How to Apply: Master of Educational Technology Degree

Please Note Application Deadlines

Please note the application deadline outlined on this web page. You must submit your application and all relevant documents (transcripts, references, etc.) by the application deadline. If your application is not complete by the application deadline, it cannot be considered.

An application checklist is accessible when you log in to your UBC Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies application account. This checklist will update as documents are submitted. You are responsible for ensuring all required documents are submitted.

Read Admission Requirements Carefully

Please review the Admission Requirements page to make sure that you meet admissions criteria for MET and UBC Graduate Studies. Note that in addition to meeting minimum academic criteria, all applicants must:

  • pay a non-refundable application fee
  • be able to speak, write, and read in English
  • have access to a computer and reliable Internet connectivity
  • have basic computer and Internet literacy

In addition, please be aware that successful applicants normally have a minimum of two years of professional experience in “education,” broadly defined as the process of facilitating learning at any level and in any context. Such experience may include teaching, facilitation of training, curriculum development, learning design, and related educational work. MET values professional experience in both formal ‘school-based’ settings and in informal learning environments, where learning occurs outside of structured curriculum learning environments. Educational experience in areas such as healthcare, industry, law enforcement, music, professional sport, and other sectors is welcomed.

Preference is given to candidates who use educational technology in their workplaces or who intend to expand their practice to include educational technology. Applicants should demonstrate that they have used and are conversant with digital learning technologies relevant in their work.
