Admission Requirements

Test Scores:
  • International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 6.5] or Canadian Academic English Language Assessment [min. 70] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 86] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580]
Additional Admission Requirements:
    Students interested in admission into the co-op education option must apply by the end of the first semester of academic study. To be eligible for admission to the co-op option, students must: be registered in the M.A. in European, Russian and Eurasian Studies; have successfully completed, by the start-date of the first work term, the required first-year core classes EURR 5001 Interdisciplinary Seminar in European, Russian and Eurasian Studies and EURR 5010 Research Design and Methodology in European, Russian and Eurasian Studies; be registered full-time in each academic term prior to work term; and be eligible to work in Canada (for off-campus work terms). Meeting the preceding requirements only establishes eligibility for admission to the co-op option - the prevailing job market may limit enrollment in it. Students should also note that hiring priority is given to Canadian citizens for co-op positions under the auspices of the Public Service Commission. Work terms for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies co-op students exist in a variety of public and private sector fields. Every effort will be made to ensure that there are appropriate work opportunities available, but there are no assurances that a co-op position will be found. Students with a high CGPA, enthusiasm, and potential, however, will have a competitive edge in securing co-op employment. Students will be assisted by the Carleton University Co-op Office to find work term positions.
