Considering York

The Faculty of Graduate Studies provides support for international graduate students who have joined York to pursue a graduate degree. In close association with York International, we strive to enrich the educational experiences of international graduate students, including those who are coming to York University as exchange and/or visiting students. Apart from offering various academic and financial support necessary to smooth out the transition of international students, FGS also seeks to ensure that international students succeed in their academic endeavours.

Admission requirements set by the Faculty of Graduate Studies are applicable to both domestic and international applicants. Prospective international students should consult with their graduate program any additional requirements including English language proficiency.

If your first language is not English, you must show you have an acceptable level of English by completing a language proficiency test.
