Prospective Graduate Students

Updated: November 20, 2017

Applications for admission to our graduate program, with start dates of May and September 2018 and January 2019, will be considered on a continuous basis beginning November 3, 2017 (when the online system will open for applications for 2018-2019 admission), until our departmental admissions targets are met. The first major review of applications by the EEB Graduate Admissions Committee will consider all applications that are complete by January 10, 2018. Applications will not be complete until the application fee has been paid and all documents, including all three reference letters, have been submitted. To be considered for some scholarships, your application must be complete by Jan. 10. After that date, we will consider all applications until all open positions have been filled, however, some professors make their decisions about which student(s) to take on in January/February so we encourage you to submit your application by Jan. 10 so that you will receive full consideration by as many professors as possible and for as many scholarships as possible.  If you need your application to be considered before Jan. 10, 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.
