General Requirements for all Programs

Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) and Hong Kong Advanced Level Examinations (HKALE) are required for admission to all programs. Applicants must present five acceptable HKCEE subjects with grades of C or higher and at least two acceptable HKALE subjects with grades of D or higher. The HKCEE subjects must in all cases include English Language (Syllabus B) and Mathematics. 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.

Early Admission

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. Conditional admission may be granted in these circumstances.

Transfer Credit

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. When you apply for admission we will review all education history for admission and transfer credit. Your year of study and program requirements are determined by each college.

College-Specific Requirements

In addition to the general requirement, you must present required subjects and have achieved a competitive average for your college of choice.

Please Note:  All transcripts are reviewed on a case by case basis.  Grades listed below are a guideline for admission.
