Students in research-based programs usually require a faculty member to function as their supervisor.
Applicants should browse faculty profiles and indicate in their application who they are interested in working with. No commitment from a supervisor prior to applying is necessary, but contact to faculty members is encouraged.
The PhD program applicants should find a supervisor before you apply. It is very important to contact at least one faculty member who could be a potential supervisor of your PhD work (i.e. has expertise and interest in the area and/or topic you want to focus on) and inquire whether they would be willing to supervise your work.
Some programs require additional test scores such as the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Test (GMAT).
