Master's Program

The admission requirement for a M.Sc. in Neuroscience is an Honours Bachelor degree (or equivalent) from an accredited institution, with at least an A (80%) over the final two years; this is equivalent to a high second class standing at some universities. Before admission, it is highly recommended that all students complete a course in mathematics and courses in biological and natural sciences at the university level. Courses in biological sciences at second year levels will be useful for successful completion of the required Principles of Neuroscience course. In exceptional cases in which a student can provide documentation of research potential or accomplishment, admission may be considered with a slightly lower average mark. International applicants must provide a TOEFL score of at least 600 (paper-based test), or 250 (computer-based test), or 100 (internet-based test).

Program Requirements

The admission requirement for Ph.D in Neuroscience is a Masters degree in Neuroscience or in a field with a strong neuroscience and research component, or an MD, DDS or DVS degree with some specialization in neuroscience. In both cases the academic minimum for entry into the PhD program in Neuroscience is at least an A (80%) over the final two years; this is equivalent to a high second class standing at some universities.At present, only candidates with a M.Sc. in a field closely related to Neuroscience from recognized North American or British universities are admitted directly into the PhD program. All others interested in the Ph.D. program are first admitted to the M.Sc. program. They may subsequently transfer to the PhD program within the first 18 months, provided that their progress is excellent and that they have a project that could be developed into a Ph.D. thesis. International applicants must provide a TOEFL score of at least 600 (paper-based test), or 250 (computer-based test), or 100 (internet-based test).
