Listing a Potential Supervisor

Most graduate programs require that a potential supervisor be identified and listed as part of your application.  

To list a faculty member as a potential supervisor, please initiate contact with them to discuss your research interests and theirs, and to determine their willingness to supervise your studies.

Browse the faculty listings on the program website of the graduate program of interest to you. You will be able to find a brief listing of each faculty member's research interests and their contact information.

Note: Listing a potential supervisor does not guarantee admission.
