Application Requirements for Canadian Universities

The application process to Canadian universities will depend on many things such as students’ college selection, course selection, college location, and so on.

However, here you will get the simple steps or you can say common checklist for the Canadian college application process.

These steps actually cover the basic requirements for course admission.  Several Canadian universities may need to submit additional materials which totally depend on your course selection ways.

 A study in Canada required a course application process before that you must also require to research the Canadian universities and courses to which you want to get admission.

Basic Application Requirements for Canadian Universities.

  1. Copy of your Academic Degree.
  2. Minimum Marks (Minimum Education Equivalence).
  3. Statements of Purpose, CV & Letters of Recommendation.
  4. University Transcripts.
  5. English Language Requirements.
  6. GRE or GMAT.

Copy of your Academic Degree.

If you have applied for a Canada student visa for a master in Canada or an undergraduate course in Canada then you have to prove that you are graduated or 12th pass out.

So basically you have to submit your last academic degree copy to get a Canada university admission.

Minimum Marks (Minimum Education Equivalence).

Study in Canada for Indian students at least required a total of 16 years of minimum education after that you can apply for courses in Canada.

If might you plan to study in Canada or get admission to a Canadian university but only complete 3 years of an undergraduate course, then a student has to first pursue the 1 Year postgraduate diploma program later any Indian student can apply for the courses in Canada.

If you completed the bachelor’s degree then you can easily able to find a list of Canadian universities that accept three-year graduates for the master in Canada.

Statements of Purpose, CV & Letters of Recommendation.

Another, important document for the Canadian university admission or university application process is the SOP Statement of purpose and LOR Letter of Recommendation.

University Transcripts.

When students complete their bachelor’s degree or master degree then the student can request the college to give them the transcript of their degree which has been including their marks, overall performance, curriculum, and so on.

To collect degree transcripts students can contact their admin office, in many cases when the student does not complete their final exam they can talk to their admin office for the interim transcript for the foreign university application.

But did not means that final transcripts are not required if a student gets admission to Canada University later you have to submit the final transcripts too.

English Language Requirements.

Well know exam for English language proficiency is TOEFL or IELTS, and we are talking about getting admission to Canada Universities. Therefore IELTS tests are the preferred English language tests.

As per your college selection and course selection IELTS score will vary, however, if we talk about the minimum score then it should be 6.5 overall IELTS band with at least 6 minimum bands in each.

In my opinion, a much higher the score you will get the better for your course admission, now TOEFL general criteria say it should be at least 90 overall with a minimum of 20 in each section.


Students who want to do higher studies in Canada, such as MS engineering in Canada, or MBA in Canada from the top ranking Canada University then you have to score good marks on GRE and for MBA you have to score marks on the GMAT test.

There is not any fixed score has been mentioned by the universities so it’s good to score as much as you can. Or else you can check the previous admission average score list for knowledge purposes.

These are the most basic requirement list for a Canadian university, and as I have mentioned above as well different courses have different requirements.

To check the course application requirement in deep you can also visit the particular college’s official website it differently requires good research and analysis before getting applying to any course.
