How To Apply

1.   Choose a research area and professor(s).

Determine the professor(s) you wish to study with and review the appropriate Website(s).

2.   Determine that you satisfy the necessary admission requirements.

The University has minimum entrance requirements, which may vary between factulty or department. We will evaluate internally based on your transcripts. International students must also meet minimum English-language requirements, which may vary with faculty or department. For the Biomedical Engineering department, you must have an internet-based TOEFL score of at least 100, with at least 25 in each category. IELTS scores are required to be 7.5 overall, with at least 7.0 in each category.

3.   Contact potential supervising research professor(s).

Contact the professor(s) and determine whether he/she is prepared to consider accepting you as a graduate student and can offer financial assistance. If you do not receive a reply from the professor it likely means the professor is not interested. Only continue to step 4, if you have received a positive reply from a potential supervisor. Unfortunately, the department receives many more requests for positions than the number that are available.

4.   Submit a formal application and pay the $100 non-refundable application fee.

If you have a potential professor / supervisor willing to accept you as a graduate student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, then proceed to the submission of a formal application. For other departments, contact the department regarding their policy. Prospective students from some countries are exempt from the $100 application fee.

5.   Submit supporting documents.

Supporting documents may include transcripts, letters of support, English-language documents, and letter of research interests. Required documents may vary between departments.

6.   Final decision

Once completed the student's file will undergo review and recommendation to the Faculty of Graduate Studies for their approval, and the student will be notified when accepted for admission.
