Prospective Students

The Certificate Program in Human Resource Management is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. The qualifications listed below do not guarantee admission to this program in any given year.  We will consider applications from Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents but are unable to consider applications from International (VISA) students.

Students whose academic background overlaps significantly with this program or who have studied Human Resource Management (or related areas such as Employment/Industrial Relations) at a graduate level are not eligible to apply to this undergraduate level certificate program.   For information on other Canadian institutions offering HR related studies please click here.

Students who do not hold degrees can apply for admission consideration to the Faculty of Arts and Science and request enrollment in the Industrial Relations & Human Resource Management program after successful completion of year 1.  All of the courses described in this program are contained in the Employment Relations undergraduate degree program. In addition, other post-secondary educational institutions in the Greater Toronto Area offer courses in this field.  

University policies on access to student records and personal privacy allow us to speak only with the applicant unless we have written permission to discuss the application with someone else.

We do not provide a pre-application evaluation service. Only those applicants who have attained a competitive level of academic achievement should apply for admission consideration to this program.

Note:  This is a part-time program and the majority of students will finish the program over two academic years.  Some courses may be offered only during the day-time.   Students who have been granted transfer credits and/ or students who are able to enroll in a conflict-free course schedule may be able to enrol in a full-time course load and complete the program in less than two academic years.

2018 Admission Criteria

Note:   You should apply to this program only if you meet the minimum admission requirements.   The $90 application fee is non-refundable.  Letters of reference will not be used as part of the admissions process.

  • A conferred three-year academic undergraduate degree from a recognized university in a field other than HRM or related fields, with a competitive overall average  (B average, 73-75% range), is the minimum required for admission consideration to the Certificate Program in Human Resource Management.  The overall average and the degree must be equivalent to a three-year Canadian undergraduate academic degree. This is a limited enrolment program and meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee admission in any given year.   This means that if the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number of students the program can accommodate the overall average will be increased.
