Canada

Canada

With Nova Scotia and the other Maritime Provinces providing sanctuary to Scotland's historic highland clearance, it is no surprise that Canada now boasts a very strong Scottish cultural identity.

Canadian students have attended the University of Glasgow since 1796. Many Glasgow academics have had strong links with Canada, including James McGill, founder of McGill University, who studied at our University in the 1750s.

There are currently 100 degree-seeking students from Canada at Glasgow, studying at all levels and across all colleges. In addition, we regularly welcome Canadian students to our campus via our exchange and study abroad programmes.

Entry Requirements

Undergraduate

We accept high school leaving qualifications from every province and territory. The normal minimum requirement is 5 or 6 subjects from grade 12 or CEGEP at B or better, or 80% average (dependent on grading system), including key subjects where required. Certain schools require a higher standard.

International Baccalaureate

Applications with 34-36 points on the full diploma will be considered for direct admission to most schools. Please note that there are certain exceptions.

SATs and APs are also accepted (see US entry requirements).

Postgraduate

To be considered for direct admission to one of Glasgow's taught Masters degrees, applicants should hold an undergraduate four year bachelor degree, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 from an accredited university or college in the USA or Canada. Applicants should also have high grades in relevant individual subjects.

Representatives

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
