We understand that one of the most important tasks for you as a teacher or guidance counsellor is to help guide students toward choosing a career path. A solid understanding of the education options available helps a student make a career choice that's right for them. We want to make your job an easy one, and we invite you to tell your students and their families about Fanshawe College campus tours and information sessions.

And we have all the information you need right here about the questions you get asked every day.

1 . Where can I check the status to see what programs are open and closed?

Visit our open programs page to view a full listing of programs that are still accepting applications.

2. Does Fanshawe College automatically send out alternate offers?

Yes, Fanshawe will send out alternate offers for certain programs. These offers are usually to preparatory programs in that subject area, provided the prep program is not oversubscribed, for example, Pre-Health Science. For specific program details, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 519-452-4277.

3. What should my advice be to students applying to oversubscribed programs?

The best advice for these students is to always have a contingency plan. Research the program thoroughly to ensure that it is a traditionally oversubscribed program and find out what the most direct route into the program is. Contact a member of our Liaison Team or the Office of the Registrar for more details. Visit www.fanshawec.ca/hcp for more details. 

4 . What programs are oversubscribed?

There are a number of programs that are traditionally oversubscribed and are very difficult to gain entry without some form of post-secondary education. These programs are listed as "highly competitive" in the course descriptions and typically include Music Industry Arts, Dental Hygiene, Paramedic, Medical Radiation Technology and Respiratory Therapy.

5. Where can students check for entrance scholarships and bursaries?

Bursaries and Scholarships are available through our Financial Aid and Student Awards Office, a great resource for students to begin their research.

6. Does Fanshawe College have a differential between U and C courses?

No, Fanshawe does not offer a differential between U- and C-level courses.
