Undergraduate admission

International applicants must meet our general admission requirements and English language requirements. Each Dalhousie 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 programs is competitive and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Review the requirements before starting your application:

Please note: if you’ve previously completed some university or college level courses, you must apply as a transfer applicant.
