Audiology 2020 (Canadian Schools - UBC, Western, Dalhousie)

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Just found this forum and would like to add to it! I have applied this year to Western and U Ottawa for Audiology and have been notified that they have both received my applications.... ahhhh so scared! Has anyone else applied to any of these two?

Stay away from the UBC program – its faculty are mostly very disorganized and ineffective teachers and they do not give a rat's tutu to student learning. Speaking as someone who went through it. Be warned.

Current UBC SLP student here; I can’t speak for the audiology students, clearly, but based on my interactions with them I would say this is not the shared general opinion about the program. Personally, the instructors I’ve had for my audiology courses have all been very knowledgeable about the field and passionate about student success. It’s totally possible that you may have less-than-positive interactions with faculty at some point or another, but I don’t think it’s fair to characterize them as disorganized and ineffective as a whole. 

I feel like on a forum like this one, a vague warning does more harm than good since it just contributes to already-present anxieties regarding the whole stressful application process. It would be unfortunate for someone on this forum to feel like their accomplishment of getting into this highly competitive program is diminished because of a comment like this.

Hi there! I’ve recently read through this thread and noticed a lot of you were accepted to Canadian audiology programs, congratulations! I am looking to apply this fall and am wondering what you would all suggest to do for my application to increase the chance of acceptance.

For the past 60 credits I have a 3.99 GPA and am looking to do some volunteer work under an audiologist in town. I am writing the GRE this summer and will have strong reference letters from my professors. Do you think it would be necessary to have do an honors thesis? I’m considering whether or not to do one as I can graduate a semester early if I chose not too and will then have some time to save up!
 

Any and all comments are appreciated, thank you :)

Hi there, 

I am currently finishing up my first year in Audiology at Western. I didn't do an honors thesis and some of my classmates didn't either. I think you should focus on volunteering in an audiology clinic and try to incorporate your volunteering experience in your personal statement. 

Best of luck!
