Accelerate your studies

Bachelor's to PhD

The direct-entry option allows you to enter a PhD program after earning your bachelor’s degree without having to do a master’s.

Master’s to PhD

The doctoral fast-track option allows master’s students to enter a PhD program without writing a master’s thesis.

To apply for a transfer from a master’s to a doctoral program in the same academic unit, you must have a strong academic record and have demonstrated that you are capable of successfully advancing research at the doctoral level.

As each graduate program determines their own criteria for fast-tracking, connect with your Graduate Program Director to discuss your options.
