Application Procedures
1. Choice of University Site:

Students in the ARTC Program must elect one of the participating university sites as their “home university”. Applications for admission to the program and all subsequent administrative matters are handled at the student’s chosen university.

2. Prospective Student Advising:
Students anticipating an application to the ARTC program should seek the advice of the Principal Investigator or Site Coordinator at their chosen ARTC University site well before the application deadline.

3. Application Forms:
Prospective ARTC students should complete an application for admission to graduate studies at their chosen university site. Application forms are normally available from the School or Faculty of Graduate Studies or Registrar’s Office (or equivalent) at the student’s home university, and should be submitted directly to that body before the admission deadlines.

4. Supporting Documentation:
In addition to the appropriate application form, prospective students are also required to submit the following:

  • Official Transcripts of all university and post-secondary institutions attended.
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation from post-secondary instructors familiar with the student’s prior academic work.
  • An individual Letter of Intent describing the student’s research and professional interests in the area of applied health services research, and describing how the ARTC Master’s program matches the students own goals and experiences.
  • TOEFL Test Scores (or equivalent), for students whose first language is not English.
  • All applicable university fees.

5. Application Deadlines:
Normally, applications for admission to the ARTC Program should be received by March 1st, prior to the student’s anticipated entry into the program. Late applications may be considered if space remains in the program after the initial round of admissions is completed.

Ph.D. Admissions:
For admission to the Ph.D. program, students are normally required to provide a well-developed preliminary thesis research proposal, in addition to the requirements outlined above. This proposal is normally developed in consultation with the ARTC Principal and/or faculty members, who will also assist in the advance selection of a Supervisor. Prospective Ph.D. students are advised to consult with the ARTC well in advance of the required due date, in order to allow time for the proposal to be developed and refined.

Additional Information for Applying to the
Memorial University Site:
  • In addition to other ARTC requirements and those of the School of Graduate Studies at Memorial University, applicants applying to the Memorial University site should also:
  • Secure a faculty member in the Division of Community Health & Humanities (where ARTC is housed at the Memorial site) to be your supervisor should you be successful in the application process.
