Minimum Academic Requirements: International Credentials

The College of Graduate Studies encourages applications from international students who hold a credential comparable to an approved Canadian four-year undergraduate degree and who demonstrate superior academic standing.

Please refer to the Required Grades and Credential Guide, below, for specific requirements by country.

Students who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents must apply for a study permit (student visa) to enter Canada. Applications can be made at any Canadian Consulate or High Commission.

Applicants from a university outside Canada at which English is not the primary language of instruction must meet Language Proficiency Requirements prior to being extended an offer of admission.

Required Grades and Credential Guide

Grades and degree credentials required by UBC vary by country.

The following information is meant as a rough guide to assist international students in estimating their eligibility. It is not an official measure of admissibility to UBC graduate programs.

A formal application for admission (and the required fee) must be submitted for an official evaluation of your academic credentials. The required overall grade is normally calculated from courses taken in the last two years of full-time study.
