The Institute strongly encourages students who are pursuing a Masters degree program in IHPME to complete their Masters program before applying to the PhD program. However, exceptionally qualified students who are currently enrolled in a Masters program in the Institute may also request to transfer to a PhD program. To do so, they must complete and submit within the deadlines specified, all the documentation outlined above for those students who are enrolled in the Msc to PhD Transfer Program.
Successful applicants to the MSc to PhD Transfer Program will initially be enrolled in a Masters program. The request for transfer into the PhD program should be made no later than June 15 of the first academic year of the student’s initial registration in the School of Graduate Studies.

If the request to transfer is successful, students will be registered in the PhD program at the beginning of the Fall session immediately following the approval of the request. If the request to transfer to is unsuccessful, students will continue in their Masters program.
