Step 2: Check application deadlines
If you are an international student, we recommend you apply as soon as possible, because it can take six months or more to obtain a study permit, depending on your country.
Be sure to submit all required documents before or by the date required. We cannot guarantee that any applications submitted after the specified deadline will be accepted.

- Hold an honours bachelor’s degree (4 years) with an average of 70%, or B (calculated using your last 20 courses)
- Hold a master’s degree with an average of 75%, or B+ (calculated using your last 10 courses)
Some programs have additional requirements, including higher grades, additional documentation and testing. Use the online tool to get more information. Note that some programs are highly competitive and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Supporting documents required can vary depending on the program. Use the online tool to check the documents required for your program and gather them.
Step 5: Gather any necessary letters of recommendation
Most programs require letters of recommendation. These are an important part of your application file, so be sure to think carefully about the individuals who would be best placed to provide you with a letter of recommendation.
