Course Selection

Upper year graduate students should consult with their Advisory Committee to develop a plan of study that is mutually agreed upon by all.

-Auditing a Graduate Course

-Enrolling in an Undergraduate Course

-Graduate Course Enrollment for Undergraduate Students

-Enrolling in Courses Outside of Your Program

Comprehensive Exam Course

Comprehensive Exams are for PhD students, only. The goal of the comprehensive examination is to provide breadth and depth. Students complete an in-depth study in their subfield of psychology, by working outside their specific thesis topic.

It should be possible to complete the exam (including any preparatory study) in one semester. Students will register for the comprehensive exam course code, PSYCHOL 9999, in the semester that they will complete the examination.

Course Feedback

Your Feedback is Western's online system for administering end-of-course student questionnaires on courses and teaching.

Your feedback matters!

Why provide feedback?

-You contribute to the quality of courses and instruction, by letting us know what is working well and identifying areas for improvement.
-Since student feedback is considered in regular faculty review, including promotion and tenure decisions, it helps the Western community acknowledge outstanding teaching and courses

Your Feedback matters!

When the feedback period opens for the term, you will receive emails from the Course Feedback team encouraging you to participate by accessing the student questionnaire through links on OWL and your Student Centre. 

The Department of Psychology is proud of students’ past participation. In Winter 2018, over 84% of graduate students provided the Department with feedback, well above the university-wide participation level of 58%.
