The University offers many specialized services for international students coming from Canada and abroad including orientation, social events, festivals, advising, and workshops to further your academic, personal, and career goals.

International students have become an increasingly integral part of Canada’s immigration strategy as a result of ongoing changes to federal regulations aimed at recruiting more highly skilled newcomers to the country. Almost 240,000 international students were studying in Canada in 2011, according to Citizenship and Immigration Canada data cited in a 2012 report by the Canadian Bureau for International Education; about half of these were enrolled in universities. The number of foreign students studying in Canada at all levels of education has been growing more quickly in recent years. The year-over-year increase averaged 11.5 percent from 2008 to 2011, up from an average of 4.3 percent from 2001 to 2008, according to CIC.

There is no centralized application process in Canada, and each university has its own policy regarding admission requirements. Typically, applicants are selected on the basis of previous academic achievement and/or demonstrated experience. To apply for graduate study in Canada, you’ll need to fill in an application form online, submit your qualifications and transcripts, show proof of proficiency in English or French (depending on the program you’re applying for), obtain letters of recommendation and perhaps submit a résumé. The admission process can take up to 9 months, so it’s a good idea to get an application in early.

Many schools offer graduate studies in addition to undergraduate education. A graduate degree is an advanced degree such as a Master’s or PhD, with the general requirement of earning a previous undergraduate degree. Some schools specialize in graduate studies and are internationally known in certain fields. In Canada the Canadian Association of Graduate Studies (CAGS) represents the various Schools and Faculties of Graduate Studies. Its mandate is to promote graduate education and research in Canada. In addition to an annual conference the association prepares briefs on issues related to graduate studies including supervision, funding, and professional development.

The course-based master's degree often has a professional orientation. It is normally completed after one year and may include a professional internship. Generally speaking, these programs do not lead to studies at the doctoral level. The research-based master's degree is normally completed after 2 years, although certain types of research may require a longer tenure. Graduate students often work as teaching or research assistants. Various schools in Canada have different policies in terms of how much funding is available. This funding may also be different within a school in each of the disciplines. Most students try to secure funding in some form before final admission to their graduate program.
