Education – Connected program


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by degree)

General information


The Connected program allows our students to apply for advanced acceptance into a Consecutive Education program. Acceptance is dependent on GPA and subject specialization requirements. The Connected program is available for both the Primary/Junior (Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6) and Intermediate/Senior (Grade 7 to 12) programs. The program allows students to participate in education seminars, visit classes and discover if a career in education is right for them. Students will be encouraged to meet faculty, current teacher candidates and graduates to gain a better understanding of the teaching profession and the multiple career paths one can pursue with a Bachelor of Education degree.

Admission requirements


Applications to the Connected program will be accepted in the winter semester of students’ second or third year of studies in an undergraduate program at our university. This program will have limited space and applications are considered on a competitive basis based on GPA. Successful applicants will be notified by the Office of the Registrar by the end of May after the term of application. Students in their final year of study are not eligible for the Connected program and must apply to the Consecutive Bachelor of Education program through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).

During the fall semester of the students’ final year of study, the Faculty of Education will determine which students completed sufficient modules in the Connected program to continue into the Consecutive Bachelor of Education program. Eligible students must present a GPA of 2.7 in their best 20 courses (for P/J and I/S) and a GPA of 2.7 in each teachable subject (for I/S) to gain admission into the Consecutive Bachelor of Education program.
