After you’ve applied

MASc, PhD applicants

Admission to the research program is only offered to students with confirmed sponsorship from a research supervisor. Research-stream programs are thesis-based, and students will conduct research under the guidance of a supervisor. In turn, the supervisor will also sponsor the student’s education by contributing to their research stipend and professional development. Applicants are responsible for selecting a research topic and seeking a research supervisor, and having secured a research supervisor is a condition for admission.
