Requirements for Canadian Students

We accept a wide range of qualifications for entry on to undergraduate degrees. For Canadian high school qualifications we typically look for:

  • Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) 75% from 6 grade 12 U, U/C or M courses.
  • British Columbia Certificate of Graduation AAABB-AABBB from 5 grade 12 courses.
  • We also recognise the High School Diploma from other provinces including: Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick. We look for strong performance in grade 12 subjects, and the Diplome d'Etudes Collegiales (DEC) from Quebec.

We do consider each application on a case by case basis, so the above should be used as a guideline. We also accept A-Levels, the International Baccalaureate, the US schooling system, and many more international high school qualifications. Entry requirements are shown on the webpage for each undergraduate programme in the "Entry requirements" section. If you are not sure if you meet the entry requirements for undergraduate study, e-mail us, clearly stating: your country; the name of your school or college; the name of the qualification you are taking / have taken; your grade / marks (if appropriate); and the degree at Sussex you would like to apply for.
