The exact timetable for when Canadian universities will open applications for special needs courses depends on the specific school and its individual application timelines. Generally, however, applications opened in late fall or early winter of each year, with a deadline to submit all application materials sometime in the spring.
Universities often have differing timetables for different types of programs – some may be available all year round, while others are only available on a seasonal basis. As such, it’s important to keep an eye out for any admission deadlines and check with your desired university as soon as you know what program you’d like to apply to.
In terms of prerequisites and documents required for applying to special needs courses at most Canadian universities, students must provide documentation from either their doctor/clinician or educational psychologist outlining their special needs (i.e., learning disability). This should include information regarding how long they’ve had the disability/learning difficulty as well as recommendations based upon their assessment results. Additionally, universities may require applicants provide proof of successful completion of prior coursework related to their chosen field or submitted grades from recent studies which suggest that they could cope adequately with higher level study in this area if admitted into university-level classes.
When looking at admissions requirements most schools also focus heavily on relevant work experience that pertains directly to one’s application and desired degree. Working experience is often seen as evidence that applicants can handle demanding academic programs focusing on areas such as assisting people with disabilities in professionalized settings (which is key given the subject matter). So make sure that if applicable you highlight any direct experiences working with individuals who have disabilities whether they be academic or physical ones; this type of expertise carries much weight among all admission departments Canada wide.
Finally it’s important not forget about extracurricular activities—recent trends have shown many universities giving extra credit points where appropriate when evaluating student admissions applications; these activities include service-based engagements such volunteering within local communities or undertaking leadership roles within organizations catering specifically towards those who suffer from mental health issues & disabilities etc.—so don’t overlook possible opportunities here!
