English Language Requirements

When an applicant's first language is other than English, consideration for admission includes establishing an acceptable level of language proficiency by completing a language proficiency test. (Graduate Studies does not require language tests from applicants who have completed two years or more at an accredited university in a country (or institution) where English is the official language of instruction.)

Accommodations for Graduate Students

There is a distinction between Academic Accommodations and Workplace Accommodations that you should be aware of. You may require one or both, as a graduate student at York University, and they have different administrative pathways. The latter is relevant only to students who hold, or expect to hold, CUPE 3903 work assignments as part of their funding package.

For both sorts of accommodation, you may want to initiate a conversation with your Graduate Program Director (GPD), who can be a conduit to the relevant offices, and a source of support for tailored planning of your academic and work pathway through your degree. If you are not comfortable approaching your Graduate Program Director, you can find further information on the Faculty of Graduate Studies website.
