General Admission Requirements
To be considered for admission as an International Student, you must currently reside outside of Canada and you are not a Canadian citizen. To meet the General Admission Requirements to Lakehead, you will need the following:
- Successful graduation from an academic secondary school program or equivalent (For most countries, the same academic preparation as is required for university entrance in that country is required for consideration. Refer to Admission Requirements by Country.)
- Program-Specific Prerequisite courses completed at the senior level (e.g. Grade 12);
- Equivalent of a minimum 70% overall final average (Canadian)
Note: Meeting the minimum admission requirements is not a guarantee of admission.
Note: Should your academic background not reflect your true potential for success, the Academic Support Access Program acts as an entryway for students whose academic average falls slightly below the required admission average. Applicants are automatically considered for admission to the Academic Support Access Program, subject to program eligibility.
