Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) is a 10-month intensive Master’s level course held at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, a leading international research centre in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. PSI is designed to prepare outstanding students from around the world for cutting edge research. Graduates receive a Master’s Degree in Physics from the University of Waterloo and a Perimeter Scholars International Certificate from Perimeter Institute.
Students completing PSI are prepared to pursue PhD studies in theoretical physics. Some stay at Perimeter and do their PhD with Perimeter faculty. Others enter PhD programs at other universities. Students applying to PSI, who have received offers for PhD programs elsewhere, sometimes defer starting their PhD to spend one year at PSI.
