Biology Graduate Handbook

Academic year: 2023-2024

We are pleased to welcome you to the Department of Biology at the University of Waterloo. We hope that you find your time here to be enriching and rewarding.  

If you need information about any aspect of the graduate program in Biology or you are unsure about how a specific regulation might affect you, please contact the Graduate Coordinator (April Wettig), Graduate Office Assistant (TBD) or the Associate Chair (Dr. Moira Glerum). We are always available for any questions.

The handbook (link below) will provide an overview and summarize how the graduate program operates and the regulations that you should be aware of. The information supplied is intended to supplement and summarize the information available in the University Graduate Calendar. All regulations in the Graduate Calendar apply and supersede information in this booklet.

If there are any discrepancies between the handbook and current (up-to-date) Biology or University websites, the website will be taken as correct
