General Requirements for all Programs

GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education)/IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) O-Levels and GCE (General Certificate of Education) A-Levels are required for admission to all programs. Applicants must present five acceptable O-Level subjects and at least two acceptable A-Level subjects.

The five O-Level subjects must in all cases include Mathematics and a first-language literature/ composition course. 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. If admitted, you will be required to present your original documents to the International Admissions Office upon arrival.

Early Admission

You may apply for admission in the year you will be sitting for A-Level final examinations if you submit at least five suitable O-Level results and predicted A-Level results.

AS-Level Admission

Alternatively, if you do not intend to sit for any A-Level exams, you may be considered for admission if you have completed four acceptable Advanced Subsidiary Level subjects. Generally, two AS-Level subjects are considered equivalent to one GCE A-Level subject. Please contact the admissions office for more information.

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.

You may be eligible to receive transfer credit towards a degree for A-Level subjects completed with a grade of at least C. To qualify, you must provide a course syllabus to the admissions office for review.

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.
