Admission Requirements

Applicants for both the Applied and Fundamental Immunology programs are judged on the basis of their interest in biomedical research as a career, their undergraduate marks from a recognized four-year undergraduate science program or its equivalent, the recommendations from Faculty familiar with their work and any research experience obtained to date.

Minimum Requirements

Applicants must have completed (or be in the final year of completing) an appropriate 4 year bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent from a recognized university, with an average of at least a B+ (minimum GPA of 3.3) in their final two years. 

Applicants holding a BSc degree with an average of A- in the final two years of undergraduate study may apply for direct entry into the PhD program. Applicants to the PhD holding an MSc degree must have an average of at least B+ in that degree. 

Please note that meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Also, we unfortunately cannot accept international students into the MSc in Applied Immunology graduate program at this time.  International students are encouraged to apply to our Fundamental Immunology (Thesis-based) graduate program.
