The Department of Psychology welcomes international applicants, however, there are limited scholarships, and therefore limited spaces, available for international graduate students in 2021.
|If you have not already done so, please visit http://grad.uwo.ca/admissions/international.html for information that has been specifically prepared for international applicants interested in graduate studies at Western.|
International and domestic students seeking admission to our graduate program follow the same application process; however, you may want to take special note of the following:
- Applicants whose first language is not English must furnish evidence of their proficiency in the use of the English language by demonstrating satisfactory achievement within the last two years in a program that is approved by Western.
- International students who meet the minimum program admission requirements are strongly encouraged to consult with potential supervisors prior to submitting their online application.
- In general, we require that applicants for graduate work in Psychology have an academic background regarded as equivalent to a four-year honours bachelor's degree in Psychology. We realize that undergraduate programs offered in universities outside Canada may vary from our own. As a guideline, we suggest that an applicant should have completed ten full-year courses or 20 half-year courses in Psychology. Well-rounded undergraduate training in Psychology is favoured.
In recognizing the contribution international graduate students bring to the university, Western has entered into a number of partnership agreements with government organizations and programs around the world to bring qualified international students to pursue their graduate degree at Western on scholarship and/or grant.
