    A thesis-based Master’s degree (of at least 2 years in duration), or equivalent, in biochemistry, genetics, or a closely related field, from a Canadian university is required for direct admission to the Ph.D. program. In addition, a cumulative GPA of 3.5 (4.5 scale), or equivalent, in the courses taken during the Master’s program is required. Direct Admission from the Bachelor's Honours or equivalent: Direct entry from the Bachelor’s degree to the Ph.D. degree in this department would only occur in exceptional circumstances. Prospective students would be expected to have extensive research experience, in addition to an outstanding academic background, to be considered for this route. Admission will also depend upon the availability and willingness of a Faculty Member to supervise the student and resources to support the student's research.
