Canadian Universities: PhD and Post-Doctoral Degrees
Doctoral programs require many years of schooling, usually in the form of a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree.
A Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) makes you a leading mind in a specific field of study, with years of research, thesis writing, and potential publications before or during the program. They generally last four to six years and once you have completed your PhD, a Post-Doctoral Degree (Post-Doc) is possible. This allows you to further specialize and pursue other research opportunities.
What To Expect
PhDs are for those that are heavily invested in research and wish to pursue academia. Canadian universities have excellent research facilities, acquiring large amounts of funding and grants for the sciences and other related fields. Many top institutions in Canada have provided ground-breaking research, with notable advances in cancerology, innovative technology, and genetics.
