  1. Hello everyone, I thought I would start a forum for people to ask and answer questions regarding the MIRHR graduate program at The University of Toronto for 2018. Good luck to everyone who is applying!
  2. Hi all, I've been accepted at U of T for their MIRHR program and at U of Waterloo in their masters/phd of I/O psych. some basics: I have 15k funding at Waterloo, nothing at U of T 2 years total length at U of T, minimum 6 at Waterloo My problem: I really liked the lab I interviewed at in Waterloo and think I'd be happy with the people, but I'm not totally sold on going into academia. Everyone there really emphasized the fact that they'll be training me to be a researcher with the assumption that I'll go into academia once I'm done. 6 years is a really long time to invest in something I'm not 100% sure on. I'm also from a big city and when I visited Waterloo I was struck by how EMPTY it was. I'm by no means a party animal, but there was really nothing to do/see/go to in the area. Plus I don't have a car so I'm told it'll be difficult to get around. As for Toronto, I'm really liking the fact that it's only 2 years with a chance to do a phd (if I want to) afterwards. Plus they have a good employment rate right out of the gate. However, I'm worried I'll be shooting myself in the foot if later on it turns out I WOULD like to go into academia. It is a big city though with good public transport (and around 3 hours closer to home) so it's got that going for it. Help? Any advice? I'd love to hear from people who did either of these programs.

    LSE vs. Uni of Toronto

    Hey everyone, I'm a Canadian student who has recently been accepted to the LSE for a MSc in Human Resources. I've heard this is a quite prestigious university in Europe, but not so well known in North America. Am I crazy to pass up the this chance to go to the University of Toronto instead? LSE would cost me about $60,000 vs. U of T $30,000 (including living expenses). Also, as the UK has made getting work visas more difficult, I'm worried that I won't be able to stay in the UK to work after and my degree won't be as recognized when back in Canada. Anybody have any advice or experience?
  4. Hello, I've been accepted into both the Masters of Industrial Relations at Queen's University and the Masters of Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto. Does anyone have any experience with these programs? I was originally leaning towards U of T because it's a more recognized school (especially internationally) and I like the fact that you can specialize in both industrial relations and HR. However, the program is twice as long (it is 2 years versus 1 at Queen's). Doing the Masters at U of T will also mean that I will have to pay at least twice as much as the program at Queen's since I'll have to pay for 2 years of tuition and 2 years of living costs (plus Toronto is more expensive to live in than Kingston). Of course, it'll also mean that I'll be out of the workforce for an extra year. To add to this, Queen's has offered me some funding whereas I will likely get none from U of T. I'm not sure whether job prospects would differ much between the two degrees? Would it be more difficult to get into HR if I wanted with the degree from Queen's? Is the name of the degree (ie. industrial relations) too abstract? I'm also interested in learning about if one program is more satisfying academically. I'm looking at both the quality/learning experience of the program and the job situation following graduation - both are important to me. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
  5. Hi everyone, I am in the process of applying to graduate programs. I have narrowed my choices down to the following: Master of Media Studies - Concordia University Master of Immigration and Settlement Studies - Ryerson University Master of Communication and Culture - Ryerson and York Universities (joint program) Master of Industrial Relations - Queen's University Master of Industrial Relations and Human Resources - University of Toronto My question is does it look bad to referees when you are applying to programs that are quite different from each other? I do have a genuine interest in all of these programs but I am not sure whether the variety would be perceived negatively. As long as I could explain my interest in each of the programs, do you think that that would suffice? Thank you in advance for any tips/advice.
