Degree requirements and course descriptions


Doctoral program

You must meet with your thesis supervisor to discuss your study plan, determine your course sequence and choose your elective courses before you first register on line for your program. Please complete and sign the Student/supervisor course selection agreement form, obtain the necessary approval(s) and return the form to the academic administrative officer in Montpetit Hall, room 241, before you register for the first time on line. Any changes to your course sequence during your studies must be approved by your supervisor and submitted to the Graduate Studies Office (MNT 241).

Proposed course sequence for the PhD program

The PhD program is offered on a full-time basis only.  Consequently, you must register as a full-time student with a minimum of 6 credits, or equivalent, per session and satisfy the residency requirements as stipulated in the General Regulations (B-1 and C-1) of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

Information on the thesis


Automatic registration for the thesis

If you are enrolled in the thesis option and are registering for the first time in APA6999 (master’s thesis) or APA9999 (doctoral thesis), you must register for it through the Self-Serve tool in uoZone. For all subsequent sessions, you will be automatically registered for this activity until you submit your thesis. However, your automatic registration will be blocked if a “severe condition” (e.g. you fail to submit a progress report) appears on your record. In such cases, you must take steps to have the condition lifted, and then submit a registration form to the Graduate Studies Office of the Faculty of Health Sciences (MNT 241).

When you first register for the thesis, choose the section that corresponds to the session in which you are registering:

Section T for the Spring/Summer session

Section F for the Fall session

Section S for the Winter session

Progress reports, comprehensive examinations, theses

All thesis students must review the Graduate Handbook for Students and Supervisors to familiarize themselves with the different procedures to follow and all the documentation they need to complete.

Please refer to the website of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies under General regulations, D. Research: supervision, progress, ethics for the relevant procedures

Registration in courses with ongoing activities


Courses with ongoing activities are courses offered during several consecutive sessions.  Therefore, you must register for the following courses every session if you have not completed all the requirements of your course:

  • APA5915/APA5925 – Internship
  • APA5920/APA5930 - Internship report
  • APA9997 - thesis proposal
  • APA9998 - Comprehensive exam

When registering, you must select the course section that corresponds to the session in which you are registering. 
 

Approval required for certain courses


In some cases (see below), you cannot register online through Self-Serve, accessible through uoZone:

Directed studies courses (APA 5997)


A directed studies course is a personalized course designed by you and a professor to expand your knowledge in a field of special interest. The course is an elective and counts toward your requirements. 

Students who register in APA5997 must complete and sign the Abstract of Directed Study Form, obtain the necessary approval(s) and return the form to the Graduate Studies Office (MNT 241) along with a completed and signed Graduate Registration Form.  It is not possible to extend the course over a two sessions. 

Credit courses, courses additional to program requirements, out-of-program courses, or audited courses


To register for credit courses, courses additional to program requirements, out-of-program courses or for audited courses, you must complete these two forms and submit them to the Graduate Studies Office of the Faculty of Health Sciences:

Bring these duly signed forms to the FHS Graduate Studies Office (MNT 241) before the registration deadline.

  • Credit courses

These are courses that are not specified in the calendar as part of the program requirements but that are considered equivalent to mandatory courses or electives by the academic unit. A failure in such a course will count as a failure in the program.

  • Courses additional to program requirements

Courses additional to the program requirements are those required by the School of Human Kinetics to fill gaps in your academic record (if applicable). They are added to the number of credits that you need to obtain in order to complete the program and earn your degree. If you are studying full time, you do not pay extra fees for additional courses. If you are studying part time, you are invoiced per credit.

  • Out-of-program courses

These are courses that you may want to take but that are not part of your program. You obtain credits for these courses, but they do not count toward your program requirements. You must obtain the approval of your thesis supervisor if you are in the thesis option before registering for an out-of-program course. Additional tuition fees will apply.

  • Audited courses

When you audit a course, you take it without having to complete assignments or examinations. As a result, you receive no credit and your transcript indicates “AUD” as the grade. If you are a full-time student, you do not pay extra fees to audit courses. If you are a part-time student, you will be invoiced at a rate of 15% for each course taken.

Courses taken at another university


You can take a compulsory course, an elective course, or a course additional to requirements at another university. For courses additional to requirements, you must also follow the procedures set out above in the “Credit courses, courses additional to program requirements, out-of-program course, or audited courses” section.

Send your complete application, including your registration form and the description of the desired course, to the Graduate Studies Office (MNT 241) at least 15 business days before the registration deadline to avoid delays in processing. Be sure to remember that, in Canada, you cannot be registered at two or more universities simultaneously without obtaining prior permission from the institutions concerned. 

Please refer to the registration procedures on the Ontario Visiting Graduate Student Application form if you wish to register for a course at an Ontario university

Please also consult the registration procedures on the letter of permission form if you wish to register for a course at a university outside OntarioNote: You no longer need to send a $50 cheque; instead, you will be invoiced for this amount through your University of Ottawa account. 

For courses taken at another university, you are responsible for making arrangements to register at the host university. If you wish to cancel your registration, you must inform the graduate studies offices at both the University of Ottawa and your host university.

 

Change in status (full-time vs. part-time)


Some programs offered by the School of Human Kinetics can be taken either full time or part time. You choose your  status when you apply for admission and we confirm this status in your offer of admission to the program. If you are admitted as a full-time student, you must take a minimum of six credits or the equivalent. If you are admitted as a part-time student, you may register for a maximum of six credits or the equivalent.

To modify your status, you must first review the Office of the Vice-Provost, Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies rules on residence requirements. Students registered as full-time students must meet the residence requirements before they can change to part-time status. Second, you need to complete the modification form. Finally, you must send your completed application to the Graduate Studies Office of the Faculty of Health Science (MNT 241) by the registration deadline.

Please note that switching from full-time to part-time status disqualifies you from earning the Dean’s Scholarshipand cancels admission/graduate scholarships.


 

Orientation activities


 

In September, at the beginning of the academic year, an orientation session is organized for all newly admitted and returning students of the School of Human Kinetics. This session will give you an opportunity to meet the professors and your future classmates, and will help you get to know the various guidelines that apply to your program of study.  You will receive further details on the date and time of this orientation session in August.

The Community Life Service also hosts orientation activites during the first week of classes. You will receive information about this over the summer.
