Master in Global Affairs

The following documents are required to apply to the MGA program and must be submitted though the application process:

  • Complete Graduate Application
  • Official Post-Secondary Transcripts
  • Two letters of recommendation (one academic and one professional)
  • Statement of Intent (one page)
  • Resume or CV
  • Confirmation of English Language Proficiency (if required)

English Proficiency

Students are expected to be proficient in the use of English, both written and oral, when they begin their studies at the University of Prince Edward Island. The University requires that certification of such proficiency be presented by applicants whose mother tongue is not English or whose normal language of instruction throughout their education (as recognized by UPEI) was not English.  Tests of proficiency acceptable to the University, and the minimum scores that must be obtained, are listed on the English Language Proficiency Requirements page under the Application and Admission’s section of the Programs and Courses website. Such students should make arrangements to take the test at least three months before the semester opening date.

All Visa application requirements–such as document preparation and submission, travel to Embassies, and fees–are the responsibility of the student. If you are not a Canadian citizen, you will need a visa to study in Canada. All Canadian and foreign students who do not have European citizenship will need a visa to study in Europe. Students are encouraged to allow ample time for the visa approval process which can be highly variable.
