Admission to a degree in the graduate programs is granted through the Office of Admissions and Registration, which receives and processes all applications, evaluates credentials, and issues notification letters. Standards under which students are admitted for study in these programs are established and monitored by the departments and Faculties concerned. Acceptance into the graduate program is based on the candidate meeting University admissions requirements and the recommendation of the Faculty Graduate Admission Committee.
Applicants to graduate studies must hold a Bachelor’s degree from a recognized institution of higher learning with an undergraduate cumulative average of at least 80/100 or its equivalent as evaluated by the department the applicant wishes to join.
An applicant may be admitted conditionally if he has undergraduate cumulative (major and general) averages of at least 75/100 or its equivalent as evaluated by the Department the applicant wishes to join.
Language Proficiency Requirement
Applicants to English-track majors, other than UOB graduates, are required to meet the English Language Proficiency Requirement (a minimum of 600 on the paper-based TOEFL, or 100 on the internet-based TOEFL). Applicants, who score in the range 527 - 597 on the paper-based TOEFL, or 71 - 99 on the internet-based TOEFL, are admitted but must complete the English Language courses (ENGL101/ENGL102) during the first year of enrollment in the graduate program.

A French entrance Exam (Test de positionnement) will determine the language level of the applicant. Applicants with FREN102 level may be accepted however they must complete successfully FREN102 within the first semester of enrollment in the graduate program.
