Applicants are required to submit the following documents in their application to the Master of Financial Insurance Program:
- Academic transcripts relating to all qualifications gained from undergraduate onwards. Electronic copies are required at the time of application. If successful at gaining admission, only then will we require sealed official copies to be mailed to the MFI Graduate Office.
- Current CV/Resume. This should be kept to ONE page.
- A letter of intent or personal statement (limited to 500 words) explaining interest in the financial and/or insurance sector. Applicants should also explain why this program is an appropriate fit and how it aligns with their career goals. Please note: poorly written statements will be deemed inadmissible so we strongly advise that you carefully proof read your statement for grammatical and spelling errors.
- Three letters of recommendation: please provide details of three referees (name, affiliation i.e. university/company, and official/company e-mail address)
- ELP test scores (if applicable) Department Code: 0982.
- Shortlisted applicants may be invited for interview with a member of the MFI Team or Faculty for an opportunity to ask questions and determine if they are a good fit with the MFI Program.
Requirements for proof of English Language Proficiency (if applicable):
If your admitting degree was earned at a university where the language of instruction and examination is not English, you must pass an acceptable English Language Proficiency Test as outlined in the Calendar of the School of Graduate Studies. Acceptable tests and required scores are listed here.
If your admitting degree was earned at a university where the language of instruction and examination was uniformly English, you may be exempt. However, you may still require a letter confirming the language of instruction and this must be provided directly to the graduate office by the applicant’s home institution.
In the event that you have earned a degree in a program split between two institutions, where one of the institutions language of instruction and examination is not uniformly English, even if the degree is awarded by an English-medium institution, language scores must be provided, as the language of instruction and examination is not uniformly English.
Please note that your application is not complete until you have submitted the ELP requirement.
Canadian domestic students who studied at a Canadian university where the language of instruction is French are exempt from these requirements.
