Admission Requirements

Admission to the M.Ed., the M.A., and the Graduate Certificate requires that students meet the following minimum admission standards:

  • a minimum overall average in the B+ range (76-79% at UBC) in third- and fourth-year courses; or
  • academic standing with at least 12 credits of third- or fourth-year courses in the A- grade range (80% or higher at UBC) in the field of study; or
  • applicants who have a four-year baccalaureate degree or its academic equivalent that does not meet the requirements stated above, but who have had significant formal training and relevant professional experience to offset such deficiencies, may be granted admission on the recommendation of the appropriate department or faculty.

Additionally, the Faculty of Education normally requires that applicants have at least two years of teaching experience. All applicants must submit a statement of intent (approximately 250-400 words) clearly outlining their areas of interest and focus for study with their applications.

Admission procedures can be found at College of Graduate Studies.
