D10 Primary/Junior

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) offers a 16-month consecutive Bachelor of Education degree program focused on teaching at the Kindergarten to Grade 6 level.

The program places emphasis on preparing elementary school teacher candidates who are strong in the areas of science, mathematics and technology, and who are skilled in the use of technologies.

Our program is fully web‑enabled, with every teacher candidate having wireless access to the internet. Educational technology is thoroughly integrated into the teaching and learning process.

Teacher candidates will become comfortable and confident with the use of technology for course design and delivery, communication with peers, colleagues and faculty, and as a method of supporting their own lifelong professional development.

Primary/Junior Admission Requirements

Selection is based on the following academic criteria:

You will hold an undergraduate degree from a recognized university, with a minimum overall academic average of 70% (B‑ or 2.7 GPA) in your best 10 full‑year or best 20 half‑year courses completed, or equivalent. Preference is given to students with 4‑year honours degrees. You must receive the required undergraduate degree by June 30, 2018.

Because Primary/Junior teachers deal with a wide range of subject areas, it is desirable that you have a broad academic background. In assessing the academic breadth of Primary/Junior applicants, the Faculty of Education gives preference to candidates who have 1 or more 3‑credit hour (half-year) undergraduate or graduate courses in these subject groupings:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • English/Linguistics
  • Environmental Science
  • Fine Arts
  • Foreign Languages
  • Liberal Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Physics

Few applicants will have course work in all of the above areas; however, we consider that the more areas you cover, the stronger your application.

A complete application includes the following:

  1. Official Transcripts
    Ensure that any in-progress courses are listed on your official transcript(s).
  2. Evidence of Oral and Written Proficiency in English
    You are required to give evidence of English proficiency. This requirement can be satisfied with 1 of the following criteria:

    1. English is your first language.
    2. You complete the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program at UOIT’s English Language Centre.
    3. You studied full‑time for at least 3 years of formal, full-time study (no less than 3 courses per semester) in a university where English was the language of instruction and examination. If this applies, please provide verification from your school.
      Please note: The minimum 3‑year requirement does not include time enrolled in English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.
    4. You achieved the required proficiency on 1 of the English-language tests that is acceptable to UOIT. See a list of acceptable English-language proficiency tests and scores.

Applicants may be required to complete a personal characteristic evaluation.

Please note: Enrollment in the Primary/Junior program is competitive. Consequently, possessing the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Acceptance is based on the number and calibre of applications received in a given year.

All successful applicants will be required to present a clear Tuberculin (TB) test and criminal background check upon registration. Any costs associated with the medical test or criminal background check are your responsibility.

Applicants Educated Within Canada and the United States

You must arrange to send official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions you attended. Transcripts from Ontario universities must be ordered by completing the TEAS Transcript Request Form (TRF), and submitting it to the OUAC along with the appropriate fees and the TEAS application.

Transcripts from all non-Ontario postsecondary institutions should be sent directly from those institutions to the Registrar’s office at UOIT.

Services for Students with Disabilities

UOIT wants to ensure equal access to all academically qualified students. Support systems are available for students with a physical, mental health, medical, psychiatric or learning disability.

These supports may include adaptive testing arrangements, FM hearing systems, visual aids, access to computers and special software, counselling and more.

UOIT expects that the grades for students with disabilities, who received disability‑related accommodations in high school or during a previous degree or diploma program, will accurately reflect their academic ability.

However, if you were not accommodated for all or part of your high school or previous diploma or degree program, or believe there are extenuating circumstances related to your disability that negatively impacted your grades, you may be eligible for consideration on this basis.

Applicants with disabilities who meet the minimum published admission requirements (have achieved the minimum average and have all appropriate prerequisite courses) and wish to be considered for admission on the basis of their disability must follow the process outlined.

Once it has been established that you meet the minimum published admissions average, your documentation will be reviewed by Student Accessibility Services (SAS).

Please note: All disability‑related documents must be sent to the UOIT SAS office by the deadlines listed on the admissions website. Please ensure you read and follow the steps outlined to submit an application for consideration on the basis of a disability.

To discuss specific requirements or for any questions and concerns, contact SAS at 905‑721‑3266 or studentaccessibility@uoit.ca.
