Transferability

Transferability

The curriculum in the Diploma (Food, Nutrition and Health Transfer) Program  was developed specifically to be meet the requirements of UBC’s dietetic program. Successful completion of this Diploma program allows the student to apply directly to the 3rd year of the Dietetics program at UBC.

Application to UBC Dietetics is a competitive program with a very specific list of requirements. Students are referred to their website (UBC Dietetics – Prospective Students). The deadline for admission applications is January 31 of each year (or the day(s) before if the 31st falls on a weekend).

Acceptance into UBC Dietetics is not guaranteed with the completion of Langara’s Diploma in Food, Nutrition, and Health Transfer Program. If the student is not successful the first time at UBC, a second application the following year will be required. A maximum of 2 applications is permitted. This program can also be transferred to other food and nutrition programs at UBC or the Nutrition and Food Service Management Program at Langara.

These courses can also be transferable to other food and nutrition programs in the country – best to check their websites and follow procedures at the goal institution to confirm.
