Students who complete one of the above master's certificates may "ladder up" into a subsequent Master of Education degree program. Students will be allowed to concurrently hold a master's certificate and a master's degree.


All applicants should review the admission standards on the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. In addition, the Faculty of Education requires the following:

  • the applicant must have a four-year degree applicable to the program (normally a BEd, BHRD, or BAEd, or equivalent);
  • at least two years of teaching or other relevant professional experience.

Admission is always subject to availability of space and supervision.
