Application Procedure

Application Deadline

Applications may be made at any time during the academic year, but students start at the beginning of Fall (Sept), Winter (Jan), or Summer (May) term. The Department responds to complete applications promptly; notifications being issued at any time during the year.

Admission Requirements

An absolute minimum grade average of a B+ (78%), calculated on courses taken in the last two years, is required for admission to our graduate programs.  However, please note that most successful applicants have averages above 85%.  (Percentages here are for North American grading system. Different grading systems in other countries are taken into account.)

Before applying, you should decide on one or two areas of interest from our research areas. You will be asked to indicate on your application which research group you wish to join. Successful applicants are then assigned a temporary research supervisor from that group, with final supervisor decision made once the student is here and has a chance to talk to the group members. Note, however that some supervisors may not accept students in a given year -- if you have a specific person you wish to work with, please feel free to contact them directly.
