    Graduate research and professional training have been part of the University of Chicago's history from its inception. It has more than 100 graduate programs in four graduate divisions (biological sciences, humanities, physical sciences, and the social sciences) as well as eight professional and continuing education schools such as the Pritzker School of Medicine, the Booth School of Business, the University of Chicago Law School, and the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering.

     Chicago is one of the world’s premier research universities, and graduate students gain access to some of the world’s most innovative scholars and facilities, such as the three major affiliated laboratories, the Argonne National Library, Fermi National Accelerator Library, and the Marine Biological Laboratory.

     As well as a wide range of doctoral programs there are also master’s degrees that either terminate after one or two years or lead students towards further doctoral study.

     Each school and division of the University of Chicago has its own form of application, and since study is so specialized at graduate level most programs have their own way of deciding which applicants they wish to admit.

     Generally, an application to UChicago graduate school will mean completing an online application form and submitting university transcripts, GRE and subject test scores, a personal statement, letters of recommendation, an up-to-date resume, and any additional material (e.g. essays) that may be required.

     International students may also have to submit the results of standardized English language tests. The progress of an application can be tracked online, and the university advises students to apply as early as possible.

     UChicago helps graduate and professional school students pay for their education in manifold ways. The cost of programs varies, but in the humanities division work out at around $11,000 per quarter for the first four years, and $3,500 per quarter for years five to 12. Most PhD students receive a full, five-year package, however, which includes tuition and a generous stipend.

     Master’s programs cost around $3,759 per quarter per course. Funding arrangements differ, from the doctoral level, with many master’s programs offering merit-based aid awards and a few offering need-based funding aid.
