Applying for a second degree
Any student wishing to complete a second or sequential degree in a module that leads to a BMSc degree must meet the admission requirements for entry into Year 3 of the BMSc Program. Students must consult the Academic Counselling Office in WSC 140 to discuss their eligibility.
Students who have already completed a BMSc degree containing one of the "capstone courses" (e.g. 4000-level research project/undergraduate thesis and/or Medical Sciences 4900F/G) and are wishing to pursue a second BMSc degree should be aware that priority for registration in Year 4 of an Honors Specialization module will usually be given to students completing their first BMSc degree. If Year 4 of an Honors Specialization does not fill with students completing their first BMSc degree, students pursuing a second BMSc degree will be admitted, provided they satisfy the requirements for admission. See the Modules Offered in the BMSc Program for details about the courses/averages needed to apply to Year 4 of Honors Specialization modules.
- Students must apply for permission to pursue a second degree at the same level or higher than the first degree.
- Consult the Academic Counselling Office in WSC 140 for information about completing a BMSc degree as a second degree.
- See the information about completing second degrees in the Academic Calendar
