The period preceding admission is important. A number of tools are available to help you start this new step on the right foot.
Properly identify your interests and personal motivations by browsing directories featuring research groups or becoming familiar with the research topics studied in the fields you are considering
Use the following resources:
- A resume featuring your research experience, publications, professional experience, and any other relevant information (one or two pages maximum);
- An outline of your research project;
- A cover letter or letter of intent;
- One or two recommendation letters from professors who influenced your academic career.
Although these documents are not required by the program you are applying for, they may be a key component in your research director’s decision. This preparation will demonstrate your commitment and skills.
If you are an international applicant or a Canadian applicant living outside of Quebec, consult the key information for applicants outside of Quebec. (in French)
