Hi,

does anyone know the conversion for LSHTM or University of London, to the Canadian grade system. Every uni has different requirements for a 2:1, 2:2, etc. Most schools I've seen accept a 3.0/4.0 as a 2:1.

I don't know what you're studying but for medicine, we were recommended by the UKFPO to use the Graduate Recruitment Bureau for international degree equivalents. For a 2:1 UK degree, they list 3.5/4.0 for a 3-year Bachelor's degree and 3.1/4.0 for a 4-year Bachelor's degree.

I wanted to apply for the Msc control of infectious disease. The website is helpful, but some unis like Edinburgh require a 3.5/4.0 for a 2:1, its so confusing.

Oh I see, I misunderstood and I thought you had a UK bachelor's but you want to apply for MSc programmes in Canada.

So you have a 4-year Canadian bachelor's degree but you're applying to the LSHTM MSc? I had a look at their website and found, "There is no single grading system used at national or provincial level [in Canada]. Please contact us before applying to see if you have an acceptable GPA." The admissions team email is [email protected] and "for advice as to the suitability of your qualifications. Please ensure that you include full details of your qualification, including the full, untranslated title and awarding institution, as well as information about the programme content and assessment structure." For the part about programme content and assessment structure, I'd hazard a guess that a transcript would suffice.

Best of luck!
