Admission Requirements

Graduates of recognized universities will be considered for admission to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs. The University’s general policy on admission as outlined in Section 2.1 of the General Regulations in the Graduate Calendar must be met. For admission to the Master of Design program, applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in a design discipline, or the equivalent, with at least a B+ standing.

Applicants with a design-related background, but not a professional degree in design, will be required to demonstrate significant links between their academic background and professional experience working with designers in the design development process.

If you are uncertain if your background is right for the Master of Design program please feel free to contact the School. Our Graduate Co-cordinator would be pleased to speak with you. You may also find it interesting to take a look at the background of our current students.

The number of admissions is limited by the availability of graduate space and supervisory personnel. Possession of the minimum admission requirements does not, in itself, guarantee admission. Priority will be given to applications of the highest quality and relevance.
