Applying from Non-Ontario Canadian Secondary School

The BMSc Program is a "second-entry" program.  Students are not admitted directly into the BMSc Program in Year 1 - they will apply for admission to the BMSc Program when entering Year 3. Students interested in the BMSc Program (i.e. in the modules leading to BMSc degrees) will usually register in Medical Sciences First Entry in the Faculty of Science in Years 1 (Medical Sciences 1) and 2 (Medical Sciences 2). The Medical Sciences stream provides assured admission to the BMSc Program in Year 3, if certain academic conditions are satisfied.

Students applying to Western from a Canadian secondary school outside of Ontario must obtain a minimum 80% average, as calculated by Western, and have the pre-requisites for Medical Sciences to be considered for admission to first year on the basis of a Grade 12 Diploma.

Admission to Western in first year is competitive and as such, having the minimum requirements should not be viewed as a guarantee of admission.

A detailed outline of the admission pre-requisites for Canadian secondary school students are listed below. The National Secondary School Admission Requirements (pages 14-19) also provides a listing of required and recommended courses for admission to Medical Sciences and Science. 

Please select the province or territory where you attended high school:
