Research Masters: Application Steps

The field of planning includes many rich and diverse areas of research. At SCARP we have a small number of faculty with dedicated expertise in a subset of planning areas. Therefore, our Research-based Masters (MAP/MScP) program focuses on nurturing and supervising a small number of select applicants. We take great care in ensuring a good match between student, supervisor, and area of research and invite you to follow these steps:

2. Receive Invitation to Apply - December 6, 2019 - Prospective applicants notified whether they are invited to complete a full application.  

3. Submit Full Application - February 1, 2020 - Deadline for full application by invited applicants only. Uninvited applications will not be considered.

4. Receive Admission Decision - March 1, 2020 - Applicants will be notified of admission and funding decisions at approximately this date. Date may shift slightly to coincide with relevant funding announcements.
