To be admitted to the PhD Program in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences the student must meet the admission requirements of both the Brock University Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.
Brock University’s Faculty of Graduate Studies is responsible for establishing the regulations for admission, which specify the minimum entrance requirements. These entrance requirements ensure that students entering our graduate program have both the capacity and preparation necessary to effectively undertake a program of study at the graduate level.
Brock University has a non-discriminatory policy to ensure against discrimination of applicants on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, creed, sex or sexuality.
The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences normally accepts only full-time, degree students.
To be eligible for admission, applicants will normally have:
An applicant, who graduated five or more years before applying to our program and who does not have a relevant degree or a B- average, may be considered for admission if they have done significant relevant work and can present substantial evidence that, since graduation, they have achieved qualifications at least equivalent to the admission requirements. Where relevant, significant professional accomplishments will be considered as evidence of equivalent qualifications; such students may be required to take additional, qualifying courses.
English language proficiency
Applicants who have not completed three or more years of post-secondary work at a Canadian institution or at an institution at which English was the primary language of instruction will be required to provide certification of English language proficiency through one of the accepted program/examinations listed below:
Students admitted on the basis of an English Language Proficiency test score are required to take the Brock University ITELP test upon arrival at the university as a condition of admission.
The student may be required to complete English language courses (e.g. APLS 1P90, 1P91 or Intensive English Upgrading Program for Graduate Students) along with their graduate program.
An applicant requesting a waiver of the English Language Proficiency Test submission requirements must do so in writing, providing verification from the university at which they completed their most recent degree that the language of instruction for that degree program was English. In all cases of requests for a waiver, the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in consultation with the graduate program, will make the final determination.
