Information for Postgraduate Applicants

You are welcome to write me if you need information about the research program in my group. My research interest is in communications networks, particularly wireless and mobile networks.


I regret that I am unable to evaluate the credentials that you send me by email for the purpose of seeking an offer of admission to the MASc or PhD program at UBC; offer of admission can be considered only if you formally submit an application for admission to my department. For further information on graduate admission, click here. Note that it is now possible for exceptionally outstanding applicants who have completed an acceptable bachelorís program to be admitted directly into the PhD program; also, MASc students may request a direct transfer into the PhD program upon demonstration of excellence in coursework and research.


Positions in my research group are already over-subscribed. I can only accept applicants who are truly exceptional in their research and academic records, and only a few of the accepted applicants will be offered Research Assistantships (RA). Since new MASc students will be spending at least the first two semesters on course work, new MASc students accepted into my group should not expect any RA support.


Major scholarship holders are welcome to apply and are routinely accepted; a top-up may be offered to supplement the major award.


Candidates for China Scholarship Council scholarships to study at UBC for the PhD degree: you are required to seek admission to the department in the same manner as other applicants. Please refer to the UBC-CSC agreement for further information. to V. Leung's home page.
