Information from University of Manitoba
Graduate-level admission (Master) is competitive. Completion of a 4 year undergraduate program is required prior to the start of a graduate level exchange. Students who completed a three-year undergraduate program are not eligible for the Graduate-level admission. They are eligible to apply for the undergraduate program to take courses at 1000 to 4000 level (highest). Minimum GPA of 3.0 (B or equivalent) in the last two full years of study is also required for graduate studies and students may need to meet additional criteria.
English Language Proficiency Requirements: Students are required to provide one of English Language Test Proficiency results at the time of application. Students can request for an English Language requirement waiver, instead of the test but there is no guarantee that it will be granted.
