Graduate Program information

The University of British Columbia offers graduate programs in Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Biology leading to the MSc. and PhD. degrees. Students apply via a home department (e.g. Mathematics, Zoology, etc) by filling out online applications, or by requesting paper applications by mail. Most of our Mathematical-Biology students are accepted under the Institute of Applied Mathematics (IAM) graduate program. More information about the application procedures can be obtained by contacting one of the following:

Funding opportunities

The majority of our students hold full or partial scholarships. We offer additional funding as necessary from teaching (TA) and research (RA) assistantships. The TA support is connected with teaching-related activities (tutoring, marking, or, once trained, teaching a full course). The RA support is provided by the student's supervisor for work on some common research project.

A new source of support is the PIMS International Graduate Training Centre (IGTC) in Mathematical Biology, offering full scholarships to UBC graduate students through an annual competition.

Canadians and permanent residents of Canada should apply for funding from national and provincial sources, in particular NSERC. All students at UBC can also apply for university graduate fellowships (UGF). Several students have recently held paid ACCELERATE BC and MITACS internships in nonacademic settings during their degree programs.
