This page contains general information about graduate studies in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Western Ontario, including information about funding, courses, degree requirements, research areas and application procedures.

Highlights for Applicants

  • Applications for admission are considered all year round. Applicants for September admission with financial aid should apply by February 15. However, we are still considering applications for September, 2015, so please apply if you are interested.
  • Most Ph.D. students are offered annual funding of at least $27,000 (domestic students) or $36,000 (international students) per year.  These are the estimated 2015-2016 numbers.  M.Sc. students receive only slightly less.  In addition, many students are eligible for entrance scholarships on top of these base funding amounts.  London, Ontario is a city with a relatively low cost of living.
  • Low student-faculty ratio means easy access to faculty, and graduate courses tailored to students' interests.
  • We have a large number of very active seminar series, as well as colloquia and a series of distinguished lectures.
  • We are a Principal Sponsoring University of the Fields Institute and have interdisciplinary links with the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, the multi-university high-performance computer network SHARCNET, and the Ontario Research Centre for Computer Algebra (ORCCA).
