University Transfer

University Transfer means you start studying for your degree at Douglas and transfer to another school to complete your studies. Douglas is the starting point to over 1,000 different degree programs around the world including UBC, SFU, University of Victoria, University of Toronto, University of Calgary, University of Alberta, McGill University, and many more. To learn more about how and where specific courses transfer within British Columbia, see the BC Transfer Guide.

The benefits of university transfer at Douglas College include:

  • More time with professors. While university professors are often focused on research, our instructors are dedicated to teaching.
  • Smaller class sizes. First-year classes at major universities can have 500 to 800 students. At Douglas, the same courses are taught in a class of 30 to 35 students. As a result, you will have the chance to engage in class discussion and develop meaningful connections with the instructor and your classmates.
  • A strong return on investment. On average, international students save approximately $30,000 by taking their first and second year at Douglas and then transferring into third year at a top Canadian university.

“I was worried about what and how to study in a different country, so I decided to apply to Douglas to take some time to adjust. Douglas helped me adjust to a new country’s educational system first and understand who I really am and what I want to do in life.”
