    Applicants are required to have a first-class thesis Master's degree or its equivalent, with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.7 (A- average) in the last 60 credit hours of study from a university of recognized standing. Eligible students who have completed a research Master's will be enrolled in the two year PhD program. Students who have completed a non-thesis Master's program may be eligible for the three year PhD program. A supervisor must be in place prior to acceptance into the program.

    Test Scores:
    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 92] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 7] or Canadian Academic English Language Assessment [min. 70] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580] 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.
