Laycock moved to Edmonton and taught math and Latin for five years while earning a MA from the University of Alberta. He enlisted in the Canadian Signals Corps during World War I, and serviced in France. After demobilization he joined the staff of the U of A and earned a MEd. He attended summer sessions at Columbia and Harvard before enrolling at the University of London, from which he received a PhD in 1927.
