Research Supervisor Requirements

Domestic (Canadian & Permanent Residents)
Although a research supervisor is not required to apply to our graduate program, all accepted students must have a research supervisor in place before starting their graduate program.
All international applicants must have a research supervisor in place before an offer of admission can be made. Applicants are highly encouraged to enquire early on about positions with specific supervisors as there are a limited number of graduate positions available for international students.
