Students should refer to the admission requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies for general information and minimum academic guidelines. In general, a bachelors degree in Science (e.g. Ecology, Biology, Zoology), or in relevant quantitative subjects within Arts (e.g. Mathematics, Economics) will normally be required. Degrees from other disciplines will be considered where an applicant's main background is in policy or sociology of fisheries, and where evidence of quantitative experience can be provided. A master's degree is normally required for admission to the doctoral program.
(Graduate students from other universities wishing to visit the Fisheries Centre should consult the UBC Faculty of Graduate Studies webpage and the UBC Faculty Relations webpage to determine whether to apply for Regular Visiting Student status, Exchange Student status, or Visiting Scholar status. Regular Visiting Students must follow the same application procedure outlined above for regular graduate students.)
