Graduate Admission Requirements

Admission to graduate programs is competitive and possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Candidates must possess an honours degree, or a four-year bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent, from an approved university.

Graduates holding degrees with high academic standing in fields that are closely related to Chemistry such as Biology, Physics, Geology and Engineering may also be accepted for graduate work in Chemistry although such students may be asked to take additional course work to improve their background in Chemistry.

Candidates must have at least a B- average (70%) in the courses taken in the major field in the last two undergraduate years.

Admission is dependent on the ability of an individual faculty member to fund additional students so it is important to contact those persons with whom you might wish to work before submitting a formal application for graduate study.

More information regarding the M.Sc. program may be found on the website of the Division of Research and Graduate Studies.
