FUNDING (Teaching Assistantships and Research
Teaching assistantships in the Department are available to PhD and MSc Thesis based students. No
separate application or request is required. Decisions on assistantships and
duties are made by the Department; a typical full-time assignment will
involve twelve hours per week preparing and conducting laboratory
sessions associated with first and second year undergraduate courses.
Normally, this funding will continue for the period of the student's program, to a maximum of 2 years in the MSc program and 5 years in the PhD program, or for a combined total of 6 years in both programs.
*Course based MSc students are not normally admitted with a Teaching Assistantship.
Graduate salaries are reviewed and adjusted annually. The
following are the latest figures of financial assistance from the
2008-2009 Student Income
(figures below are for a first year salary)

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT DIFFERENTIAL FEE
Although not guaranteed, the department strives to pay for the "International Student Differential Fee", for first year international students in Thesis-Based programs. The value of the "International Student Differential Fee" is approximately $1,800 per term.
SUMMER RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP
MSc (thesis-based) and PhD students receive funding for the
month of May from funds provided by FGSR (approximately $1000
depending on the funding available and the number of eligible
students). June, July and August funding is determined by
individual supervisors. Supervisors may or may not
have funding available, and the amount given to students is dependent
on the full-time research efforts of the student.
MSc (course-based) students may receive funding from their
supervisors for one summer only for the months of May to August.
This is also dependent on the funding available and the full-time
research efforts of the student.
