Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Application Deadline

Applications for the first intake in January 2019 will be accepted soon.

Visit our Graduate Admissions Toolkit for more information about applying.

Admission Requirements

An honours degree in Computer Science or a closely related area that includes courses in data structure, object-oriented language, programming, and software engineering.

A final year average of at least B+ is usually required, along with a cumulative average of at least B+ in all computer science courses.

Application Checklist

After you have submitted your OUAC application, paid the non-refundable application fee, and Laurier has received your application, you'll receive an email from fgps@wlu.ca advising you to upload the additional required documentation to Laurier’s Online Viewing system.

An application for admission to our Master of Computer Science program must include:

  • The Application Summary, which is generated after you complete your OUAC application (log back in to OUAC to retrieve it).
  • Transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work.
  • A completed statement of intent.
  • A resumé of your academic and work experience. Include a history of your publication and scholarly paper activity and any other information you feel will interest the admissions committee.
  • Completed reference forms. Two academic references are required. Note: Reference forms are electronically submitted to Laurier by the referee and do not need to be uploaded.

Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential to graduate studies at Laurier. Applicants whose language of instruction during their previous postsecondary education was not in English must submit evidence of proficiency in English. If applicable, results from accepted testing services must be uploaded to Laurier’s Online Viewing system.
