Admission Requirements


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

    Candidates for admission must hold at least a four-year Bachelor’s Degree with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B average) in the last 60 credit hours from a university of recognized standing. In addition, applicants are expected to have received a sound training in biological science. The majority of our master’s students have a strong background in the biological sciences, but they also come from the medical and allied health professions.

    Test Scores:
    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580] or CanTEST [min. 4.5] or Michigan English Language Assessment Battery [min. 85] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 92] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 7]
    Application Notes : English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.
    Additional Admission Requirements:
    • Letter(s) of Reference
    Applicants are required to submit two academic reference letters, either through the electronic reference system in the online application or by paper. Please visit the website for complete details.
