Education: CSB - Apply

The application process is twofold. Prospective students must apply to one of the collaborating graduate units (check individual websites for application deadlines) and must also apply separately to the CSB. Admittance into a home unit is necessary for admission into the CSB. Applications are assessed by the CSB Executive Committee, which consists of a representative from each of the collaborating units. CSB admission decisions will be made after the CSB receives notification that you have been admitted into the home department. NOTE: admission into a home department does not guarantee admission into the CSB.


Applications to the CSB should be sent to: Rhonda Martin, Executive Assistant, Collaborative Specialization in Bioethics, University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics, 155 College Street, Suite 754, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5T 1P8. Your application must include:

  1. Application Form for Admission pdf

    • provide the reasons why you chose this research project
    • describe the research methodology that will be used to complete the project, and
    • describe what you hope to gain from the CSB, what you will give to the CSB, and what you intend to do once you have completed the program
