WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THE UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA?
The experience at the University of Ottawa is truly exceptional. It starts
with living in the heart of one of the world’s most beautiful cities,
with its rivers and the famous Rideau Canal just on the doorstep to the
campus. The bilingual learning curriculum is one of a kind globally,
and language integration has been well planned and delivered.
Multiculturalism truly thrives on campus. The CO-OP program is very
meaningful and relevant, creating internships with some of the finest
technology firms and various government agencies in the city and the
rest of Canada.
Be it finance, law, engineering or management, the programs are
interactive and provide the necessary tools to succeed in the industry.
The Alumni Association, with its outreach program that starts while
you’re on campus, keeps the engagement ongoing after you leave, with
relevant programs and benefits. Many key contributions have been
made by alumni who truly believe in giving back, a testament to the
University.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT INSIGHT

                        WHY ARE YOU PROUD TO BE AN
                        INTERNATIONAL MENTOR?
                        As an international student, I experienced the
                        challenges that come with transitioning from
                        one country to another with respect to culture,
                        education and environment. As a fourth-year
                        student and international mentor, I make use
                        of my own experiences to connect with other
                        international students and give them tips and
                        guidance, to ensure a smooth transition from
                        their country to uOttawa. I do my best to help
                        my mentees by providing them with relevant
                        resources available on campus and by giving
                        one-on-one time management workshops to
                        help them keep up with their academics, since
                        the education system in Canada is different from
                        those in the Middle East and South Asia. I did
                        not know I would have such an impact on the
                        experience of other international students when
                        I first became a mentor, but with the help of
                        orientations, workshops, social activities and the
                        mentoring service offered by the International
                        Office, I’m proud to say I made a difference.

APPLYING FOR GRADUATE STUDIES

                             Admission to graduate programs is competitive. Applicants for a master’s must hold an honours bachelor’s
                             degree in a field related to the program for which they’re applying. All applicants for a doctorate must hold a
                             master’s. Admission is not guaranteed even if you meet all the criteria.
                             It can take several weeks to review your file and not all admission decisions are issued at the same time. The
                             timing varies, depending on the program and the strength of the application. If you have applied to more than
                             one program at the University of Ottawa, you may receive a decision concerning admission to one program
                             before we issue a decision for another program.

THESIS AND RESEARCH SUPERVISOR
             uOttawa.ca/graduate-studies/students/theses/supervision
Students admitted to a master’s program with thesis or research paper, or to a doctoral
program, must have a supervisor to guide them in their research and writing. Find out
as soon as possible which professors are good candidates to fulfill this role by following
these steps:

STEPS TO FIND A SUPERVISOR
   1 See the profiles of professors who do research at the University of Ottawa and
     more at uniweb.uOttawa.ca.
   2 Read their profiles to learn about their research and theoretical approaches.
   3 Make the first move: Email a professor to introduce yourself, discuss your research
     and ensure that he or she is authorized to supervise your thesis. Be sure to make
     a good impression by writing in a formal tone, even if it is an email. Include
     information about yourself, such as your areas of interest and their similarity to
     those of the professor.
   4 Set up a meeting, by Skype, for example, to get to know each other and show your
     interest. Have your CV, notes on your project and a list of questions ready. If you
     are visiting Canada, you can even plan a face-to-face meeting and a campus tour.
Professors are not obligated to take on students if they feel it is not a suitable collaboration or if
there is insufficient funding.
                                                                                                         uOttawa.ca
