Admission Requirements

The RCT Stream is a PhD program, open to students who already have a Master’s degree. Applicants apply through the department of Psychology, Behaviour & Neuroscience, identifying their interest in the RCT program stream. Enrolment in the Psychology RCT stream is limited and is awarded according to academic excellence, merit and space availability. Admission to the RCT stream is decided by the Psychology Graduate studies committee on the recommendation of the RCT Admissions Committee following a screening and interview process. In most instances, students entering directly at the PhD level will not be exempted from the Masters level coursework. Any exemptions will be at the discretion of the Graduate Studies Committee (GSC).
