Admission Requirements

General requirements for admission can be found on the Faculty of Graduate Studies website: https://www.dal.ca/faculty/gradstudies.html.  The Department accepts applicants with honours degrees (or the equivalent) in biochemistry and molecular biology and also those with research-based training in related fields such as biology, chemistry and biomedical sciences. The Department also requires a Research Statement (1-2 pages maximum) detailing past research experience and research interests for graduate study; a CV or resume is also requested for a full assessment of academic acceptability.  A TOEFL score of at least 600 (paper-based) or 100 (internet), or an IELTS score of at least 7.5 is necessary for those whose native language is not English. The TOEFL requirement may be waived if completion of the degree is at an institution where the language of instruction is English.
