Admission Requirements

Queen’s on-campus BHSc is a direct-entry program, requiring an 80% in 4U (or equivalent) English, 4U biology, 4U chemistry, and any 4U math. Although a minimum cumulative average of 75% (including prerequisite courses) is required for admission consideration, acceptance into the on-campus program will be competitive. That is, it is anticipated that the admission average will be over 90% for the on-campus BHSc.

If you’d like to take a little more time to decide if the program is right for you and perhaps don’t meet the minimum admission requirements, then consider applying for admission to take individual courses from the program as an online student. Successful candidates are admitted as “Non-Degree Interest Students,” and you can take a limited number of individual courses without working towards completing the full BHSc degree. You would also have the option of subsequently progressing into the online degree program, if you wish, based on your performance in specific completed interest courses.

At this time, the on-campus Bachelor of Health Sciences program is unable to accommodate transfer students from other programs at Queen’s or other universities. Queen’s also will not accept applications for dual or second degree students for the on-campus BHSc program, and will only be accepting applications to first year studies at this time. If you have taken more than 6 units (2 courses) at university, you are ineligible for the on-campus BHSc program.
