The MPlan is a first professional degree at the graduate level; an undergraduate degree in planning is not required for admission.

    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 92] or Michigan English Language Assessment Battery [min. 85] or CanTEST [min. 4.5] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 7]

    English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission.
