NOTE: Approval of prerequisite courses for admission to occupational therapy does not imply that the courses have been approved by other departments/programs within the University of Manitoba. 

Additional equivalency information

How to submit a course for prerequisite review

If you are unable to find your courses listed on the MOT website you can check to see if the University of Manitoba has previously assessed courses from your home institution. Courses that have been assessed for equivalency are located in the University of Manitoba’s Transfer Credit Equivalencies database.

Prerequisite course reviews will be completed by the MOT Chair of Admissions for Canadian applicants between May 15 and November 15. If your course has not been reviewed for equivalency you may submit a detailed course syllabus to CORS.MOTprogram@umanitoba.ca during this time frame. Email notification will be provided with the outcome.

Social science or Indigenous content prerequisite requirement

This prerequisite is content specific and most courses from a department of sociology will meet the Social Science requirement. However, Research Methods courses from a department of sociology or Social Psychology from a department of psychology cannot be used as the Social Science prerequisite.

Courses in Cultural Anthropology (not Biological Anthropology or Archeology) and Human Geography (not Physical Geography) will also be considered.

It is anticipated that most applicants to the department of occupational therapy will use Introductory Sociology for this prerequisite.

Applicants with a grade lower than ‘B’ (3.0) in Introductory Sociology, Cultural Anthropology or Human Geography courses can use a higher-level course [with a grade of ‘B’ (3.0) or higher] to fulfill this requirement.

Sociology related courses from other departments and courses that focus on the social situations of specific populations (for example courses from disability or gender studies departments) can be considered.

Courses that address the historical, political, social and/or economic context and contemporary issues of Canadian Indigenous Peoples will be considered for this requirement.

Although only 3 credit hours are required to meet the Social Science prerequisite, applicants may find that having completed additional course work in Social Science will be helpful towards their learning within the MOT program.

Psychology prerequisite requirement

Most courses from a department of psychology will be considered for this requirement. However Research methods from a department of psychology cannot be used.

It is anticipated that most applicants to the department of occupational therapy will use Introductory Psychology for this prerequisite.

Applicants with a grade lower than ‘B’ (3.0) in Introductory Psychology can use a higher level psychology course [with a grade of ‘B’ (3.0) or higher] to fulfill this requirement.

Although only 3 credit hours are required to meet the prerequisite, applicants may find that having additional courses in psychology will be helpful in their learning with the MOT program.

Questions about prerequisites

If you have questions about prerequisites, please don't hesitate to contact us.

 

NOTE: Due to the high volume of inquiries, prerequisite pre-assessments will only be available from May 15 to November 15. After these dates, interested Canadian applicants are encouraged to submit and pay for an application prior to the application deadline.

How to apply

Virtual admission interviews: To be determined

As part of the student selection process, the MOT Admissions Committee will invite a select number of students to attend the admission interview. Interview invitations will be extended approximately one month prior to the interview date. Applicants selected for the interview stage will complete a 20-minute interview with a pair of interviewers over Zoom. More information will be distributed to applicants scheduled to interview prior to the interview date.

CASPer test

About the CASPer test

Applicants to both the Master of Physical Therapy and Master of Occupational Therapy programs in the College of Rehabilitation Sciences must complete the CASPer test.

This online evaluation assesses personal and professional characteristics that we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program.

CASPer, along with Snapshot and Duet, is part of the Altus Suite. CASPer is the only one you must complete.

Test results are only valid for one admissions cycle. Therefore, even if you have taken CASPer in the past, you will still be expected to retake it.

You will need

In order to take CASPer, you must have access to:

  • A laptop or desktop computer
  • Webcam
  • Microphone
  • Reliable high-speed internet connection (speed of at least 1.5 Mbps and upload speed of at least 2 Mbps)
  • Valid email address (the same one you will use to submit your application)

You must also be prepared to present government-issued photo ID.

Registration

To register for the test (CSP-10201 Canadian Professional Health Sciences), visit Altus and register under your specific country using a piece of government-issued photo ID.

Ensure you have selected either the correct program for distribution before the posted distribution deadline.

Depending on the UM program you wish to enter, you will choose either: 

  • Masters in Physical Therapy, University of Manitoba 
  • Master of Occupational Therapy,  University of Manitoba 

When registering, please use an email address that you check regularly and that you have used for your application as there may be updates to the test schedule.

You will be provided with a limited number of testing dates and times, which have been pre-arranged and approved by your program in accordance with admissions timelines.

Please note that there are only testing dates available for your CASPer test based on your program selection. 

Likely, there will be no additional tests scheduled, but the most up-to-date information can be found by browsing the Altus Suite test dates and fees - TakeAltus on Altus Home - TakeAltus

IMPORTANT: To account for identity verification and payment processing timeline, ensure that you register for your test at least three days before your preferred test date and time. Last-minute bookings are not recommended.

Requesting accomodations

If you require testing accommodations for Altus Suite, you will need to submit the accommodations request form signed by you and your qualified professional three weeks in advance of your desired test date.

Questions?

Please direct any inquiries on Altus Suite to support@altus.as. Alternatively, you may use the chat bubble in the bottom right hand corner of your screen on the TakeAltus.com website.
