Language Requirements

Applicants whose first language is not English must submit official test results with acceptable scores. Refer to the Mount’s Graduate Language Admission Requirements for more information.
The Mount offers a University Bridging Program (UBP) for students who come close to meeting our language requirements but require minimal further study. The UBP allows students to study one academic course part-time in their first semester while completing a part-time academic ESL program at the Mount. Upon successful completion of the UBP and their academic course, students pursue full-time studies the following semester with no further language study.

Students who require extensive English language upgrading are referred to one of our private language school partners. The Mount maintains partnerships with Apex Language and Career College (ALCC), Canadian Language Learning College (CLLC), East Coast School of Languages (ECSL) and International Language Institute (ILI).

Transfer Credits

If you have completed graduate courses from a recognized university within the last five years that have not been applied towards a previous graduate degree, you may request that they be considered for possible transfer credit. Please provide a written request with your application and include the number, title, and description for each course.  Confirmation from the institution that the courses are at the graduate level is required if this is not evident on your transcript. 

Transfer credits will be assessed by the academic department to which you are applying. A maximum of 2.0 units of graduate level courses can be transferred into a Mount graduate program. More information regarding transfer credits at the graduate level can be found in the Graduate Academic Calendar.
