Application Information


Since Dec 1st, 2018 falls one the weekend, application deadline has been extended to December 3rd, 2018.


  • December 1st is the deadline date for the receipt of all supporting documents, including letters of reference. We recommend that applicants complete the online application and pay the application fee of $120 (Canadian) prior to the document deadline to allow time for reference letter submission.

  • Students with major national or international scholarships may apply after the application deadline and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


The Get To Know Us Weekend for all admitted applicants to the Department of Physics who currently reside in Canada will take place
in March.

Due to course offering sequence and funding issues our graduate programs are mostly geared to a September start.  January admissions are uncommon (normally not more than one student) and are available only to domestic applicants seeking to pursue a 4-year PhD. Deadline for applications for January admission is August 1st.

All information regarding the admissions process and research in the Department of Physics is available on the Departmental web-site at  We do not send out paper applications or application packages.  All information and application forms are available online at
