Most of our graduate students in BIG are funded through Graduate Teaching Assistantships from their home departments, Graduate Research Assistantships from their supervisor's research grants, or internal or external scholarships. In fact, most students are funded by more than one of these sources. Since funding packages depend on the home department and supervisors, they are highly personalized and we cannot provide any funding information before a supervisor has been identified.
The Biophysics Interdepartmental Graduate Program is a unique, standalone interdisciplinary program. Currently it involves faculty members from several departments/schools in the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences, College of Biological Science, Ontario Agricultural College and Ontario Veterinary College. Much of the interdisciplinarity in the composition of our program faculty is reflected in the research work carried out by our students.
The admission requirement for our MSc program is a 4 year undergraduate degree in science or engineering with at least a B- average, or an equivalent qualification. For the PhD program the admission requirement is a Masters degree in a relevant discipline with at least a B average. Applications from students who have obtained their prior training from universities abroad will be assessed on an individual basis for equivalency considerations.
