Master of Education School Counselling Prerequisite

Admission to the MEd in School Counselling degree program requires the successful completion of a 4-year undergraduate degree from a recognized post-secondary institution and registration as a Teacher in the province of British Columbia.

Candidates for the MEd in School Counselling must have completed an undergraduate course in interviewing and counselling skills (or counselling theories). This is a prerequisite for courses in the first quarter of the program—not required for admittance to the program, but is required prior to enrolling in fall courses.

An interviewing and counselling skills course will be offered through City University in an online format in the summer quarter.

To verify if prior academic courses qualify as prerequisite, please submit a course description/syllabus, plus a scanned copy of transcripts’ course, to the following email address:

In cases in which the prerequisite are clearly addressed through prior undergraduate education, your application will be considered for admittance to the MEd in School Counseling program. Some equivalent course work include: VCC CNSK 1401; UBC CNPS 362; SFU EDUC 423.
