How to Apply

We encourage students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and with strong academic qualifications. Typically, we admit students with a high ‘B’ average (75%) or better, and with relevant scholastic and personal experience.

Potential graduate students should contact the faculty member(s) that they think they might like to work with, well in advance of their application. You can also check our homepage for announcements of funded studentship opportunities.

Applications for both Master’s (MA and MSc) and Doctoral programs can be submitted at any time. Students are normally admitted for September, but we also admit students for programs commencing in January and May. We begin evaluating student applications and determine funding offers January 15 for fall admission. To apply, visit the School of Graduate Studies website to find the electronic application form. You will require official transcript(s) from past universities, two letters of appraisal, and a non-refundable application fee; additional documentation may also be required.

Further information can be obtained from Become a Graduate Student.
