What are the requirements for program admission?
- Completion of a four-year honours undergraduate university (Bachelor’s) degree (or equivalent) and a B+ average in the final year of undergraduate study. On a percentage scale, the B+ average equates to a 75 to 79% (8.5/12.0 on the McMaster grade point average scale)
- Applicants whose native language is not English must provide evidence of English proficiency. This can include an official copy of your TOEFL score, or other evidence. A minimum TOEFL (iBT) score of 92 (580 on the paper-based TOEFL test, or 237 on the computer-based TOEFL test) is needed for the Faculty of Health Sciences. Students taking the IELTS are required to achieve a minimum score of 6.5, with a minimum score of 5.5 in each category.
- Note that meeting the minimum admissions requirements does not guarantee admission into the GDCE. Limited space will be available in the GDCE courses and the admissions process will be competitive.
