Admissions Requirements ‑ PhD program

Is it time to take the next step?

If you’ve completed your MSc, consider taking your career farther by pursuing a PhD in pharmacology.

Not finished your MSc yet? If your first-year academic and research performance was exceptional, you might still be eligible for a transfer into the PhD program.  

Admission to our PhD program doesn’t just depend on how well you satisfy Dalhousie’s general Faculty of Graduate Studies admission requirements. We’ll also look carefully at your undergraduate and graduate academic records, letters of recommendation and your previous research experience. 

International students

If your first language is not English, you must provide evidence of English proficiency. We require a minimum TOEFL score of 600 (paper score), 250 (computer score) or 100 (Internet score).

Please note: International students must complete an MSc before applying to the PhD program.
