Enrolment in the Psychology RCT stream is limited: Admission will be limited to 4-5 Masters students entering the Psychology graduate program each year. Admission to qualifying Masters entry spots is decided by the PNB Graduate Studies Committee in conjunction with the RCT Admissions committee.
Formal admission to the RCT stream is decided by an admissions committee following an interview process. Typically, interviews are scheduled in the spring term prior to entry into the program in the subsequent fall term.
Individuals interested in the RCT program stream are asked to indicate so on their grad application - and to include any previous clinical experiences and highlight their clinical research interests in their statement of interest.
Importantly, the applicant’s proposed area of thesis research should focus on an area relevant to clinical psychology questions/issues. A list of potential RCT supervisors may be found in About Us .
Interviews are conducted with Psychology RCT committee members to ensure the above criteria are met. Typically, interviews are scheduled in the spring term prior to entry into the program in the subsequent fall term.
