Notes on Eligibility

Eligibility for the Master's degree at UBC requires an Honours or Bachelor's degree requiring four years of study with a B+ average in third and fourth year-level course work. *From Quebec's French universities, a three-year Bachelor's degree is acceptable provided the Diplome d'Etudes Collegiales (DEC) has been previously awarded. Theological degrees (i.e., degrees in theology or degrees offered by a bible college, seminary or theological school) may not be acceptable as a basis for admission to graduate studies at the University of British Columbia. Applicants will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
