Program Admission

2019 Program Enrolment 

Admission to major and specialist programs will be determined by a student's mark in specific courses. These are limited enrolment programs that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Achieving the marks required does not necessarily guarantee admission to the program in any given year. Requests for admission will be considered in the first program request period only. For detailed program application instructions (see "type 3- with a no indicator") click here

Do not change your program after year 3 if you are required to complete your degree in four years as prerequisites and program requirements will not be waived. 

Due to the limited enrolment nature of this program students are strongly advised to enroll in backup programs.
