Proficiency in English is a prerequisite for graduate admission at the University of Alberta.

Note: Applications will be reviewed by our academic staff and only those applicants who have a supervisor/academic staff member interested and confirmed will be contacted.

Please do not contact academic staff directly.

Our ability to accept students into our graduate programs is limited by the number of supervisors available, research facilities and funding. We receive far more applications to our program than we can accomodate.

We thank all applicants for their interest in applying for graduate studies admission in our Faculty. However, we will only contact individuals selected for further processing.
