Qualifying-Year Programs

If you do not have a 4-year honours degree you may be eligible for admittance into a qualifying-year program. Qualifying-year programs are specific to a small number of specific master’s programs. Even after completing a qualifying-year program, you will need to submit an application to the master’s program. Admission is not guaranteed.

If you are interested in completing a qualifying-year program, please contact the academic unit offering the master’s program to which you are interested in applying to see if a qualifying-year program is available and for further application instructions.
