Pre-Masters & Masters Degrees
Do you wish to improve your language skills and subject knowledge before taking a Masters Degree in Canada? You can take a Pre-Masters course beforehand to make sure you are completely ready for your full Masters.
This is an ideal option if you wish to study a Masters course that is not directly related to what you studied at undergraduate level.
Masters Degrees in Canada take 1-2 years to complete and can be either academic or professional, depending on your chosen career path. Some Canadian universities will also allow students to ‘fast track’ their studies so they can complete their Masters degree as quickly as possible.

Although most Canadian universities generally have high entry requirements for postgraduate study, they can be flexible and generally ask for a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher.
