University of British Columbia is one of the top-notch universities in Canada and the IELTS score requirement for admission there is 6.5 to 7.0.

The exact score varies based on the specialization. So let me know about the specialization you wish to pursue and I can help you with the exact score requirement for the same. 

Just in case your desired specialization requires a score more than what you have scored, you can also opt for the schools that do not even require an IELTS score in the first place. Here’s a list of the best schools that you can consider along with the criteria that you need to fulfill in place of IELTS:

 

University of Winnipeg

- The university has its own English Language Program (ELP) which you need complete with the prescribed score.


Brock University

- The university offers the Intensive English Language Program (IELP) for those who can’t provide English language proficiency scores.


University of Saskatchewan

- Who can’t prove their English proficiency can take up the U-PREP program at the University of Saskatchewan Language Centre (USLC) before beginning their chosen course.


University of Regina

- This university accepts several alternatives like TOEFL, TOEFL iBT, Duolingo, CAEL scores for admissions to UG and PG programmes.


Cambrian University

- The language proficiency of students is evaluated upon arrival, and those who do not meet the prerequisites will have to take up English language courses before beginning their chosen program.

 

Let me know if you need any further information or assistance regarding applying to any of these schools.

Hello Komali, 

Pursuing your master's at the University of British Columbia is an excellent choice! A 6.5 IELTS score does meet the minimum language requirements for most programs at UBC, which typically look for scores between 6.0 and 7.0. However, securing admission involves more than just meeting the language criteria. UBC considers a range of factors including your academic performance, research interests, and extracurricular activities.

To enhance your application, ensure that your academic transcripts reflect strong performance, and your personal essays clearly articulate your research goals and how they align with what UBC offers. Additionally, securing strong letters of recommendation can significantly bolster your case. Start your application process early to manage deadlines effectively, and consider reaching out to program advisors for specific guidance tailored to your chosen field of study.
