    Canada requirements for international students

    Canada is now the most educated country in the world, according to a recent report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Most of all, there are a lot of programs for international students. 

    The universities of Canada don't use a centralized system of undergraduate application so the students have to apply separately for each institution they want to attend. However, the most general procedures and requirements to get admission in Canada are: an application form, an official high school transcript or university transcript, CV which present your educational achievements, work or volonteer experience, and a letter of intent (LOI) that demonstrate personal and professional goals of the student and explains the interest of the applicant. 

    IELTS is most widely recognized and accepted English proficiency test in Canada. However, some universities accept TOEFL as an English test requirement. So you'll need to contact the university for the information about the test you have to provide and the score that you must obtain. 


    • All applicants must have completed (or be in the final year) of a four-year BSc or BA degree or its equivalent. The degree should be in the Natural/Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering or Pharmacy.
    • Applicants must have a minimum mid-B (75%) average, or its equivalent, in each of the last two years of full-time study in a four-year undergraduate program.
