University Pathways

Through Pacific Link College University Pathway Programs, hundreds of international students have successfully transferred to PGWP eligible colleges such as Trinity Western University, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and  Vancouver Community College to further pursue their studies and receive post-graduate work permits. For questions on how our credits transfer to other universities please reach out to our admissions team.

How to Transfer from PLC to Other Universities

Students can transfer from Pacific Link College to our partnership universities and colleges such as Trinity Western University (TWU), Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU), and Vancouver Community College (VCC) through Block Transfer. Block Transfer occurs when a group of courses, often in the form of a certificate or diploma, is recognized for transfer credit. Credit transfer/Transfer Credit is the process by which one institution awards credit for comparable courses taken at another.

PLC students can transfer directly into the second or third year of the degree/diploma program depending on the agreement with our partnership universities/colleges.

In addition to transferring credits to a university, students are required to meet the Admissions and Transfer requirements of their chosen university and program in order to transfer to one. Since universities change their admissions and transfer processes occasionally then planning for transfer before completion of your program at PLC is very important. Our admissions team is available to make sure you get a seamless experience when transferring to another university. They will build a personalized study plan for you according to your primary goals and help you apply for the university or college when requesting for transfer.
