Admission to Bachelor of Education Program

General Prerequisites


The teacher education program can be completed in two ways:

1.  The Combined Degrees Program is a five year program which results in the simultaneous granting of two degrees

2.  If you already have a degee, you may be eligible for the After Degree B.Ed. Program


You'll choose a teachable school subject major as the UofL program does not consider applications based upon elementary or seconday streams.  Teacher certification is K-12 in Alberta.

Before you can be admitted to the Faculty of Education, you’ll need to meet the following general requirements:

Are you applying as a high school student?

If you are applying to the Combined Degree directly from high school, you’ll need to meet the general entrance requirements of the University.  Your application and all of your supporting documents will need to be submitted to the Registrar’s Office and not to the Faculty of Education.

Are you applying as a transfer student?

If you are thinking of transferring to the University of Lethbridge to complete a degree in Education, your admission to the Faculty will depend on where you are in your current program. 
You may be considered for direct entry to the Faculty of Education if you have already completed 20 transferable courses (60 credit hours), including 15 Arts and Science courses and 5 appropriate Education courses, and met all other admission requirements.

If you haven’t yet completed these requirements, you can apply to be a part of the Pre-Education program in the Faculty of Arts and Science, Fine Arts or Management. Learn more about what you need to transfer to the Faculty of Education.
