We strongly recommend applying for September, as the Program is designed for students to start in September with the required core courses starting in September each year, and this will also allow you the maximum number of opportunities to apply for scholarships.  If you have questions, please contact the Associate Director of Admissions for further explanation.

*Please note that we offer rolling admission and that we can, in some cases, accept late applications if space is available and your official documents can reach the Faculty of Graduate Studies in time to be approved.

**Please keep in mind that it can take 4 months or more to process a student visa from the application date. You cannot apply for a student visa until you have been officially admitted into our Program by Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
