International Baccalaureate

Candidates must be completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma, with the following required courses:

  • Mathematics (Recommended at the Higher Level. Math Studies is not acceptable)
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • English

While the Committee accepts Standard Level (SL) courses, additional consideration is given for prerequisite courses completed at the Higher Level (HL). Additional points awarded for Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay are not considered by the Admissions Committee.

Although most programs require higher scores, applicants must have a minimum predicted score of at least 30 with a minimum score of 4 in prerequisite subjects, in order to be considered for admission. Please note that the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering does not grant advanced standing credit for courses completed in the IB Diploma program.

Please visit English Language Requirements to evaluate if you are required to present proof of English Facility. If you do not meet the English Language Requirements at the time of admission or you are worried that your test score will not meet our minimum requirements, you may want to consider applying for the International Foundation Program (IFP).

Submission of Documents

To assist us in the early evaluation of applications, we require that you complete the IB Predicted Grade Form in your Engineering Applicant Portal and submit it via the Portal’s document upload feature prior to February 1. Please ensure you submit your full high school transcript to date showing all subjects in progress. Final IB results should be forwarded to U of T directly from the issuing body. The University does not accept paper final IB Diploma results.
