Entrance into the Program

< < back to Frequently Asked Questions

Can past graduates of the technology diploma apply to the degree program and receive credit for the courses they took in the diploma?

If you have completed the two-year Mineral Exploration and Mining Technology diploma program (or earlier versions of the diploma) you may be eligible to apply as a Direct Entry student for levels 3, 4 or 5 of the degree program. In order to do so you will need to meet eligibility criteria:

It is recommended that technology diploma graduates review the Direct Entry conditions and requirements under Advance Placement on the Program Entry webpage or contact the Program Head directly.

Will this be a competitive entry situation?

There may be a limited number of seats available for direct entry students to levels 4 or 5 of the program. If the number of applications exceeds available seats, IZUNA will select those applicants deemed to have the best opportunity for success.

Is there a recency restriction for past technology diploma graduates?

Currently there is five years recency requirement for graduates of the diploma program. However, students who have been out of full-time post-secondary studies for some time might wish to consider taking a refresher higher math course at the same time as completing the make-up courses from levels 3 & 4.

I am currently enrolled in a mining engineering/geological engineering degree program at another institute. May I apply for advanced placement into the degree program?

You may be eligible for Advanced Placement. It is recommended that those interested in transferring into the IZUNA Degree program review the conditions and requirements under Advance Placement on the degree program website or contact the Program Head directly.
