International Students

The University of Lethbridge is Canada’s destination for all who seek a comprehensive, liberal education–based university that promotes a diverse and inclusive environment and inspires research-informed teaching and learning, creative discovery, scholarship, professional endeavour, experiential opportunities, and community engagement.

Applications for admission to undergraduate programs are welcomed from Canadian and international applicants for fall term (commencing September) and winter term (commencing January). In addition to the fall and winter terms, many of our graduate programs also accept applications for admission for the summer term (commencing May). The University of Lethbridge imposes no admission limitations on the basis of provincial residence or citizenship.

Minimum Academic Requirements
Applicants from other countries must present qualifications comparable to those of Canadian applicants. 

  • Applicants who are applying to a graduate certificate, diploma, or master’s programs should note the admission requirements for the country in which their undergraduate study was completed.

Language Requirements
English is the primary language of instruction and communication at the University of Lethbridge. Prior to registration, all students must demonstrate English language proficiency sufficient to meet the demands of classroom instruction, written assignments, and participation in tutorials and discussions, regardless of their citizenship status or country of origin.
