Application Reminder

Not all programs accept applications for all intakes - please review the individual program pages to see which intakes are offered. Admissions will close once the enrolment capacity is reached for each program. It is very uncommon for a program to remain open for the entire application period so we encourage prospective applicants to apply early.

The number of submitted applications regularly exceeds capacity. Admissions are highly competitive. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. If we cannot offer admission to a specific program, we may provide an alternate offer to a different - but closely related - program. Please take this into consideration before applying.

Lambton College uses a rigorous screening process to ensure the integrity and verification of applicant information. This process can include direct communication via email, telephone, or video chat. Please be aware that these interactions may be conducted by a designated third-party company, specifically appointed for this purpose. By submitting an application to Lambton College, you consent to the sharing of your contact details and pertinent application information with this third-party for the necessary verification process.
