Our Department offers programs in both physics and astronomy leading to MSc and PhD degrees. We have a vibrant core faculty of 30 researchers covering the areas of astronomy, condensed matter physics, medical physics, and planetary science.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Students applying for PhD entry must have completed an MSc degree (or equivalent) in either Physics, Astronomy or Engineering with at least a 70% (or B) average taken over all MSc graduate courses. Meeting this minimum standard does not guarantee acceptance.

    Applicants to our program are not required to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). However, it would be to the advantage of international students to take the GRE-Physics exam to both strengthen the application and to help the Graduate Affairs Committee more fairly evaluate it.

    * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
