Graduate Studies in Physics and Astronomy


The Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Faculty of Science department of Physics and Astronomy offer a two-year program of study leading to a Physics and Astronomy (MSc) masters degree, and a four-year program of study leading to a Physics and Astronomy (PhD), Doctor of Philosophy degree.

Each successful applicant must be sponsored by a faculty member who agrees to supervise the student’s graduate research and provides baseline financial support from research grant funds. Every admitted graduate student receives at least the minimum guaranteed stipend (for guidance, see the section about financial support)
