Entry requirements

The Master's Degree (M.Sc.):

Four-year Bacheror degree (Honours preferred) with a minimum 75% average in both the final two years of study and the major subject.

Graduates of recognized universities may be admitted to programs leading to the Master's degree. A student with a four-year degree or equivalent in the discipline to which s/he is seeking admission, and who has an academic standing equivalent to 70% or better in the final two years of study (full time equivalent) may be admitted to a Master's program (M2).

An applicant who holds a four-year degree in another discipline, and who has an academic standing equivalent to a 70% or better overall and in the final year of study and the major subject, may also be admitted to a Master's program as a transitional student. Transitional students are normally required to complete a program of no more than five specified undergraduate courses in addition to the graduate courses required of regular students. Upon completion of these extra courses, with a minimum grade as specified by the program, the student may continue in the Master's program as a regular student.

An applicant who does not meet minimum departmental program admission requirements, but who can present evidence of leadership, and/or substantial related work experience, may be considered for probationary admission upon the recommendation of the program. Students who are accepted on probation will be required to satisfactorily complete a minimum of two specified graduate courses, in addition to any other admission requirements, before conditions are waived. During the probationary period no more than two graduate courses may be taken. A student will not normally continue on probationary admission for more than two terms. Graduate credit will be given for the graduate courses after the conditions are waived. The final decision on probationary admission rests with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

An applicant who holds a three-year degree in the discipline to which s/he is applying, or a four-year degree in another discipline, and who has an academic standing equivalent to 70% or better overall and in both the final year of study and major subject may be admitted as a qualifying student, with a recommendation for advancement to M2 level contingent upon completion of a prescribed set of qualifying courses, with a minimum grade as specified by the program. Since qualifying students are not candidates for a degree, a qualifying student is not considered a graduate student.

Applicants are urged to apply as early as possible to enable the program and the Faculty of Graduate Studies to evaluate qualifications.

Possession of the minimum requirements does not ensure admission.

The Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

Master's degree with a minimum 80% average, demonstrate research potential and clear interest, or his/her academic standing is unquestionably superior.

Graduates of recognized universities may apply for admission. In general, admission to graduate study is granted only to those students who have good academic records and who are adequately prepared to undertake graduate work in their field of specialization. In particular, an applicant for admission to a graduate program leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy must have either a Master's degree or, in exceptional cases, a four-year Bachelor's degree, or the equivalent; his or her academic standing should be unquestionably superior.

Possession of the minimum requirements does not ensure admission.

Applications will be received from students in their final undergraduate or Master's year, but acceptance will be conditional until a satisfactorily completed record is submitted.

Candidacy: Admission to graduate study does not imply admission to candidacy for a degree. Admission to candidacy for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy is granted by the Dean of Graduate Studies, upon recommendation of the program concerned, when a student has satisfied the requirements for candidacy of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and of the program, as these may be specified in program listings in the calendar. Admission to candidacy is normally to be regarded as recognition that a student has given adequate evidence of superior capability and achievement in graduate study. A student may not be admitted to candidacy for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy before passing a comprehensive examination in the field of specialization.

Additional Materials: Applicants must submit a list of specific topics studied in Mathematics and Statistics.
