International Admission Requirements by Country

Applicants educated outside of Ontario must submit evidence of education equivalent to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six Grade 12 U or M courses. Please note: Ryerson reserves the right to be the final arbiter of what will be accepted on an equivalency basis.

It is essential that the required subject prerequisites and grades for specific programs form part of an applicant’s academic background, especially in the last two years of secondary and/or post-secondary studies. Visit our PDF filePrerequisite Subjects by Faculty for further details.

An applicant’s complete academic record, including secondary school as well as all post-secondary studies (e.g. college, university, or other post-secondary institutions) will be reviewed and considered as part of the competitive selection process.

Please note that the number of applicants greatly exceeds the number of spaces available in each program and possession of the minimum requirements in no way guarantees acceptance. Due to competition, candidates may be required to present averages/grades above the minimum.
