Admission Requirements

Applying to Dalhousie's undergraduate programs

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.

Future areas of study

After you complete one or more years of undergraduate level study, you may be able to apply for some professional and graduate programs. Learn more about graduate and professional programs
