I have a question. I'm French-Canadian but living and studying in Argentina. I'm currently studying physics at university, doing my 1st/2nd year there. In order to get the first diploma the course lasts 5 years (it's about 25 matters and a special work on the last year). From it you can apply for a doctorate without even passing by a master. (In Argentina, that is). So I'm planning to get the first diploma and then come to Canada (Montréal) or France, in order to apply for a master (because in Argentina there isn't that much choices for a doctorate). I'd like to know what are the criteria for admission. Would my diploma be enough? Have I to pass an exam? Are my grades important? What if I'm having trouble getting the diploma in 5 years, but I do it in 7 years? Thanks in advance.
