Students are responsible for finding their own supervisor. Faculty members in each field choose their own graduate students and supervise their research-based theses.

Students work individually or in small groups with their supervisor/advisor, focusing on laboratory and field research offering a rich training ground for faculty to mentor students individually.

We accept incoming students every September, January and May. There are no official deadlines for application; your start date will depend on a number of factors including your supervisor's schedule, funding availability or the necessity of a study permit.

We have approximately 150 graduate students, who in turn work with over 100 faculty, adjunct and HRA's.
