An appropriate bachelor's degree with high academic standing (equivalent to at least mid-B or better in final year) from a recognized university. (See the Admission Requirements section of individual departments in this Bulletin for programs which require specified undergraduate disciplines and/or a higher standing.)
A year of professional education for teaching, or the equivalent in pedagogical content, is helpful. At least one year of relevant, successful, professional experience.
A bachelor's degree or other first degree does not necessarily confer eligibility for admission to graduate study at OISE. The university reserves the right to determine whether or not credentials of degree-granting institutions meet the standards for admission to University of Toronto programs of study.
Applicants who hold professionally-oriented or applied degrees, and who wish to pursue a graduate degree in Education, must be prepared for the possibility of taking some academic makeup courses at the undergraduate level before being eligible for consideration for admission to graduate study.
Applicants who graduated five or more years ago but without achieving sufficiently high standing for admission to a graduate program may be considered for admission if a department wishes to pursue non-standard admission and if, since graduation they have done significant intellectual work and/or made a significant professional contribution that can be considered equivalent to a higher academic standing. This contribution and its impact on the profession must be detailed and documented (e.g. publications, research, professional advancement, development of new skills, responsibility, etc.) and presented as part of the application.
