After-Degree Program

This two-year (60 credit hour) program is intended for students who already hold an undergraduate degree, which includes sufficient course work in two teachable areas. Students who have not completed the necessary prerequisites may need to take additional courses in order to be eligible to apply. After-Degree applicants must select one of the following streams: Elementary (focuses on teaching Kindergarten to Grade 8), or Senior Years (focuses on teaching Grades 9 to 12). Students cannot change streams once they have applied.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the After-Degree program is based on academic performance, relevant volunteer or work experience, and the number of available spaces in the program. To be eligible to apply, applicants must have:

  • a recognized undergraduate university degree (requirements must be completed by August, 2024)
  • teaching area course work completed by August, 2024
  • relevant experience with age appropriate groups
  • a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on courses completed at the point of application (applicants will need an average well above this minimum in order to be competitive in the selection process)

Information Booklet

Each year, the Faculty of Education produces an information booklet for prospective applicants to the After Degree Program. This booklet includes detailed information on eligibility requirements, course prerequisites, application procedures, and assessment criteria. It is expected that all applicants have read and understood the information contained in this booklet prior to submitting an application for admission. This booklet is updated annually.

NOTE to students whose first degree is from an institution other than UW: Transcripts from other universities are evaluated by the Admissions Office, not the Faculty of Education. The Admissions Office is not able to meet individually with prospective students. Evaluations will only be undertaken once a student has applied.
