Prospective Graduate Students

Applications for admission to our graduate program, with start dates of May 2019, September 2019, and January 2020, will be considered on a continuous basis beginning November 6, 2018, until our departmental admissions targets are met. 

The first major review of applications for admission to EEB’s graduate programs will consider all applications complete (including all reference letters) by January 14, 2019. To be considered for some scholarships, your application must be complete by Jan. 8, 2019. After that date, we will consider all applications until all open positions have been filled, however, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible after Dec. 1 so that you will receive full consideration for as many scholarships as possible and so that potential supervisor(s) will consider your application before they have accepted other students.  If you need your application to be considered before Nov. 6, 2018, as part of a non-University of Toronto scholarship application, please contact us. 

All the relevant application information can be found under Admissions. However, as a first step in the application process, applicants should contact professors at one or more of the three campuses of the graduate department, to discuss possible projects and financial support. Only students who have a committed research supervisor can be admitted to our graduate program.  

To do this, you can look at a list of all faculty on the EEB Graduate Departmental Faculty Page. You can also look at the list of all faculty by Areas of Interest. From the 'areas of interest' list, you can follow the links to find a list of faculty by sub-specialty.
