General Admissions Requirements

Candidates must satisfy the general requirements for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Enrollment in the School is limited. In general, successful applicants should have attained at least a “B+” standing in their previous university work - undergraduate degree, honours or equivalent, required.

Admission is based on an assessment of all documents as outlined in the Application Procedure.


Applicants wishing to receive exemption from a required course should include course outlines for those courses previously taken which they consider to be equivalent to Dalhousie HESA courses. Where it is determined at time of admission that a student has the equivalent of a required course but is not granted advanced placement, an exemption may be permitted, so that another course is substituted for the required course.
