Important Dates and Timelines for International Students

Due to recent IRCC changes, please see Updated International Application Process.


The H application portal is now open to international applicants for the Fall 2024 and Winter 2025 terms.

H welcomes students from more than 70 countries around the world each year. As part of our commitment to ensuring our student body remains vibrant and representative of different cultures and backgrounds, we have established strategic enrolment targets based on “Country of Citizenship”. H considers many factors when setting strategic country enrolment targets including program availability, visa processing times and approval rates, under-represented regions, diversity of the student body, and more. 

Note: Due to the high volume of international applications received, you can expect to receive updates regarding application status within 6 - 8 weeks from the date your application is submitted

H is proud to offer three (3) annual intakes within each academic year.  It is important to note that not all campus-specific programs are offered in each intake.  

To review the campus and intake your desired program is offered in, please check the program profile in our Full-Time Programs list.

For a list of programs open for application, visit the Programs Open for International Applications page.
