Quick Facts

  • The Year End Assessment (YEA), which occurs at the end of the student's first year, consists of 2 components - a written, take home and an oral and is exculsively for Neuroscience Theme students.
    • The written will, ideally, take place in mid-July with the oral exam scheduled for late August the year after the student enters the program (i.e. if you entered in Fall 2014, YEA will be in 2015)
  • YEA is not the QE. For the Qualifying Exam that allows entrance into candidacy, students must write and defend his/her thesis to committee, usually during the student's third year in the program. This QE is required of all graduate students.
