Admission Requirements

Grade for Entrance Previous Year (%)*70
Prerequisites:*

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

    A baccalaureate graduating average of at least 70% is required.Applicants with a marginally lower 4-year average may be accepted if their performance in the last two complete years is significantly higher (75% or more). An applicant is to have the academic background required to undertake graduate studies in the chosen field. Applicants who fail to meet this requirement but who otherwise meet the criteria may be admitted; however, background deficiencies will be addressed by taking appropriate courses either prior to or in parallel with graduate work.

    Additional Admission Requirements:
    • Letter(s) of Reference
    • Resume/Curriculum Vitae
    • Statement of Research Interests
    Letters of recommendation, preferably from former professors or persons acquainted with the work of the applicant, and in a position to comment critically on the capability to do graduate research or course work, must support this promise of ability.

    * The entrance grade may change from year to year. Please contact the school for further information.

    * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
