Before you apply

PRIOR to submitting an application, the department requires that you identify a supervisor(s) willing to guide you throughout your program. The supervisor(s) are also required to have funding in place to support their student during the first two years of the M.Sc. and first four years of the PhD program.

Review the list of potential supervisors with their areas of interest and contact them directly with a copy of your current CV, transcript(s) and statement regarding your research interest. Once you have a supervisor, follow the step-by step guide to apply for your graduate program.


Applications must be completed (including references) by the deadlines below in order to allow sufficient time for processing and adjudication. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Students must have a supervisor in place in order to be considered for admission. Please note that references will not receive a request email until the application fee is paid and the application has been submitted.
