1

A Master’s degree » with a minimum of one year of work experience in a setting that develops, implements or manages programs, services, policies or processes for people affected by or at risk of a disability, and evidence of progressive involvement in leadership activities or roles as evidenced in a curriculum vitae and through letters of reference.

2

A Bachelor’s degree (four-year undergraduate program or equivalent) » with a minimum of 5 years of work experience in a setting that develops, implements or manages programs, services, policies or processes for people affected by or at risk of a disability, and evidence of progressive involvement in leadership activities or roles as evidenced in a curriculum vitae and through letters of reference.

For both routes of entry, admission standards will be upper second-class standing (B+) or above for previous degree(s). Specific degrees for entry are not stipulated in recognition of the fact that many disciplines contribute to the fields of rehabilitation and health.

Application Requirements

At the time of application, official transcripts for all current and previous universities attended can be uploaded to the School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (SGSPA) online application site.

Note: If you receive and accept an offer of admission to the program, we will require you to make arrangements for us to receive an official hard copy transcript that shows that the degree has been granted and the date of graduation, for each degree completed, from the university’s Registrar’s Office (or equivalent).

The transcripts should be mailed directly from the issuing institution to the School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (SGSPA), Queen’s University, Gordon Hall Room 425, 74 Union Street, Kingston, Ontario, Canada, K7L 3N6.

  1. One Professional Reference – a reference that addresses your work and/or volunteer experience and potential for leadership in rehabilitation and health.

    Note: A professional referee is most likely a professional supervisor, or someone in a leadership position, and must address issues of particular relevance for graduate-level education (e.g., intellectual curiosity, initiative, self-direction, organization, ability to synthesize conflicting materials, written communication and oral presentation skills, etc.). An applicant's relationship to a professional referee could be collaborative in nature (e.g., having worked on a project or team together); however, the relationship should not be personal in nature (e.g., a family member, friend, or any other conflict of interest).

  2. Two Academic References

    Note: While academic references are strongly preferred, applicants who have graduated from their last degree more than five years prior to applying may provide scholarly references instead. Scholarly references should be provided by an individual with a post-professional graduate degree, or a professional degree plus scholarly experience (e.g., grant holder, peer reviewed publications). The most likely candidates would be a professional supervisor, or a team leader for a professional or interprofessional team. The referee must be able to address issues of particular relevance for graduate level education (e.g., intellectual curiosity, initiative, self-direction, organization, ability to synthesize conflicting materials, written communication and oral presentation skills, etc.). In addition, referees should address the applicant’s scholarly aptitude and experience in and/or capacity for evidence-informed decision-making.

Your referees will be contacted by the School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs via email, and asked to provide their reference using an online reference form. The referees listed will NOT be contacted until your application has been successfully submitted and the application fee has been received.

Applicants are required to list any skills and abilities that you feel are relevant to your area of study. Please include any leadership experience, continuing education, community involvement, etc. in this section.

Additionally, applicants can provide employment information in order of relevance to your area of study.

This statement must address career goals, the match between the program and these goals, but primarily focuses on the applicant’s preliminary ideas for the applied dissertation project.  If an applicant has reached out to a faculty member in the department for potential supervision, this information should be included.

Satisfactory results in an accepted English language proficiency test must be confirmed as part of the application process. The list of accepted tests of English language proficiency and the minimum score(s) required for admission into graduate programs can be found on the Queen's School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs web site.

Tuition and Fees

RHL students will pay a mandatory annual program fee that will cover the cost of accommodation and meals during the onsite sessions, as well as some course-related learning materials throughout the program.

Information on tuition, the program fee and other fees are available through Queen’s University Office of the University Registrar website

Please note that the program fee amount is available in the Summer Graduate and Professional Programs Fee Schedules.
