Admission Procedure in Canada Colleges
Application Form Each programmed requires that you fill out their specific applications. By now, most colleges have made their application available on-line. If you choose not to download the application, you can call or write to the institution to have one mailed to you. Be sure that your application is impeccably neat. A messily filled out form reflects badly on you. You should type the various pieces of personal information on the page rather than writing them by hand.
Application Fee When you apply to a university abroad you have to attach along with the application form other documentation like academic certificates, extra curricular activities, recommendation letter, grade transcripts, essays, statement of purpose, etc. To process all these documents the university asks for an application fee, which ranges between $50-150. You can send this money through a dollar draft.
The Essay Most institutes will require you to submit an essay with your application. The essay is your opportunity to present a clear picture of yourself, providing the admissions committee with a good idea of your motivation, ability, and written communication skills, you should articulate how attributes of the school align with your abilities and interests. This will demonstrate that you have thoroughly researched their offerings and compared them to your interests.Remember that the admissions committee does not know you. Information about you that is obvious to you or your friends will not be obvious to admissions professionals.
Letters of Recommendation Because colleges want to receive a consistent overall impression of the candidates they are considering, references are important in confirming or augmenting your credentials, strengths, and aspirations. When selecting individuals to write recommendations on your behalf, choose a good cross-section of people who can vouch for your dependability and who know about your plans for study. These people may include college principal, employers, colleagues, associates or peers.
Resume Most applications ask you to include your resume or a summary of your work history. Most institutes seriously consider work history when making admissions decisions. Include information about any papers or articles you have published, awards, membership in professional societies, volunteer work, or anything else that can give an admissions committee a clear picture of you.
Standardized Test Scores These include GMAT, GRE, SAT, TOEFL, IELTS.
Your scores in these tests are considered as predictors of academic performance in future years of study. Some schools require minimum scores. Many schools will consider your best score rather than your most recent score, but you should check with the individual school regarding their policy on multiple scores.
Grade Transcripts Colleges require that you provide your undergraduate transcript along with your application. These are extended mark sheets that not only reflect your marks but also give extra information on the medium of instruction, grading system, number of hours per lecture, etc. You can apply for a grade transcript to the college you went to. Be sure that you request that your institution sends it in plenty of time to meet the application deadline.
