International Students

Since English is the language of instruction at Acadia, your student must be able to communicate competently in English both orally and in writing. If their first language is not English, they may be required to present their TOEFL, IELTS, CAEL or PTE Academic scores.

If your student does not meet our English requirements but is academically admissible, they may receive an offer of admission allowing them to begin their degree program upon successful completion of our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program. For more information visit the English Language Centre.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

When your student applies to Acadia, they'll be automatically considered for grade-based entrance scholarships.
