    Canada requirements for international students

    Canada is now the most educated country in the world, according to a recent report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Most of all, there are a lot of programs for international students. 

    The universities of Canada don't use a centralized system of undergraduate application so the students have to apply separately for each institution they want to attend. However, the most general procedures and requirements to get admission in Canada are: an application form, an official high school transcript or university transcript, CV which present your educational achievements, work or volonteer experience, and a letter of intent (LOI) that demonstrate personal and professional goals of the student and explains the interest of the applicant. 

    IELTS is most widely recognized and accepted English proficiency test in Canada. However, some universities accept TOEFL as an English test requirement. So you'll need to contact the university for the information about the test you have to provide and the score that you must obtain. 



    • Applicants whose native language is not English must also submit the results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL): a minimum score of at least 600 is required (100 for the internet based version). An overall score of at least B and 7.0 with no score of less than 6.5 on each academic component of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) will be accepted as an alternative to a TOEFL score. Scores older than two years are not acceptable.
    • Applicants holding or expecting to hold a BSc may only apply to the MSc program. To transfer to the PhD program, MSc students must apply within 18 months of starting their MSc and pass a candidacy examination that consists of a successful oral defense of a research grant proposal.
    • Admission to a doctoral degree program normally requires a master's degree in Biochemistry or Microbiology from a recognized institution. Students who wish to enter the PhD program after completion of a MSc degree in this department must apply in the usual manner. One of the referees for this application must be the MSc supervisor as the Department of Graduate Studies Committee must consult with M.Sc. supervisor before deciding on the student's re-admissibility.
