Next Master's cohort intake - September 2022

The School of Child and Youth Care is excited to announce that we are about to undertake a complete review and renewal of our Graduate Program, starting in September 2020.

Our renewal process will include extensive consultation with current students, faculty, community stakeholders, and national and international CYC and allied programs. This process will involve a one-year pause of MA student intake for the 2021-22 academic year.

The next admissions cycle will be for September 2022, when our MA program will be relaunched. The admissions portal for the September 2022 intake will open in February 2022.

We look forward to relaunching a Graduate Program that supports the priorities, strengths and needs of our students and the children, youth, families and communities with whom they work. Applicants accepted into the 2022 MA cohortwill be the first to benefit from our renewed graduate program.

If you would like to be put on a mailing list for prospective 2022 students and receive updates about the progress of our program relaunch, please contact the graduate program assistant, Caroline Green, at
