Choose your program
Admission to the MSc Program normally requires a BSc (Agriculture) degree with a major in animal science. Students with other degrees (e.g. BSc honours or general in science) may be accepted. Depending on your academic background, a pre-master program or additional courses may be required. A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in the last two full years of undergraduate study is required. The master programs require a minimum one year of study and research.
The requirements for admission to a PhD Program are either an MSc degree in animal science or equivalent or a BSc (Agriculture) degree or equivalent. In both instances a minimum GPA of 3.0 is required.
Before submitting a formal application through the Faculty of Graduate Studies, potential graduate students are required to take the following steps:
Choose a current graduate student position or identify a professor who is working in an area of your interest. Contact the professor directly to discuss the possibility of joining our graduate program. Please provide your Curriculum Vitae, copies of your transcripts and a statement of research interests. Your referees may be contacted by the professor.
Once the professor agrees and you have secured two years of stipend funding either from a scholarship or from the professor's research grants, only then should you apply formally through the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Please keep the professor informed, especially regarding possible start dates, visa requirements, or any logistical issues.
Applications submitted without a confirmed supervisor will not be successful.
