For both the MSc and PhD, students work closely with a supervisor and their research is supported by that supervisor. Thus, no student is accepted into the program unless a faculty member first agrees to supervise that student. Applicants can apply without having secured a supervisor in advance. Graduates with a four-year bachelor’s degree in biological science, or its equivalent, with at least a B+ average in the last two years of study, may be admitted as candidates for the Master of Science degree.
