Application Information

Applications should be made online through the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research's (FGSR) Admissions web page. There are two application deadlines per year: January 31 or June 30. Late applications will be accepted but we cannot guarantee when they will be processed. General information about graduate studies at the University of Regina is available on the FGSR home page.

Only a complete application is forwarded to the Department by FGSR; therefore, it is important to ensure that all instructions are followed carefully and that all components of the application arrive in good order. Prospective applicants should check the FAQ below and if you have any questions that are not covered, you may always contact the Department (at the e-mail address below) at any time during the admission process should questions or concerns arise.

Should I contact a supervisor before I complete my application?

If you are a course based student, you will not have a supervisor and so you do not need to do this. For thesis-based students it is better to contact someone that you are interested in working with within the department before you officially apply. This will also help us track your application.
