Process & Important Dates

Our online application system for the September 2020 program closed on March 15, 2020. We are in the process of reviewing all completed applications.

 

 The online application system for the next MScSM program that begins in September 2020, will open on October 1, 2019 and close on March 15, 2020. Only applications submitted through the UofT School of Graduate Studies online application system are considered for admission. In addition, the Admissions Committee only considers completed application files.

Completed application files consist of: completing the online application form, paying the $120 CDN funds application fee via credit card, submitting both the electronic versions of all post-secondary transcripts and arranging for the official transcripts to be mailed directly to the MScSM Program, two reference letters, a resume and a Letter of Intent responding to our five questions listed on the admission criteria/documents page.

The final application deadline is March 15, 2020 however, there are two interim deadlines for those applicants who wish to receive an earlier admission decision.

The November 30, 2019 interim application deadline is recommended for those applicants who have already completed their undergraduate bachelor degree and/or for international applicants who need to obtain a visa to study in Canada. (All visas are the responsibility of students/applicants.) For those applicants who complete their applications between October 1, 2019 and November 30, 2019, their files will be reviewed in early December 2019, with Skype interviews scheduled for mid-December, and an admission decision by January 15, 2020, at the latest.

The November 30 application deadline is not an option for current fourth year students as we require their Fall 2019 grades, which are not usually available until mid Janaury 2020. Fourth year students can apply for the January 31, 2020 interim application deadline OR the final March 15, 2020 application deadline.

The next interim application deadline is January 31, 2020. This is for all applicants who completed their applications from December 1, 2019 to January 31, 2020 . Their application files will be reviewed in early to mid February 2020, with Skype interviews scheduled for mid to late February, and early March 2020, and an admission decision forwarded by mid-March 2020.

Fourth year student applicants can apply for this application deadline, if their Fall 2019 semester grades are available before Janaury 31, 2020.

The final application deadline is March 15, 2020. All application files that are complete from February 1, 2020 to March 15, 2020 will be reviewed in early to late April, with Skype  or Zoom interviews scheduled in mid to late April 2020 and early May 2020 (please note that only qualified applicants will receive an invitation to an interview). Admission decisions will be forwarded to all applicants by early to mid May 2020.

Fourth year student applicants can apply for this application deadline as their Fall 2019 semester grades will be available. Their Winter 2020 semester grades will not be available but we can make a determination on the Fall 2019 grades.

Please note:

  • Only qualified applicants will receive an invitation to a Skype/Zoom interview. (not all applicants with completed applications will receive an invitation to a Skype interview).
  • All admission decisions will be forwarded to all applicants by early May 2020
  • Regrettably, we do not accept or consider late or incomplete applications
