International High School

If you’re currently studying outside Canada – or if your most recent academic experience was outside Canada – you can find the relevant country or educational system in the International Admission Requirements section to determine your minimum admission requirements. All applicants are required to present a senior-level/Grade 12 English course for admission consideration. Other prerequisite courses must be presented at the senior/Grade 12 equivalent level. Use our Program Finder to see if there are additional, program-specific requirements for your intended program of study.  

If you are a Canadian who is living and/or studying outside of Canada, please visit our Canadians Abroad page for more information.

Conditional offers of admission will be made based on your previous year’s grades and your in-term/mid-term results, if available. You must submit all required documents by the published document deadline for your program(s) of interest. If you do not qualify on the basis of your interim results, it is unlikely that we will be able to reassess your application when final grades are received; however, if space is available in the program of your choice, we may reconsider your application.
