Admission Requirements

Applying to Dalhousie's undergraduate programs

For students whose IGCSE or IB exams have been cancelled, your file will be assessed using the course grades established in place of exam results. Applications will not be affected.

For students whose CBSE Class 12 exams have been postponed, existing offers of admission will not be affected by the postponement. We are awaiting the announcement of the new exam date and will update the site with instructions when the date is established. If you have not yet received an admission decision, please watch for updates on this page or contact us at

International applicants must meet our general admission requirements and English language requirements. Each undergraduate program has a minimum overall average that you must meet to be considered for admission.

Your average is calculated using the required courses for your program of choice. The courses that satisfy the requirements will depend on your home country’s curriculum.

Admission into many undergraduate programs is competitive and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. If you don’t currently meet these requirements, you may be eligible for one of our upgrading or pathway programs.
