After Applying

Check the online application system to ensure that your documents and references have been marked as received and your application is complete by the deadline.

The Admissions Committee will notify you in early February 2020 if you have been selected for an interview. If distance and/or expense prevents you from attending an interview in person, a telephone or Skype interview may be arranged.

Interviews are either full-morning (9 am to 1 pm) or full-afternoon (12 noon to 4 pm) and include a 30-minute Interpersonal Skills interview, a 30-minute Science interview and a 60-minute written component. There are two, occasionally three, interviewers present at each interview. The morning and afternoon interviewees will have an opportunity to ask questions of current MBiotech students over a light lunch and brief tour.

If you have been notified that you have been selected for an interview, please download the Interview Selection Sheet and submit as per instructions (instructions will be sent via email).

A total of 42 students will be accepted into the program in May 2020. Decisions are based on the analysis and recommendation of the Admissions Committee.
