University Qualifying Studies
University Qualifying Studies provides an opportunity for study to those students who want to pursue upgrading or preparatory studies prior to, or while beginning, their undergraduate or vocational program.
All applicants who do not have the appropriate High School prerequisite, or those referred by instructors, must take assessments in English and mathematics to ensure appropriate placement in the courses. Assessments are booked through Student Enrolment Services (kpu.ca/ses).
Requirements are dependent on the program of study the student is pursuing.
For course descriptions, see:
- Biology Qualifying (BIOQ)
- Chemistry Qualifying (CHEQ)
- English Qualifying (ENGQ)
- Mathematics Qualifying (MATQ)
- Physics Qualifying (PHYQ)
These courses may be used to prepare for many KPU programs.
Some Qualifying Studies courses are provincially articulated through the Adult Upgrading articulation system; some Qualifying Studies courses may be transferable. Please consult with an Academic Advisor for the Faculty of Academic & Career Advancement.
