MASc and PhD Application Procedures

Step 1:  Complete the School of Graduate Studies Online Application and pay the application fee by the application deadline.  The following items are required in order to submit your application:

  • transcripts (unofficial are fine)
  • CV
  • two references (two academic or one academic and one professional)
  • letter of intent

The first two references that are submitted and meet our criteria will be considered in the application review.

If admitted, official transcripts will be required before the start of the program.  Transcripts are considered official when they have been prepared, sealed in an envelope and signed over the back flap by an official at the issuing institution.  Official transcripts are to be sent to the Graduate Office:

Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry, University of Toronto
200 College Street | Room WB218 | Toronto, ON | M5S 3E5

Step 2:  Find a Supervisor. For MASc and PhD applicants, an offer of admission may only be considered when the applicant both meets admission requirements and has a faculty member that agrees to provide research supervision and financial support. Visit this website’s Research section and faculty listing to explore our professors’ research interests.  Applicants are encouraged to approach potential supervisors early in the application process, and may approach more than one faculty member at a time.
