How to Apply

The Radiation Oncology Physics specialty of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Calgary accepts students into a program.  It is not necessary to contact professors individually in order to apply.  The selection of the research project is made during the first Fall Term and reflects the interests of both the student and the supervisor.  For more information about professors in our program, see the PEOPLE link above.

Graduate and Certificate Programs

The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers an on-line application system for admission to the department through the Faculty of Graduate Studies which is the administrative unit responsible for all graduate students in the University of Calgary. It is the only unit that can formally admit an applicant into graduate school in Calgary, and it is the unit that must approve all candidates before they receive a graduate degree.  Please follow the instructions carefully and ensure that all supporting documents are forwarded to the department as requested. Applications without all required documentation are considered incomplete and not available for review by the department
