To be considered for the M.Sc. (Applied) program, a complete application consists of:
- Completion of the Graduate Admissions Online Application Apply online (note that applicant statement does not need to be completed here given the separate Letter of Intent you will upload). Please take the time to read the important Graduate Admissions Procedures information preamble before completing the Online Application form.
- Prerequisites Form (uploaded via application checklist)
- CV (uploaded via application checklist)
- Letter of Intent (1-2 pages maximum, uploaded via application checklist)
- Two recommendation letters, each submitted with the appropriate form. Note that this aspect of our application has been updated. One recommendation should be completed by someone who can speak to your academic background and preparation, the other is to be completed by someone who can speak about your professionalism and potential as a clinician (e.g., a job, volunteer, or community service supervisor). ONLY TWO RECOMMENDATION LETTERS (ONE ACADEMIC AND ONE PROFESSIONAL) WILL BE CONSIDERED, SO CHOOSE REVIEWERS WHO CAN BEST SPEAK ABOUT EACH SET OF QUALITIES AS DESCRIBED ON THE RESPECTIVE FORMS. Any additional letters will be deleted and will not help your application. On the electronic application form you must provide the names and email addresses of your referees. McGill will contact your referees and invite them to upload references on your behalf. Recommendation letters SHOULD NOT BE MAILED to the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
*Note: We are aware of the delay in some referees receiving an email invitation to submit their recommendation. Given that this is due to a limitation in the new online system we are addressing this and will consider recommendation letters submitted by January 29th. All other aspects of your application must be complete by the deadline of January 15th.
- Unofficial transcripts (from all universities attended). Once you are admitted, you will be required to supply official transcripts before enrolling for courses.
- Applicants to graduate-level programs at McGill whose mother tongue is not English and who have not completed an undergraduate degree from a recognized institution where English is the language of instruction are required to submit documented proof of competency in oral and written English prior to admission via one of the following approved tests: the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum score of 550 (paper-based) or 95 (internet-based, with a minimum component score of 24 in both Speaking and Writing and 21 in both Reading and Listening); or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with a minimum overall band score of 6.5.
