Full-time and Part-time Admission Requirements

Application Process

Start Your Application

To complete your application, you will need to provide:

A) GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) – A minimum score of 600 is required to apply for the Sprott PhD.

B) English Proficiency Test

If your first language is not English, you can prove your language proficiency by presenting official certification (transcripts) that you have completed an undergraduate or graduate degree within the past three years in a university in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom or any country in which the primary language is English, where the language of instruction in the relevant educational institution was English, and the language of instruction in their most recently completed undergraduate or graduate degree was English.

Note: Letters from your universities stating the medium of instruction is English are not acceptable.

Otherwise, you will be required to meet the minimum language admission requirements by submitting your test score in either the CAEL, TOEFL, IELTS or PTE English proficiency tests. Details on minimum test score requirements can be found here:

C) References

D) Academic Transcripts
