Tips for your application

  • The statement of intent is one of the most important parts of your application. It is your opportunity to describe your past experiences related to the program to which you are applying and how those experiences led to your current interests in graduate students in this area. Please describe your specific research interests and which two or three professors you would be most interested in working with.

     
  • Your professional reference letter can come from anyone who has knowledge of your ability to work with children and families. Examples may include a supervisor at a volunteer setting or summer camp or an employer at a setting where you worked with children or families as part of your job (e.g., daycare centre, community recreation program).

Admissions Process

The SCCP core faculty members of the APHD Admissions Committee consider applications for the program. Applicants are rated on a 6-point scale, from poor (1) to outstanding (6), on their grades, statement of interest and intent, and academic and professional references.

Relevant research and applied experience, publications and conference presentations are also considered. Each qualified applicant's file is examined independently by two core SCCP faculty members and a mean is calculated. Applicants with high rankings are short-listed.

Faculty members then select students from the short list whom they wish to sponsor. Faculty sponsorship ensures that the interests of the students match the goals of the program, and that students have a committed supervisor.
