Admissions Requirements for Full-Time Programs

Interested in our full-time programs? Click each program title to read about its admissions requirements.

Each program offered by Michener has a fixed size, reflecting labour market demand and clinical education spaces. Therefore enrolment in programs is limited and admission can be very competitive. Selection of applicants may be based on a combination of academic grades, interview mark and other selection criteria. For some programs, a rolling admission process may apply.

To ensure you receive equal consideration in the admission process, your application must be received by the application deadline. This is particularly important for programs which are oversubscribed, since Michener receives many more qualified applicants than there are available spaces.

Specific health requirements and a vulnerable sector check are mandatory for all Michener students. Any associated costs are the responsibility of the student. For more detailed information on specific requirements please see the Health Services & Requirements page.
