Admission requirements for Health, Wellness and Sciences programs

It is the student’s responsibility to complete and submit all records and documents as requested by the program area. These documents are required prior to the start of registration in order to ensure your placement and to allow participation in clinical and field placement facilities. The college assumes no responsibility for these matters and students should be aware that we are unable to refund tuition in the event that access to a placement is denied.

International students are successful in co-ops too!

Many international students choose to study at Georgian College because we have a long history of delivering work-integrated learning. All of Georgian’s co-op programs require students – including international students – to complete successful co-op work terms in order to graduate. What this means is that a student in a three year co-op program actually will have completed two years of academic study along with one year work experience when they graduate. Having the opportunity to gain industry-related work experience often leads to better opportunities upon completion of the program.

Accommodation


Georgian offers a variety of housing options to students – from on-campus residences (Barrie, Orillia and Owen Sound campuses) to off-campus apartment buildings, room and board, and houses to rent or share.
  • If you choose to live on-campus, you’ll have many opportunities to get involved in your college community.
  • If you’re looking for off-campus housing, they have information for renters and landlords who are looking to find or promote accommodations for students. They have also included a number of resources to help you protect yourself.
  • If you haven’t got all the answer of  your questions, please contact us so that we may answer any questions you or your family may have.
