Graduate Studies in Physics @ University of Waterloo & University of Guelph
If you are interested in pursuing further study in Physics and Astronomy, you have come to the right place!
The Graduate Studies in Physics program is a joint graduate program active at the University of Waterloo and the University of Guelph. It is the largest physics & astronomy graduate program in Canada and among the largest in the world.
What does this mean?
When you apply to our program your application is viewed by Physics and Astronomy faculty, at BOTH institutions – that is over 100 prospective supervisors. You will have access to a wide range of courses, with offerings at both campuses delivered electronically or in person, and you will be a part of a vibrant and thriving research community.
Our tradition of collaboration and innovation allows us to offer students a rich and varied graduate experience. With partnerships between; the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, Wilfrid Laurier University, the Institute for Quantum Computing and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, the range of research topics available, is one of Canada's widest and most challenging.
