Join us for an online information session November 25, 6–7pm, to learn more about the courses in the Pre-Graduate School Online Program. The session is free, but registration is required.

Prepare for Success in a Canadian Master’s Program

The new Pre-Graduate School Online Program features courses that give you the skills and strategies to choose your best-fit graduate programs, write compelling and effective applications, and succeed once you’re in grad school.

All courses are three weeks long and 100% online. Enjoy an interactive and dynamic experience, get personalized support and feedback, and meet and connect with your peers from around the world.

Who it’s For

These pre-graduate school courses are recommended for students in third-year university and higher, or recent graduates, who plan to apply to a master’s program in Canada.

While you don’t need to provide your grades or transcript, we recommend you have an average of 75% or higher, or equivalent. Students whose first language isn’t English self-assess their proficiency, but should have achieved an IELTS 6.0 or higher, or equivalent.

While the focus of the program is on getting into and succeeding in a Canadian university master’s program, the skills you learn are useful when you’re applying to graduate programs in other countries.
