Prerequisites for Graduate Studies in Behavioural Sciences
Admission to a graduate-level program in BME requires a previous degree in a related discipline (eg. engineering, biological engineering, medicine) with a minimum B+ average (in some cases this must be an honors degree). Some schools also require some form of advanced experience in a biological or biomedical engineering environment (eg. co-op, directed studies, medical experience, etc).
Admission to a PhD program can either be directly from an undergraduate degree (in addition to already having extensive research experience, and being published in a peer-reviewed journal), or after acquiring a relevant Master's-level degree. A previous clinical medical degree is also acceptable for admission to a PhD program.
As all graduate programs require a supervisor, most schools require this person to be approved prior to final admission.
