1. Explore programs
Saskatchewan Polytechnic has many programs that are available to international students.
Most programs are First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA), though some are Competitive. Learn more about the admission processes. The information on this page also explains our waitlist process.
2. Get ready to apply
If your transcripts are in a language other than English, you must produce translated documents. If you require that your documents be translated into English, we recommend the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Saskatchewan (ATIS).
Admission offers are to a specific program at a specific campus but you may choose to apply to more than one program or campus. Note, once an offer of admission is accepted and a seat be offered to your alternate program or campus, changing your program or campus incurs fees.
