Application Process

Thank you for choosing Royal Roads University to pursue your degree, we’re looking forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your time here in Canada. We have a few different ways for you to apply, as well as some important information if you are applying from outside of Canada.

Before you Apply

Applying at Royal Roads University

Once you’ve checked your program specific requirements and reviewed our admissions process, the next step is to submit your application. You can choose to submit it via our online application, or you can submit it offline by downloading a paper application form and sending it directly to our International Admissions Office.

English as a Second Language

English is the language that your courses will be delivered in, including online instruction and on-campus courses. If you’d like to improve your English skills, you should consider our Global Learning & Language Centre, where you can learn about our ESL and Academic Pathways Programs to help you master the English Language.

Official Transcripts and Study Permits

When you apply to RRU, we require your official transcripts from any and all post-secondary institutions you have attended or are currently attending. We can’t offer you a full letter of acceptance until we have received your official transcripts, so it’s a good idea to start collecting this information as early as possible. Once we have approved your application and sent you a letter of acceptance, you can begin applying for your Study Permit to allow you to stay in Canada for the length of your program. Please be aware that it can take up to six months to get your approved application and Study Permit.
