Student Age, Gender and Diversity

Including our most recent cohort, current clinical student ages range between 24-36 years of age. Approximately 13% of our student body is male, and 33% of our students have self-identifed as diverse (i.e. minority, disability, LGBTQ), while 3% of our students have self-identified as Aboriginal. We continually seek new ways to increase the diversity of our students.

Student Research Productivity and Funding Sources

Our clinical students contribute to research in various ways. Many students also contribute to papers, presentations, publications as well as hold memberships in professional and/or scientific societies. Almost all of our students have enjoyed research funding, from internal (university-level) and/or external (tri-council) sources.

All incoming students have the option to participate in paid Graduate Teaching Assistantships with the Department of Psychology; MA students are funded for up to 2 years for teaching assistantships, and PhD students are funded for up to 4 years for teaching assistantships. Several students have also held paid Graduate Research Assistantships, depending upon research supervisor funding.
