Here, students from more than 100 countries work together with professors and researchers as they contribute to our world in more than 100 disciplines.
Senior Middle School Graduation Certificate is required for admission to all programs. If you have completed more than 18 credit units of transferable credit units from an accredited post-secondary institution, your admission will be based on your post‑secondary studies.
You may apply for admission in the year you will graduate if you submit your transcript from the previous year and a list of courses you are currently completing, as well as Hui Kao (or Academic Proficiency Test 学业水平测试) results if applicable. Early (Conditional) admission may be granted in these circumstances.
The University of Saskatchewan considers courses from accredited institutions around the world for transfer credit. Generally, credit is awarded on a course-by-course basis for courses equivalent to those taught at the University of Saskatchewan.

In addition to the general requirement, you must present required subjects with your high school transcript and/or Hui Kao results (or Academic Proficiency Test 学业水平测试) if applicable and have achieved a competitive average for your college of choice.
