Application deadline

At McGill, the joint Ph.D. students will be registered in the Department of Human Genetics. The joint Ph.D. program accepts applications for the Summer term only (see deadlines below). Applications submitted after these deadlines may be considered, if a suitable supervisor can be secured.

  • Non-Canadian citizens - January 10

  • Canadian citizens/permanent residents of Canada: April 1

  • Current McGill students (any citizenship): April 1


Students admitted to the joint Ph.D. program will be eligible for tuition fee waivers and stipends at both institutions. Canadian or international students who have applied to the program initially through McGill will receive additional support of $7,000 per annum pro rata during their stay at Kyoto University, and tuition fees will be waived at both Universities for this period.
