When to apply to a Canadian university
Approach the university of your choice (it would be preferable to approach more than one) before the selection process to ensure you have the required prerequisites for entry. Consider writing to the faculty head(s), if you have not yet identified a potential supervisor. An indication from a faculty member that, if accepted, that individual would supervise the student's work, would support the application for the scholarship.
There is no need to apply to the universities before applying for the Oxford-Canada scholarship but you should know when the universities open and close their applications periods (most Canadian universities open applications after the scholarship applications have closed).
Oxford-Canada scholars are selected based on:
- academic excellence
- leadership potential, as demonstrated through extra-curricular involvement
Selection of Oxford-Canada Scholars is made without regard to gender, gender identity, marital status, sexual orientation, race, ethnic origin, colour, religion, social background, caste, or disability.
