Application Process

How do you start?

Start by deciding what areas of research interest you and find out who is working in that area. Refer to the “Members” page to find out what professors are working on. Then you may proceed to the application forms.


You are required to make a choice between two universities, based on your selected program. If you are interested in more than one area of study, you should apply to the university offering your first choice of program.


If you meet the admission requirements but are not recommended for admittance to your first choice of program, your application will be considered at the second university. Select from the programs listed below.


International Students — please refer to the International Students page before proceeding.


Applications for admission to graduate programs may be submitted at any time. However, prospective students who apply early increase their chances of securing financial support for their graduate studies. In addition, applications for admission from outside Canada should be completed at least five months before the desired date of admission in order for students to make the necessary visa arrangements.
