Prospective Graduate Students

Entrance requirements include a BSc degree for the MSc program or a MSc degree or equivalent for the PhD programs. UPEI requires grades with a minimum average of 70% in order to consider an application. However, the Faculty of Science normally requires at least a 75%.

Students interested in applying should read and follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Ensure you meet the entrance requirements before applying. International students should learn in advance about visa requirements and language proficiency (for those whose first language is not English).
  • Step 2: Review faculty webpages (see potential supervisors) in the areas of interest. Before applying, students must contact and confirm a supervisor and discuss funding arrangements for the duration of the program.
  • Step 3: Submit a Graduate Application form to the Registrar’s Office. The form must be accompanied by official transcripts and an application fee. You must arrange to have two letters of reference and, if applicable, proof of English proficiency sent to the Registrar’s Office.
