Graduate Studies

If you're interested in applying for a graduate program to work with an Amii Fellow, you'll want to connect directly with the University of Alberta's Faculty of Grad Studies and Research to learn more about entrance requirements and available opportunities.

We also advise you to check out Amii researchers’ own websites (you can find them in the links section of their pages -- check out Our People) to determine any alignment with your research interests and to find out if they're accepting new students for the upcoming academic year.
