generally, are Canadian programs usually funded and geared towards research careers? I'm personally not looking for a research career. 2. As an American, do I have to apply with a TOEFL? 3. Am I ineligible for any kind of Canadian federal/provincial funding or aid as an American? Can I take out loans in the US and use them toward Canadian programs? 4. Most statistics programs in the US consist of international students. Is it similar in Canada? And is it much harder to get in as an American (or international) student to master's program in Canada? Any other thoughts or comments are welcome. Thanks in advance for all the advice!!!
  24. Hi Everyone, I created this thread for all of us applying to Canadian Audiology programs. This is a nice way for all of us to support each other throughout this application process! Good luck everyone!
  25. 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!
