Admission Requirements

Prerequisites:*

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

    Candidates for admission must hold at least a four-year honours or honours-equivalent degree (which includes the completion of an independent research project) in kinesiology or a related discipline with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 (B+ average) in the last two years of study from a university of recognized standing. Qualifying work may be required of applicants whose background for advanced studies in Health Promotion, Kinesiology, or Leisure Studies is judged deficient. Applicants are also required to have completed a research methods course, and an introductory statistics course with a final grade of 'B' or better.

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