Brewing & Brewery Operations — Student Information for Fall 2021

For general information on NEXT STEPS including how to check your registration time, registering for courses, paying your tuition, and buying textbooks visit the Newly Accepted Students page. 

1) Year 1 Students

Welcome! We’re so glad you decided to join us and that you're embarking on an exciting start to your brewing career!

In September, we're hopeful that BC will be progressing to Stage 4 of the Restart Plan.  This is great news as it means your classes will run in-person on campus! However, some of your classes may still have an online learning component allowing some flexibility between on-campus and remote learning. 

The first step is to register for each of your required classes (see 'Time to register?' below), then go to courses.kpu.ca and log in with your Student ID and PIN to access the Moodle teaching sites associated with your courses. Your instructors will communicate with you through the program Moodle sites with more details and what to expect in September.

The Brewing and Brewery Operations Diploma program includes courses that students may have already completed at KPU or another institution. For example:

  • If you have received transfer credit for a course that may be used towards the Brewing program, do not register in it.  This includes courses in ENGL, CMNS, CPSC, CBSY, INFO and PHIL.
  • If you are still waiting on transfer credit, are unsure about the status of your transfer credit, or whether it can be used towards the program, please speak with an advisor about whether to register in that course.

It is important that you register in specific courses and sections as a full-time student.  This means you'll be with your class cohort, avoid registration conflicts and have all the necessary prerequisites to continue to the next semester.

Get Prepared
We want to ensure you're ready for September, so the Brewing Department has teamed up with the KPU Learning Centre to provide some amazing support systems.  Whether it's been a while since you attended school, you want to brush up on your study skills, or you want to test your math and chemistry aptitude, the Learning Centre has it all. 

As well, every August, the Brewing department also runs a Brewing Chemistry Basics course to help prepare first-year Brewing students for their chemistry classes. The course is taught by Brewing instructor Martina Solano Bielen and will run Aug. 23 – Sept. 2. For more details and to register for this continuing studies course, visit kpu.ca/cps/brewing-chem.
