Master's degree in Canada: admission process for foreign students

Master's degree in Canada: admission process for foreign students

The rules for admission to master's programs at Canadian universities are  in many ways similar to those that exist in other countries of the world. There is a mandatory list of requirements that must be met by a student wishing to study for master's programs.

Bachelor's degree with good academic results

According to the bachelor's diploma, the average score (GPA) is displayed, which must not be lower than the indicator set in the entrance requirements for the master's program of a particular university (for example, from 3.0). At the same time, some specialties (as a rule, technical, economic) require a bachelor's degree in a relevant field, since studying in a master's program involves more in-depth work in a previously chosen direction.

International language certificate confirming the required minimum level of English proficiency

It can be an American TOEFL certificate with a total score of 88 and at least 20 in each module, its British analogue Academic IELTS - from 6.5 points and at least 6.0 in each block. If training is conducted in French, which has official status in Canada, you will need to pass the international DELF exam at the appropriate level. These exams can be taken at official certified international examination centers.

GRE, GMAT certificates, work portfolio

Some programs (for example, design, architecture, art) require a portfolio of works that must be prepared in advance.
GRE and GMAT certificates may be required for admission to economic majors and MBA (Master of Business Administration) programs. These exams are also taken at authorized centers.

Letters of recommendation

Required to confirm the qualifications and professional skills of a potential student by his teachers or employer.
As a rule, 2-3 letters of recommendation are required, drawn up on a form with the signature and contact details of the referrer. Some universities may offer advice on the form and content of this letter.

Resume / Motivation letter

A resume is a student's autobiography indicating his personal data, education received, work experience (if any), achievements, hobbies, etc.
A motivation letter is a logical continuation of a resume, in which a student explains his choice of university, study programs, further plans for professional growth, options for applying scientific knowledge, etc. Typically, a cover letter should be at least 400-500 words long.

Some programs (eg MBA) may require up to 3 years of work experience.
