Each year, many students from Morocco come to the University of Ottawa for a Canadian degree. They come because of the reputation the Canadian education system enjoys, and in particular, because of the University of Ottawa’s unique multicultural and bilingual (English and French) environment.

Located in the heart of Canada’s capital, the University of Ottawa offers the best of both worlds: students can live and study in French or English and still have the opportunity to become fully bilingual.

If you are an applicant originally from Morocco currently studying in a Canadian institution, please select your current or last school system for information specific to your profile.

  • Have obtained, or be in the process of obtaining, your baccalauréat.
  • Have earned a minimum average of 16/20 (requirements could be higher depending on the program of study you select)
  • Submit an English proficiency test if you are applying to a program offered in English

Space is limited and admission is competitive and not guaranteed. The University of Ottawa reserves the right to deny admission even if an applicant meets all requirements.

If you are currently studying in a French LycéeIB curriculum, GCE curriculum or an American High School, please consult the pages specific to your situation.

If you have taken postsecondary courses (whether or not you have received a degree) and you meet the following conditions, you can be considered for admission to an undergraduate program. You must:

  • Have a minimum average of 70% (requirements might be higher depending on the program of study you choose).
  • Have passed the prerequisites (see “1. Prepare to apply”) for the program of study (minimum of 10/20 required). Unless otherwise indicated, you must complete all prerequisites in your final year or at the postsecondary level.
  • Submit an English proficiency test if you are applying to a program offered in English.

You must ensure that you meet the minimum admission requirements before applying. If you have any questions about these admission requirements, contact InfoAdmission.

 

Once you have submitted your application and received your acknowledgment of receipt, you can submit your documents in uoZone. If you are currently in your classe terminale, submit the following documents:

  • Transcript from the past three years of secondary studies
  • English proficiency test results
  • Transcript of results from the first semester of your final year

If you have already graduated, submit the following documents:

  • Baccalauréat results
  • English proficiency test results

Some international students can receive their study permits sooner by applying through the SDS, since Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will process most eligible SDS applications within 20 calendar days. Learn more about the Student Direct Stream.

If you have completed some postsecondary studies, you will be evaluated based on them, even if you are applying for an undergraduate program.

We may grant you advanced standing (i.e., transfer your credits), depending on the program to which you apply. Faculties that grant advanced standing base their decision on the discipline, the courses you have completed and the length of your studies.
