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.
