Using the University Transfer Program, students are able to explore their interests through 1st and 2nd year university courses that may be transferred to a college or university in the second or third program year.
Bachelor degrees are typically 4-years in duration, and are offered by all major public and private universities in Canada.
These universities use a credit-based system, with majors (specializations) and degree programs requiring completion of a set number of course credits.
Completion of a standard bachelor degree program requires 120 credits.
To gain admission to the university of your choice, you will have to fulfil the university’s basic admission requirements.
As well, some Programs have admission requirements in addition to the requirements for admission to the university.
To learn what the admission requirements are, please visit the webpage of the Program you are interested in.
