Details of requirements and procedures for admission to graduate programs at the University of Saskatchewan are available from the web site of the U of S College of Graduate Studies and Research (CGSR). These include information for international students such as requirements for demonstrating proficiency in English and an estimate of the financial cost of attending the University.

We strongly advise prospective students to contact individual departmental faculty members, to inquire if they are willing to supervise the student, before applying for admission. Information about the research interests of departmental faculty can be obtained from the Department of Veterinary Microbiology or the Vaccine and Infectious Diseases (VIDO) web sites.

Only applicants who are supported by scholarships or through their supervisor’s research grant will be accepted as graduate students in the program. The level of financial support must be at least enough to meet the estimated cost of attending the University (see above). At present the Department does not require applicants to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or entrance examinations other than those required to demonstrate proficiency in English.
