My guess is that they won't post that information until late July or during August. I don't remember when it was posted this time.

Can anyone tell me when U of T's application process opens for September 2021 entry to the MSW programs? I keep on checking their website but I can't find a concrete date. Thanks! 

 

Hi

Usually, MSW applications open in mid-October and close in early-mid December.  I applied to U of T last October for the 2020-2021 (September entry) and got accepted.  Application opened  in October 15th and the last day to submit all requirements was December 10th. Hope that helps

Would you be able to share your GPA/experience you have? 

Sure! I have a 3.7 GPA, and volunteered in several women's support groups for a few months each. I also worked at a women's centre for a little over a year until funding ran out, and have since stayed on the board. I was also on the board of a women's health centre for two years. I volunteered as a tutor in a program that supports youth in a low-income community, and that program was expanding every year, so after a year or so of volunteering, I got a job with them as a case manager. Had that job since and it's been almost 4 years.

Hey, thank you! :) I have a BA in Psychology and an SSW diploma, with 2.5 years of paid work experience in a social service setting. I also started volunteering at three places: a nonprofit health agency, a crisis text line, and an agency focusing on people experiencing homelessness. Another way to supplement your application is with professional development and training - some great free online courses that you can take can be found on OCASI: learnatwork.ca and CAMH: https://moodle8.camhx.ca/moodle/.

I did all of the above because I was really worried about my chances since my GPA isn't super strong and I had already gotten rejected from York and U of T when I applied while completing my SSW diploma a few years ago, so I wanted to do as much as I possibly could this time around. 

Advice: start getting in contact with your references now and stay on top of communications so that they can give you a really solid reference when it's time! Take as many online courses/certifications as you can! Try to volunteer if you aren't already :) 

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions, happy to chat.

Congratulations on your offer of admission!! I am also hoping to get into the UWindsor Peel Regular Track MSW for working professionals. May I ask when did you apply for this program and when did you receive an offer? Thank you so much!

Hey all! Any more movement off the waitlist for 2-year MSW at UofT? Trying to remain hopeful here but it's difficult...

Thank you :) I submitted my application in the first week of November and I received an offer the next week, which I was not expecting! I definitely lend the speed of response to the date that I applied - since applications open up in September and I think are due in May of the following year, my application was submitted relatively early. On UWindsor's website, they write: "This program practices "rolling admissions". We process complete applications as we receive them, and offers are extended on a first-come, first-serve basis until classes are full. We recommend applying early to avoid disappointment."

Essentially... apply as early as possible for the best chance! 😛 Good luck, rooting for you!

Hey everyone :) After looking for a Facebook group for the UWindsor MSWwp Regular Track 32-month Peel location (Class of 2023) for a few months with no success, I created one here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/978891365881308/ 

If the link doesn't work, you can search for 'UWindsor MSWwp 32 month - Class of 2023 (Peel location)' and you should be able to find it. Looking forward to connecting with you on there!

To anyone on the waitlist for UofT, did you ask Angela what the progress of your application was? I want to know where I stand (even though I've already accepted Humber College's offer for the addictions and mental health program) and see if maybe there is a chance I get in this year since I was waitlisted last year and then ultimately rejected in mid September.

Hey may I ask why that humber program as opposed to a SSW program (social service worker program)? I am considering going back to college after my BA so looking into relevant programs to boost experience. I'm looking at the Sheridan program, 2 year FT specifically.
