We acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
We are now accepting applications for Fall 2021 full and part-time intake.
Applications for the MBET program are accepted and considered on a rolling basis throughout the year. Applicants will receive an admissions decision within approximately six to eight weeks from the time an application is completed. We will continue to accept applications until the program is full.
The following admissions requirements apply to both the part-time and full-time MBET programs.
Application admission rounds
Applications for the MBET program are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year. Applications are processed as they are received and evaluated in the context of the other applications in our queue at any given moment in time. We will continue to accept applications until the program is full. There are three application and admission periods throughout the year, but there is only one intake per year.
During this period we receive the least amount of applications.
Full-time: Aug. 1 - Feb. 1
Part-time: Aug. 1 - May 1
This is the peak application period. Most applications are received during this time.
Full-time: Feb. 2 - May 1
Part-time: May 2 - Jul. 1
During this period we receive more applications than during early admission, but less than during the first-round.
Full-time: May 2 - Jul. 1
Part-time: Jul. 2 - Aug. 1
While we do accept applications on a rolling basis, we recommend that international students complete their applications by April 1. The reason for this recommendation is that completed applications take approximately six to eight weeks to process and we want to ensure that those who receive an offer of admission have enough time to obtain a study permit and/or visa and join the MBET class in September. Yes, international applicants can start and complete their applications after April 1, but there is a risk to doing so. Please consider this information carefully before applying.
Full-time MBET scholarship deadline
There are a variety of scholarships available to qualifying applicants to the full-time program. In order to be considered for scholarships, all full-time MBET applicants must complete their applications by May 1. To ensure you have sufficient time to complete your application, we recommend beginning your application a minimum of two to four weeks before the deadline.
