  • Personal Statement (Include your reasons for choosing neuroscience as a career and your past research experience, if any)
  • Official Transcript(s)  
    • We require international school transcripts to be evaluated for equivalency with U.S. Standards. The preferred place for this evaluation is the World Education Services (WES). WES charges a fee and requires an original transcript sent directly by the school. Please have WES send their evaluation directly to the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education at the address listed below.
  • TOFEL/IELTS (international student applicants only).  The TOEFL code for Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University is B191.  
    • All applicants who did not receive an undergraduate degree or higher from a school where English was the primary language of instruction must submit either a TOEFL/IELTS score. The minimum TOEFL score for admission is 550 (paper test) and 80 (Internet-based test) unless otherwise specified by the program. The minimum IELTS score for admission is 7.0. Biomedical Graduate Education TOEFL Code is B191.
    • International applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in a third-party, unscripted interview with a company such as InitialView. While an interview is not required, it can help strengthen a prospective student’s application. Interviews do not replace the TOEFL or IELTS; TOEFL or IELTS score submission is required. Fluency in English is imperative for success in the MS in Integrative Neuroscience program.​
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or MCAT (recommended but not required).  Biomedical Graduate Education GRE/MCAT Code is 5244.
