Supervisor Selection

Incoming students are asked to meet with four to six prospective research supervisors in order to ensure familiarity with all research opportunities within the Department. Some students may do this by means of a formal visit arranged at the time of admission. We strongly encourage students to reach out (eg. e-mail, in person, phone or Skype) to potential supervisors before September and to continue communication with your top choice(s). 

The first week of classes is traditionally designated Supervisor Selection Week during which incoming students finalize their selections, usually on a drop-in basis. In the Supervisor Selection Week Timetable, faculty members specify the days and hours that they are available and students are not required to book appointments. However, in cases where faculty prefer to see students by appointment, this is noted on the timetable.

Complete the Supervisor Selection Ballot and submit it to the Graduate Office by the deadline. Ballots will be reviewed and students will be assigned to a research group by the Graduate Studies Committee. You will be notified by e-mail of your supervisor assignment. Note that you are required to submit at least 3 potential supervisors, in order of preference. Ballots with less than three selections will be returned by the Graduate Studies Committee and may delay decisions.

Students who do not wish additional appointments during Supervisor Selection Week are welcome to submit their ballot as early as September 1.

The School of Graduate Studies has developed a series of checklists for good supervisory practice. Please review these practices to assist you in finding a suitable supervisor.
