Students interested in the DCS program should already hold an honors or masters degree, to ensure sufficient academic training and some research experience.
Canadian Citizens or students with Canadian Permanent Residency status will be considered for admission.
In the event of a conflict, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (SGPS) regulations will supersede the regulations of the DCS program.
Students interested in the DCS program and applying from universities other than Western University should explore research opportunities at Western by contacting the Assistant Director of Research-Dentistry, and the graduate program in which they might conduct their research. In addition students are expected to visit Western University after making initial enquiries. Candidates who start their planning well in advance of the December deadline have the opportunity to make scholarship applications (e.g. the Ontario Graduate Scholarship) through their (proposed) graduate program.
