Transferability

Transferring Courses:

The majority of program food service theory courses are transferable to university, specifically dietetics at UBC. The recommended support courses are also transferable. Please refer to www.bctransferguide.ca or consult with Langara College’s Counselling Department for details.

Prior Learning Assessment is available for students with related food service experience. First year flexible assessment courses are available after assessment by the Department.

Graduates of baccalaureate programs in nutrition or dietetics, who are eligible for but have not obtained a dietetic internship in Canada, may enter the program for the fourth, fifth and sixth terms provided that they meet the requirement for experience in the food service industry. Upon approval of block transfer credit (30 credits) and completion of 30 credits from the program, a diploma in Nutrition and Food Service Management will be granted. The graduate will then be eligible for membership in the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management and regional associations. Advance placement is discussed with each applicant.

Transferring the Program:

Students who complete Langara's Nutrition and Food Service Management Diploma will now be eligible to block transfer into the third year of Royal Roads University's Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurial Management or Bachelor of Business Administration in Sustainability and International Business programs. Students must complete the diploma, including FMGT 1116 course and meet all other additional requirements (per the program admission requirements listed for the BBA and or BCom on the Royal Roads University website) including meeting any GPA or work experience requirement for the program that they intend to apply to. Entrance to all programs at Royal Roads is on a competitive basis and is dependent on space availability within the program at the time of applying.

Please note that the Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurial Management and the BBA in Sustainability and International Business are undergraduate completion degrees that comprise years three and four of a four-year undergraduate degree. The Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurial Management can be completed either in a 12-month accelerated program or a 24-month blended study program. The Bachelor of Business Administration in Sustainability and International Business is an on-campus 24-month program.
