Search Programs, Info Sessions, Open Houses, Tours

When searching programs:

  • Make sure you have taken/are taking the right high school courses they require for acceptance (called Entrance or Admissions Requirements)
  • Find out if there will be an upcoming Program Information Session (links below)
  • Attend an Open House or book a Tour; find out who to speak to for information specific to the program you want (links below)
  • Make an appointment with a Program Advisor or request more information online (links below)

Be aware of the English competency requirements

  • Universities and colleges will state what grade 12 English mark they require for acceptance
  • If you are not at the level they require, they may have their own ‘Proof of English competency’ test you can write (you must register and book a testing date)
  • If they don’t offer their own test, find out if they recognize the Language Proficiency Index Test and register to do it
  • If English is your second language, please read about the TOEFL and IELTS tests
