Fast-tracking from the Masters to the Ph.D. program

Excellent Masters students who intend to pursue doctoral studies can apply to be "fast-tracked" to the Ph.D. program, after having completed two terms of course work in the master's program (normally 6 regular courses). Each fast-tracking application will be evaluated by the Ph.D. committee, in concert with the proposed Ph.D. supervisor, on a case-by-case basis. Evaluation criteria will include excellence of the academic record and achievements in research. M. Sc. students interested in fast-tracking to the Ph.D. program should discuss this option with their supervisor. For more information, please contact Diti Anastasopoulos (
