It can also serves as a stepping stone on the pathway to advanced research training for students planning to pursue a PhD in Rehabilitation Science or related fields.The MSc program in Rehabilitation Science includes both course work and a thesis. Candidates should be aware that the completion of the thesis may take longer. Exceptional students may be considered for enrolment in a part-time program. There will be no residency requirement for part-time students. They must complete the program within five years, however, all course work must be completed within the first two years of the program.

Eligibility Criteria

The TOEFL examination is offered in two formats: the traditional paper-based format (only offered on specific dates in a limited number of countries), and the Internet-based format (IBT). Applicants in countries where the Internet-based testing is not available must register for the paper-based TOEFL which includes the Test of Written English (TWE) component. The Internet-based tests automatically include an essay rating component which is similar to the TWE. All applicants must satisfy a minimum score requirement on the TOEFL and on the TWE/Essay Rating component to be considered for admission. The table below lists the minimum TOEFL score requirements set by each of the four SGS academic divisions.

Minimum required score: 7.0 (Academic)with at least 6.5 for each component.

The IELTS test is available in two test formats: Academic or General Training. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking modules. It is the Reading and Writing components that differ. The Academic version of IELTS measures English language proficiency needed for an academic, higher learning environment. This is the format that is required for an application to the University of Toronto.

Course Modules

To complete the MSc degree, students require a minimum of 12 months of full-time study. The expected duration of the MSc program is 18 to 24 months for full time students, including time for thesis preparation and defense. Engagement in research should be initiated as soon as possible and well underway within six months of enrolment. Students are required to take a minimum of 2.5 courses (see list below).

  • REH1100H (Theory and Research in Rehabilitation Science), 0.5
  • REH2001Y (Rehabilitation Presentations and Proceedings), - expected to attend one (1) year of MSc CR/NCR), 1.0
  • one half course, at the graduate level, in Research Methodology and/or Statistics, 0.5
  • one additional half course, at a graduate level, related to the field of study, (0.5) and
  • a thesis successfully defended before the Thesis Examination Committee.

Each student must:

  • submit a thesis on her/his research, and
  • pass an oral thesis examination. 
  • It is strongly recommended that students prepare a paper for submission to a peer reviewed journal. A Master’s thesis is generally considered to be the equivalent of one full peer-reviewed research paper, with a thorough, integrated literature review and a detailed description of methods greater than allowed in publication.
