1. SGS Application Form
To start your application you must go to the School of Graduate Studies Online Application Form.
2. Fees
You must pay your Application Fee before we are able to see your materials.
3. Review
When complete, your application will be reviewed for completeness and fit with our selection criteria.
4. Interview
Applicants with completed applications who fit our program are contacted for an interview.  Interviews are done in person for local applicants and online for non-colocated applicants.
5. Selection
Following the interview, our Program Committee meets to deliberate on interviewed candidates.  The Committee summarizes your file and makes a recommendation on your application (Recommend, Reject or More Information Needed).
6. Approval
The Admissions Committee or its designate(s) review the applications.  Recommended applications who meet the program requirements are approved for an SGS admissions offer.  Other files are issued rejection letters or are designated with specific conditions that need to be cleared before reconsideration.
7. Offer
Successful applicants will receive a letter of offer (a PDF and a hardcopy).   Candidates have up to two weeks to make their decisions.  Since enrollment is limited, candidates who commit to the program will have a reserved space that will not be offered to other prospective students.
8. Fees & Registration
Candidates who accept the offer are then assisted with fee payment.  Candidates may not register until fees are paid or deferred.



Direct and open discussion is the best way to ensure a match between the program and the applicant. Thus, all eligible applicants who submit completed applications (including LOI, CV, unofficial transcripts, application fee, and 3 referee letters) will be contacted for an interview.


After the interview, your application documents and TRP assessment are forwarded to the Program and Admissions Committee for review. Upon review, the Admissions Committee may issue an “Offer of Admission”.  In some cases, the Committee may make a conditional offer or defer their decision and ask for more documentation.


Successful applicants will be contacted in writing. Since the TRP is a cohort-based program with a limited enrollment, you will be given two weeks to decide whether to accept, reject, or defer your offer, after which other applicants will be contacted. Once the cohort has been established, letters will be sent to the unsuccessful applicants. Since enrollment is limited (25-30 students per cohort), not all applicants who meet the minimum requirements are made offers of admission.



Applications are open for a Fall 2020 start.


We will be conducting interviews on an ongoing basis.  You will be invited for an interview as soon as your application is complete.  Offer letters will be also sent on an ongoing basis.  Propsective students who apply after the cohort places are filled will be offered to join a waiting list.
