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

Applications for Fall 2024 are now closed.  Please consider applying for Fall 2025 in September of 2024.  

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.  When you are ready to apply, click here to launch the online UCLA Application for Graduate Admission.

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.
