Students applying for the programs are encouraged to explore the research expertise of our faculty and contact faculty members directly to inquire about their willingness to act a potential supervisor.
Send the following to the Graduate Chair in the Department of Animal and Poultry Science:
- Two official copies of your academic transcript(s): photocopies are fine at the time of initial application.

FUNDING AND SCHOLARSHIPS
In their applications, students should identify their financial status and state if attendance is contingent on receiving financial aid. The department employs graduate students as marking assistants and a limited number of scholarships, research fellowships and teaching assistantships are available. There is a keen competition for this financial support. Applications for Departmental Scholarships, Research Fellowships and Teaching Assistantships may only be submitted after a student has been admitted.
