Program description

Pre-professional transfer programs at uLethbridge facilitate a jump start on your professional career in a smaller, more personal environment than some of the larger universities.

Through arrangements between the University of Lethbridge and professional Faculties at other universities, transfer programs have been established that will prepare students for admission to professional programs offered at other institutions.

Not only will you save money on things like tuition and your cost of living, but you’ll also have access to the professors teaching your classes — and writing your textbooks — and the opportunity to participate in research as an undergraduate student.

These programs are intended to give students priority access to courses satisfying the programs recommended by the professional schools. While these programs have been designed to transfer seamlessly to our partner universities, they are not exclusive and could be used to transfer to other professional schools. Students should seek advice from the school to which they intend to transfer if this is their intent.

Students at uLethbridge may prepare themselves to apply for admission to a number of professional programs offered at other institutions. Social work at the University of Calgary (U of C) is one of those programs. Students can gain the courses and experience to apply to social work at the U of C by pursing a Bachelor of Arts at uLethbridge with a major of the student's choice. Majors of particular interest are:

Admission to the U of C Social Work program is by quota and is competitive. Students may apply to social work after completing 20 courses, however applicants may need to complete 30 courses or their degree to be competitive. Additionally, the courses in this program can all be completed on our Lethbridge campus though the degree is from the U of C.

Admission to social work is not solely based on the courses completed and the GPA obtained, academic and extracurricular involvement at the University of Lethbridge is strongly recommended. This can include applied studies, co-op work terms and volunteering.

Dream big, and have the confidence in your education to get you there. Make uLethbridge your destination.
