Admissions Overview

We welcome applications from qualified applicants seeking the challenges and rewards of graduate training in biosciences.

The deadline for applications for 2017-2018 has passed.  Please consider applying in September for the 2018-2019 matriculating class.  

Applications are accepted in the fall for the following academic year. The deadline to apply is December 1. Applications must be submitted online via the UCLA Application for Graduate Admission. All supporting materials must also be received by the deadline for your application to be reviewed.

Prospective students should carefully review the Home Areas that comprise Graduate Programs in Bioscience and choose one to which they will submit their application. Applications may only be submitted to one Home Area. Admission committees in each Home Area review applications and make admission decisions.

The review process begins in December, and highly-ranked applicants are invited to UCLA for a personal interview on a weekend in January, February, or March. The interview consists of meetings with faculty and students and includes tours of the campus, research facilities, and the surrounding community. Admission decisions are communicated to applicants following the interview process.
