English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 100; Written TOEFL - 600; or IELTS – 7.5. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.

Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
Applicants are required to submit two academic reference letters, either through the electronic reference system in the online application or by paper. We prefer students whose background includes at least two of the following: work experience in a field related to community health, a demonstrated academic or research record, or training in a health profession. Please visit the website for complete details.
