    Ques. What do I need to get admission into University of Alberta and also get a scholarship?

    ● Top Answer By Shivani Tiwari on 11 Jan 21

    Ans. If you do some research, you’ll find that University of Alberta has an easy-seeming acceptance rate of 51% . But here’s the catch, this rate varies with your program choice and many other things that you should keep in mind. Acceptance rate here varies with subjects, some courses are easy to get into while some have cutthroat competition.  Like all major universities, the enrollment here heavily depends upon splendid grades, test scores and completion of required subjects. Plus, if you’re an international student then you will need to be extra special so that they have a good reason to take you in. Deciding Factors For Admission: Factors like research projects and publications play a huge role Impressive SOPs and genuine LORs are very important to stand out  GPA: Im Fall 2018, 70% of the students entering Faculty of Science had a grade average of 85 and higher English Proficiency: TOEFL iBT score of 100+ with a minimum 20 in each subsequent section is recommended A GRE score of 315 and above is just next to excellent. (For PG admissions) 155+ in the quantitative section of the GRE and a 4.0 in analytical ensures that you make up for any loopholes in your application Scholarships for Internationals:  While Alberta has plenty of scholarships, they are not all available to international students. The university provides many merit-based scholarships to accomplished internationals which will make your competition tougher.  Scholarships are of different kinds and usually have different requirements. You will need an application for some of these. Mostly, these are merit and talent based and there’s cutthroat competition for these so you need to prepare really well to be eligible for these.  Around 17,130 students received 87 million CAD worth of scholarships in 2017. Interests and previous experiences are an important deciding factor in the awarding of these scholarships so make sure you prepare accordingly.Read more
