Graduate Studies Enquiry

If you are interested in graduate studies in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Manitoba, we strongly encourage you to informally contact us, e.g. by filling out the questionnaire below, before formally applying through the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Please note that this enquiry is not an application - it is meant to bring you in contact with potential advisors who would be willing to discuss their research with you and support your formal application to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The Department will post your enquiry on an internal website accessible to all faculty, and will also foward your enquiry to all relevant faculty based on the research field(s) and specific advisors indicated on your form. Please be aware that the Department cannot ensure a reply to the enquiry by the faculty, therefore you cannot expect a guaranteed answer. We strongly urge you get into contact with potentials advisors directly.
Please be aware that you cannot be accepted for graduate studies at the University of Manitoba without the explicit commitment of an advisor. Direct application to the Faculty of Graduate Studies without prior contact to a potential advisor may not succeed and will result in the loss of the application fee, independent of your qualifications.

Please contact us by email if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your interest in Physics & Astronomy at the University of Manitoba. If you encounter any difficulties using this form, please contact Dr. Gwinner.
