Applicants will be sent information on self-identifying once their application has been received.

Enrolment in the Bachelor of Education program is limited. Selection of candidates is based primarily on academic achievement. Experiential qualifications will only be taken into consideration for those close to, and above, the established cut-off average. Cut-off averages will vary from year to year depending on the quality and quantity of applications.

The academic average is calculated on the best 10 full (20 half or semester) university courses (not including college transfer courses). If an applicant presents more than 25 full courses, only the first 25 courses will be considered. Applicants with a graduate degree will have a maximum of 5 full graduate courses included in their average.
A limited number of spaces will be reserved for Aboriginal applicants and candidates who hold an undergraduate degree plus an Early Childhood Education (ECE) or Child and Youth Worker (CYW) diploma or hold an undergraduate degree specializing in child studies. The majority of these spaces are in the Primary/Junior division. Aboriginal and ECE or CYW applicants must have completed a minimum of 10 full undergraduate courses.
