*Students who are missing an eligible mathematics or laboratory science course, who apply for admission to a program that does not require completion of these courses, will be considered for general admission. In this case, an eligible course in subject groups 1 to 4 may be used to substitute the missing course. Students who are missing eligible courses in two subject areas should contact international_registrar@mun.ca.


General Admission Criteria

Completion of the Certificate of Secondary Education with a minimum grade of C in the required subject areas and the Advanced Certificate of Education with at least two subjects with a minimum grade of C.

Admission to some programs is competitive for a limited number of spaces. A higher admission average and/or supplementary information may be required as part of the faculty-specific admissions. For further details, refer to the supplementary application forms and documents page.


Additional Notes

Applied Advanced Level subjects are not an ideal preparation for our programs. General Paper, General Studies, Critical Thinking, Thinking Skills, and Key Skills subjects are not acceptable.

Completion of A level subject examinations with minimum scores may qualify accepted applicants for course-based transfer credit. Refer to the Office of the Registrar's transfer credit policies for further details.
