How to Apply

Submitting an Application

All applicants seeking admission to the MSc in Physical Therapy Program must complete the Casper online test and submit an application, available from the Ontario Rehabilitation Programs Application Service (ORPAS), which is a division of the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC). 

There are numerous testing dates available each cycle for applicants to complete the Casper, typically between June and January. Full details are available on the Casper website.

Applications are available from ORPAS annually in mid-October and the application deadline is usually early January. Full instructions on the application process and required documents are provided on the ORPAS website

Notes for Internationally Educated Physical Therapists

The first step for internationally educated physiotherapists who wish to practice in Canada is to apply to the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators for an assessment of their educational qualifications. Internationally educated physiotherapists who are credentialed as having a degree that is substantially equivalent to a Canadian entry-to-practice degree are not considered for admission to the MScPT program.

If interested in bridging the gaps identified in The Alliance credential review or preparing for the Physiotherapy Competency Examination, please read more about our Internationally Educated Physiotherapists Bridging program.

Please note that internationally educated physical therapists are not considered for admission to the entry to practice (MScPT) program. If interested in graduate studies in the rehabilitation sciences, please visit the University of Toronto’s Rehabilitation Sciences Institute.
