Applying for Admission

In order to be admitted to the master’s program, a student must meet the general admission requirements of the university.

Applicants are expected to hold a four-year honours bachelors degree, or equivalent, from an approved university.  Applicants should have a minimum B+ standing or equivalent.  An applicant who does not meet these requirements may still apply for admission as a qualifying student.

Applications are reviewed by the Graduate Program Committee, which considers all prior university grades, a writing sample, and letters of reference.

Application Forms: web-based application

Application Deadlines: January 15 of the admission year is the deadline for first consideration. Application to our program remains open, with scholarship award packages, until posted otherwise. We encourage all interested students to apply.

English Proficiency Requirements (link)
Proficiency in English usage, both written and oral, is essential to pursue graduate studies at Laurier. Applicants whose language of instruction during the undergraduate degree was other than English must furnish evidence of proficiency in English, prior to admission.
