|PhD ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS |
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.
