  • CGS-M applications cannot be submitted or edited after the application deadline.  Late applications will be ruled ineligible.  The CGS-M application deadline is set nationally by the CGS-M funding agency and is not flexible.
  • We encourage students to ask for reference letters early and to send the instructions to their referees
  • Please check early if you have all official transcripts for all previous studies (including transfer credits).  Transcript guidance for applicants is outlined on CGS-M webpage.
  •  Although the SISC academic history document is accepted for UBC CGS-M applications, it may not be accepted by other universities in Canada, so students applying elsewhere in addition to UBC should order official UBC transcripts.
  •  It would help us greatly if applicants use the same email in their CGS-M Research Portal login as in eVision or SIS. This is absolutely not a requirement, but it helps route the applications to correct programs quicker after the application deadline.
