How long does it take to apply to University of Regina?

The time it takes to apply to the University of Regina in Canada depends on the program you are applying to and whether you are a domestic or international student.

Domestic students

For domestic students, the application process typically takes around 4 weeks once all required documents have been submitted. However, it is important to note that processing times may vary depending on the time of year and the volume of applications received.

International students

International students should allow at least 4 weeks for their application to be processed, but it is recommended to submit your application as early as possible. This is because international students may also need to apply for a study permit, which can take several weeks or even months to process.

To ensure that your application is processed as quickly as possible, be sure to submit all required documents on time and in the correct format. You can find more information about the application process and required documents on the University of Regina’s website.

Tips for speeding up the application process:

  • Start working on your application early. This will give you plenty of time to gather the required documents and write your personal statement.
