Undergraduate – Western University


Refer to the application and the university's website for up-to-date program details.



Founded in 1878, Western is one of the most picturesque campuses in North America. Situated in London, Ontario, Western is comprised of a main campus and 2 affiliated university colleges: Huron and King’s.

With annual research funding of more than $240 million, 62 research centres and institutes, 2 affiliated research hospitals and an international reputation for success, we rank as one of Canada’s top 10 research-intensive universities and in the top 1% of universities worldwide.

We offer a unique approach to education. You will pursue your passions and mix and match your programs to create the degree perfect for you.



At Western, you have lots of options! Apply to a faculty or program only once. You will be asked to indicate your Subject of Major Interest in your application – this is just an indication of what you would like to study in that program or faculty, and not a commitment.

Admission Points

Full-time: Fall/Winter. Our full-time term is September to April.

Admission Requirements


Supporting Documents


You are responsible for ensuring your supporting documents are complete and accurate. Under our admission policy, any omission or falsified information will negatively impact the evaluation of the application.

Language Requirements

We want to make sure you can succeed in courses taught in English. If English is not your first language, you will need to submit proof of English-language proficiency. The Undergraduate Admissions Office reserves the right to require any applicant to write a test of English.

Supplementary Documents

Some programs have mandatory supplementary applications required for admission consideration. We will not consider you for admission to these programs unless you submit both the OUAC application and your supplementary application by the deadline.


Scholarships, Bursaries and Financial Aid

We have $27 million available in financial aid, scholarship options and work-study opportunities.


Offers of Admission

We will post all decisions in your Student Center. You will receive email notification of a decision to the email account you supplied in your OUAC application.

If you receive an offer and are currently enrolled in courses, your offer will be conditional. The conditions of your offer will be clearly outlined in your offer of admission letter and in your Offer Portal. Usually, we want to see that you have graduated, kept your grades above a minimum average and, if applicable, achieved minimum English proficiency test scores.

When you graduate, you will submit your official final documents and we will check that you have met our conditions. If you are successful, we will turn your conditional offer into an unconditional offer, but we will not issue you a new offer letter.


Accessibility Services

We have many services and programs that support the personal, physical, social and academic needs of students with disabilities.


Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We welcome and encourage applications from everyone, especially from members of equity-deserving or systemically oppressed groups.
