Adding the CIDE specialization to your degree program mid-degree

OISE students who wish to add the CIDE specialization to their degree must meet the CIDE qualifications. Admission to the CIDE collaborative specialization will be based on three criteria in the candidate's application to OISE:

  • Evidence of significant professional or academic experience in an international or cross-cultural setting (minimum of one year)
  • Reference to the way in which insights from that experience contribute to the applicant's present interest and future studies in CIDE
  • Clear indication in the Statement of Intent of an interest in and commitment to the study of any or all of comparative, international or development education

Applications to add the CIDE specialization are reviewed on a rolling basis by a CIDE Faculty Committee and home department chair. It is best to submit a complete application by the beginning of the school year term. Please note that due to increased enrollment in CIDE, there may be restrictions on the number of add collaboratives accepted.

A complete add CIDE application includes:

1. A statement of intent to the Specialization Director(s) of CIDE noting why you wish to enroll in the CIDE specialization. This will be much like the statement of intent you wrote for admission to OISE. In this statement you will need to indicate the CIDE faculty member who will oversee your program completion.

2. A current C.V. that lists your international work experience.

3. The internal add collaborative request form.

4. Return the form to the CIDEC office (7107) or email to cidec.oise@utoronto.ca.
