English Language Proficiency
As English is the primary language of instruction for all programs, all undergraduate applicants to Engineering need an adequate level of English Language Proficiency (ELP) prior to admission, regardless of citizenship status or country of origin.
For students applying from within Canada or from a country/institution where the primary language of instruction is English, the ELP requirement is generally met through proof of a minimum of three years of full-time study in English.
If a student is required to present proof of ELP, they will be notified through their Bear Tracks To Do List.
A comprehensive listing of how applicants can meet the ELP requirement, including required TOEFL and IELTS scores, can be found in the UAlberta Admissions website.

After you've been accepted
So you've been accepted to Engineering at the University of Alberta! Congratulations! What happens next?
Engineering at Alberta registers all students in classes for the common first year. During the end of the school year and into the summer, the Faculty will ask admitted students who have paid their tuition deposit to submit a consent form permitting the Faculty to register them in first-year courses.
After receiving the consent form, the Faculty will register you for your first-year classes for you!
Students are registered together in "cohorts", where at least one other student, or a "block" of students have the same schedule as each other, which can help facilitate students' getting to know each other in the first year.
If you have further questions, please get in touch with us at email@example.com or 780-492-1715.
