Statement of academic intent

A one- to two-page statement of academic intent outlining objectives in undertaking graduate study must be submitted through the online application to the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. The statement of academic intent can be found through the program section of the application. You may describe career aspirations/plans, specific research interests (if known), and experience relevant to your interests. If a potential thesis supervisor has been contacted, they must be identified in your statement of academic intent. Please refer to the individual program pages for any program-specific guidelines that may be required for the content of your statement of academic intent.
