How To Get In

Created with Sketch.

The PSA has gathered a set of resources and guides on how to approach applying for graduate school. If it’s something you’re considering, this is the page for you! Some guides are from the perspective of current graduate students in psychology, some are from the point of view of faculty. Keep an eye out on our calendar and our social media accounts, as we often post and link to other online sessions talking about this process!

CPA Student Reps + PSA Workshop

In October of 2020, the PSA and a group of CPA Representatives joined together to present an incredibly well-rounded workshop on the process of applying for graduate school in psychology in Canada, what options are out there for programs, and provided links to all kinds of resources! Thank you so much to Michelle Paluszek, Hugh McCall, Janine Beahm, Keaden Shebaylo and Sydney Sulymka for organizing such a successful event!
