General Admission Requirements
Admission into the Faculty of Education is based 50 percent on academic achievement and 50 percent on information submitted in the Experience Profile. Select applicants will be contacted to attend an interview which will determine final admission status.
Applicants who have listed more than one program choice on their application must list their choices in the order in which they would like to be considered. Applicants who have applied for more than one program only need to send one copy of their required documents.
Applicants must have at least three full credits or six half-credit undergraduate university courses, with an average of 70% or “B-”, in their chosen teaching subject. At least one full or two half-credit courses must be at the second-year level or above. All courses to be counted toward the teachable subject must be submitted with a final mark no later than November 28, 2008. If an applicant presents more than the required number of courses for the subject area, the subject-specific average will be calculated using the highest grades.
In order to ensure adequate preparation in subjects taught at the junior/intermediate level, preference will be given to applicants who have one or more half-credit undergraduate university courses in three of the following five subjects: math, science, English, geography/history (Canadian geography/history recommended), or fine arts including: music, visual arts, dance or drama.
Junior/intermediate applicants will be scheduled to practice teach in grades 4-8; placements in grades 9 or 10 will be made only under special circumstances.
