Exigences linguistiques

English-Language Proficiency Requirements 

Each student granted admission to Western University must be proficient in spoken and written English. All students applying for undergraduate admission whose first language is not English will be required to provide acceptable proof of English-language proficiency. You are encouraged to write a test at the earliest possible date, and at the latest, before March 2016. Scores for any test written before January 1, 2014, may not be accepted.

You may be considered for an English-proficiency exemption if you studied for three, full-time years in a Ministry-approved high school in Ontario or other Canadian provinces, and  successfully completed Grade 12 English, ENG4U or its equivalent. This exemption does not apply to Nursing programs.

Applicants from other countries who have a total of three years of formal education in an English-speaking school system where English is the primary language and language of instruction, may be considered for an exemption on an individual basis. The Admissions Committee will consider all previous and current academic work and all documentation submitted in support of an application for an exemption.

The Undergraduate Admissions Office may require you to write a test of English proficiency. At the discretion of the University, you may be asked to present further evidence of English proficiency if your English proficiency score does not match your academic English prerequisite achievement.

Additional details on acceptable proof of English proficiency can be found on our website at:

Note: English-language proficiency requirements for admission to Undergraduate Nursing programs are different than the requirements for other programs at Western. For further information, please refer to:


Offres d'admission pour les élèves du secondaire de l'Ontario

Basic Requirements for Admission: Ontario Grade 12 Curriculum Requirements

If you currently attend an Ontario high school, you must successfully complete an Ontario Secondary School Diploma, including the following to be considered for admission:

  • Six 4U/M courses (excluding co-op)
  • 4U English (ENG4U)
  • Program prerequisites as specified by Western
  • An admission average, including all program prerequisite courses, as specified by Western

Failed and Repeated Courses

If a course was taken more than once, the highest reported successful grade in the course will be used in the calculation.

Timing and Process for Admission Decisions

Western will extend a number of early conditional offers, scholarship information and offers of residence to students with an outstanding academic record in their last two years of high school. These early offers will take many factors into consideration, including marks in prior grades, and prior and interim marks in 4U/M courses. You must either complete or be enrolled in prerequisite courses for the programs you apply to in order to be considered. Offers are extended from December until the final round of offers in May.

All applicants will be given full consideration each time offers are extended throughout the cycle. Information pertaining to special circumstances adversely affecting an applicant's grades, as well as extracurricular activities and contributions to citizenship, will be taken into account for students on, or near, the required admission average for offers extended in May.

All offers are conditional upon successfully completing the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and maintaining a minimum final average in six 4U/M courses (excluding co-op), including all prerequisite courses, as stipulated in the offer of admission.

Alternative Offers

Western's Main Campus does not have automatic alternative offers of admission. If you wish to be considered for more than one program, list each program as a separate choice on your OUAC application.

One-year deferrals of admission may be granted to high school applicants. A written request must be sent to the Admissions Office that outlines the reasons for deferral. Note: A deferral will not be granted to those students who will be studying at another postsecondary institution.

The Special Consideration Profile is available for students who may have had extenuating circumstances that led to academic difficulty and that may put them marginally below the university's minimum admissions requirement. Extenuating circumstances may include disability, personal illness, financial circumstances, required employment, family illnesses, or other personal or family matters. Deadline: March 1.

The Extraordinary Extracurricular and Contributions to Citizenship Profile is an optional profile that allows you to communicate your commitment to extracurricular activities and active citizenship through an ongoing contribution to school and community life. If you feel your average will fall marginally below the university's minimum admission requirements, and you have made significant contributions, you may submit a profile. Deadline: March 1.
