Financial Assistance

Financial Support

The MES degree program is an accelerated, course-based program with a cooperative work term. The funding model for accelerated programs that include a cooperative work term is different from the funding model in place for two-year Master's programs that include a thesis component. As a result, university-based funding for MES students is limited to bursary assistance and Western’s work-study program. MES students may apply for employment on campus in Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) or Graduate Student Assistant (GSA) roles offered across campus, but securing a position is neither facilitated by the MES Program Office nor guaranteed.
