Application and Admission

Every year the Department of Microbiology and Immunology receives far more applications than positions available. Before applying to the graduate program in Microbiology & Immunology please carefully consider the admission requirements.

The following deadlines are guidelines for Admission applications. If you are a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident and wish to have your Tri-Council Master Scholarship considered through the Department of Microbiology and Immunology you must apply to this Graduate program by Dec 31st. If you are concerned that your application will not be completed by the following deadlines please email the Graduate Program Coordinator for an extension.

International students must apply early in the cycle (your deadline is one month earlier). This allows time for credential verification and study permit processing. If you wish to be considered for the new International Doctoral Fellowship (IDF) https://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/international-doctoral-fellowship competition, International students must apply to the Department by Jan 1st.
