    Applicants are required to have a first-class thesis Master's degree or its equivalent, with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B average) in the last 60 credit hours of study from a university of recognized standing. The identification of a first class Master's degree is based on grades in coursework; evidence of a well written, high quality thesis, and other indicators, such as publications in refereed journals, presentations at scholarly conferences, etc.

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

    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. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.
