Transition Year Program

If you are an Indigenous student who does not meet the competitive admission requirements, the Transition Year Program (TYP) may be right for you. In this program, you start your first year of studies in a program specially designed with extra tutorial support in every class to help you succeed with the transition to university-level studies.

Program requirements

The courses you take during the transition year must include specific courses required for the program you want to enter. At the end of that year, you then apply to the program you want. You will be admitted if you have succeeded in your courses in the TYP.

In order to apply to the Transition Year Program, you must be an Indigenous applicant, 18 years old, have a minimum mark of 50% in each required subject, and have a minimum overall average of 60%. You will also need between two and five high school subjects, depending on which degree you want to complete.

Complete admission requirements are detailed in the University Calendar.
