Application Process

The MBiotech Program admits students once a year. The next application process will begin in September 2021 for the May 2022 intake.

About the Online Application

Applications to the Master of Biotechnology Program must be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) using an online application which is housed on a secure server at the University of Toronto. The online application allows applicants to manage and submit biographical and educational information as well as specific documents (i.e., Letter of Intent, Curriculum Vitae, etc.) immediately to the University.  Applicants can edit an in-progress application and check the status of all documents submitted using a secure password and userID.

A valid e-mail account is needed to complete the online application, as the University will correspond with applicants using e-mail.

Applications are considered complete and can be reviewed only after all documentation is received by the graduate unit (this includes letters of reference submitted online by referees and official transcripts sent by mail). All documentation must be received by the document deadline date.

It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure all documents are submitted by the deadline dates indicated. It is recommended that documentation be submitted well in advance of the deadlines to avoid any disappointment. Please read and follow all the How to Apply instructions carefully.
