Admissions

The Program in Biomedical Sciences begins accepting applications in September. Prospective applicants will create an account with the Boston University Centralized Application System (BU-GMS CAS) completing all personal, academic and supporting document sections. Applicants will be able to select the graduate program(s) of choice within GMS, and will be prompted to complete corresponding program materials in order to submit.

The application opens September 1, 2020 and closes December 1, 2020. To complete your application, the following documents are required:

  • Three letters of recommendation
  • An unofficial, English transcript of each college or university attended

The Admissions Committee will select competitive applicants to attend one of two interview days between late January-February. Decisions are generally made following the last interview day, and applicants will be alerted by email. Due to privacy regulations, we cannot give decisions over the phone.
