Financial Support

Domestic Stipend

New domestic students are guaranteed a minimum annual stipend of $23,000.  This financial support is renewable and will be no less than $23,000 providing students maintain satisfactory progress in their graduate program as a full-time student. Financial support is normally provided for a maximum of 2 years for MSc and 4 years for PhD.

Many students are awarded scholarships and awards, which allow them to exceed this level of income.
