PhD Track within the MSc Program

The PhD Track has been created for top graduate students who have, or will shortly have, an MSc from outside North America and are interested in pursuing a PhD at UBC.

In the past, such students would typically be admitted to the MSc program. In exceptional cases, students with a BSc from anywhere may also be considered for the PhD Track.

The PhD Track provides a mechanism by which qualified students can transition into the PhD quickly and smoothly, subject to attaining certain standards of performance.
