Pre-law programs

There is a vast amount of career options available to you within the legal field. Whether you want to be a law clerk, legal secretary or lawyer, our pre-law programs are here to help you achieve your goals. To attend law school, you must complete a three- or four-year undergraduate degree.

Though it can be in any field of interest, you may find it helpful to obtain a degree in the legal field. This will give your law school application a competitive edge by ensuring you have fundamental knowledge and an understanding of the law.

In order to apply to medical school, you must have completed a minimum of three years of an undergraduate degree, and in many cases, the entire degree.

Any one of these degrees will put you in a great position to complete the Ontario Medical School Application Service (OMSAS) application. However, keep in mind that each Doctor of Medicine (MD) program will have its own unique set of admission requirements. For this reason, it is a good idea to do your research on the program(s) you may be interested in attending before choosing your undergraduate program.

Pre-vet program

If you're interested in becoming a veterinarian, you're in luck! We offer a partnership with St Matthew's University School of Veterinary Medicine which allows entry to Ontario Tech graduates who meet the admission requirements and satisfactorily complete the application process.

Your first step to veterinary school is to find an undergraduate program that provides the coursework and prerequisites needed to apply. Programs we offer that are a good starting point include:

No matter what avenue you wish to pursue, researching programs and learning more about your schools of interest are important. You'll be spending a good chunk of your time at school, so you want to be sure you'll be satisfied with the support, community and other elements they offer.

Also, keep in mind that each university will have established their own set of admission requirements for law, veterinary or medical programs. Completing one of these programs is not a guarantee that you'll meet all requirements for your specific program of interest, so make sure you do your research ahead of time!
