How do you start?

Start by deciding what areas of research interest you and find out who is working in that area. Refer to the “Members” page to find out what professors are working on. Then you may proceed to the application forms.

Next, choose which university to apply to. Carleton University and the University of Ottawa do not share application information, so if you wish to be considered for admission by both universities, you will have to apply separately to both.

Admission Requirements

Applicants should refer to the Carleton University Graduate Calendar or University of Ottawa Graduate Calendar for program Admission Requirements, including Language Requirements. For more information on language requirements please visit the Proficiency in English section found on the “International Students” page.
