MSc degree The M.Sc. degree is usually a student’s first serious exercise in research and prepares the student for a research or a teaching career. In this programme the student is expected to carry out a research project, generally chosen and designed by the research supervisor. The project should not be open-ended, should have sharply defined goals, and should be of limited duration (2-3 years) and designed to give research experience towards solving a problem.
There are three stages to admission to the Botany Graduate Program: 1. review by the Botany Admissions Committee, 2. acceptance by a supervisor, 3. final approval and offer of admission from the UBC Faculty of Graduate Studies (Graduate Studies). The Faculty of Graduate Studies sets the minimum requirements for admission to any graduate program at UBC. Given that a student meets these minimum requirements, then the biggest hurdle to acceptance is finding an appropriate supervisor.
