COVID-19 related information for potential international students

Masters and Ph.D. studies are research-based programs and a Microbiology faculty member must agree to supervise the applicant’s program before the applicant is accepted for admission. Similarly, students who wish to apply to the Pre-Master’s program must have support from a prospective supervisor within the department prior to submitting their application. Please, note that the Department of Microbiology  accepts Pre-Master’s students only in exceptional circumstances.
