Step 1 Do You Qualify

Although acceptance into a Graduate Program is based mostly on academic merit, you need to check all requirements before taking the next step.

Pre- requisites

Prerequisite Course Requirements

Before submitting an "online admissions application" please ensure you have successfully completed the following courses.  These prerequisite courses are required for admissions to the BME Graduate Program (or equivalent).

  1. MATH 1210 (Linear Algebra)
  2. MATH 1510 (Calculus 01)
  3. PHYS 1050 (Physics 01)
Equivalent Prerequisite Courses

Courses at other institutions may have other course numbers and should be confirmed for equivalency with the professor who asks you to submit an online admissions application.

In the case in which a student meets general admissions criteria but lacks any of the prerequisite courses the student must complete those courses before a "Recommendation for Acceptance" can be made by the BME Department.

1.  Canadian / Canadian Residents

  1. Students, already in Winnipeg, may enroll in the required prerequisite courses through the Univ. of Manitoba's Extended Education Department as  "Special Student Status"
  2. Please contact Extended Education directly for admissions into their program https://umanitoba.ca/extended-education/pathways-to-degree-studies/general-studies   

2.    International

  1. Unfortunately, we cannot "recommend admissions" without the qualifying prerequisite courses.
  2. International Students are urged to enroll-in prerequisite courses in their home-countries.

 

Bachelor's & Terminal Degrees

4-Year's Bachelor's Degree

All applicants must hold, at least, a 4-Bachelor's degree OR equivalent from an accredited program at a recognized  post-secondary institution.   Individual Research Groups and Programs may require additional degrees or credentials, prerequisites, and/or more specific degree requirements.  Please confirm other requirements with the professor with whom you wish to conduct research.

1.  Minimum degree requirement:  4-year Bachelor's degree

2.  Degree Background:  Usually, Bachelor's and Master's degrees are expected to be from backgrounds in Engineering, Medicine/Medical Sciences, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Computer Science, etc. (e.g. a B.Sc. or M.Sc. or equivalent), please contact the Academic Advisor (professor) who has offered you tentative acceptance as to whether your degree meets his / her expectations.

3.  ND, HND, Post-Graduate Diploma (PGD), 3-Year Bachelor's Degree:

  1. ND (National Diploma):   
    • The National Diploma will generally exempt a student from the first 2-years of study in a 4-year bachelor's degree program.  This definition may vary if the N.Dip. depending on where the N.Dip was earned
    • The Faculty of Graduate Studies reviews and determines the acceptability and status of the N.Dip.
  2. HND (Higher National Diploma):   The attainment level is one above that of a Higher National Certificate (HNC) and one below that of a Bachelor's degree.  It is usual for HNDs to cover roughly the same area as the first two levels of a bachelor's degree.
  3. Post-Graduate Diplomas (PGD):  
    • At minimum, a Bachelor's Degree is required along WITH a Post-Graduate Diploma.
    • A Post-Graduate Diploma is NOT CONSIDERED a Master's Degree
  4. 3-Year Bachelor's Degree:   In most cases, students who have earned a 3-years Bachelor's Degree must also successfully complete an additional
    • 1-year M.Sc. Program or
    • * 1-year Honours Program or
    • * Successfully completed a number of  A-Level Examinations (to be determined upon application review)

*Qualification of extra year program:   The Honours Program or A-Level Examinations are reviewed by the Faculty of Graduate Studies to verify minimum acceptance.

Transcripts:  Transcripts of the extra program (M.Sc., Honours, or A-Level) must be submitted to review your admissions application.

 

Terminal Degrees

Terminal Degrees are advance degrees awarded to those whose program involved only coursework.  No research paper was submitted.

Usually, at the University of Manitoba BME Graduate Program, you would need to begin your graduate studies at the "Master of Science" level.

GRE & WES

GRE (Graduate Record Exam) Requirements

BME does not require a GRE scores.

 

WES (World Education System)

This university does not recognize WES evaluations.

Information from WES cannot be used for admissions into the BME graduate program.

 

GPA

GPA (Grade Point Average)

While the University has a minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 for graduate studies, students applying to the BME program are expected to have a GPA of 3.6 or greater calculated.

1. Calculating GPA:   https://umanitoba.ca/graduate-studies/graduate-student-admissions/requirements/international-graduate-student-requirements#international-gpa-calculations

GPA Assessments:

2.  The Department does not calculate GPAs in advance of tentative acceptance from a professor in BME.  The request must come directly from the professor, not from the applicant. 

Desirable GPAs are usually first-class or second-class (division 1) honours.

3. How GPA is calculated:

  • Canadian / U.S. Transcripts:  We use the last 60 credit-hours to calculate GPA
  • International Transcripts:  We use the last 2-years of study to calculate GPA.  If a student has a Master's degree it is considered 1-year.

4.  Grade Sheets:

  • What is a "Grade Sheets" -- A Grade Sheet is an official document from the issuing institution informing other institutions how GPA is calculated at that university and the value of their grades
  • Upon the receipt of "Official Transcripts" we will calculate the Student's GPA using the "Grade Sheets" provided by the issuing institution

5.  Grades earned after a grade assessment: 

  • In cases where grades are issued after the initial assessment, the University of Manitoba will re-calculate the Admissions and Award GPAs.
  • An official "Offer of Admissions" may not be issued to those with low GPAs either before or after the re-calculations of grades.
