Academic Partnerships

Increasingly, education is a cooperative effort that utilizes the resources of several institutions. Booth University College has developed a series of partnerships that enrich the educational experience of our students and enhance the opportunities available to them. We continue to explore new partnerships that will provide our students with even more resources in the future.

UNIVERSITY OF WINNIPEG FACULTY OF EDUCATION ARTICULATION AGREEMENT

APPLYING TO TRANSFER INTO THE FACULTY OF EDUCATION:
Students may transfer a maximum of 42 credit hours of recognized Booth University College courses towards the Integrated Education bachelor degree program at the University of Winnipeg. Typically, these will be courses in areas such as English, Psychology, Sociology and/or History. There are no specific courses that must be completed prior to transferring into the program. Once students have transferred into the Faculty of Education, no additional courses can be completed elsewhere due to residency requirements for the BA or BSc and Education degrees at the University of Winnipeg.

Students transferring fewer than 18 credit hours will be admitted to Year 1 of the Integrated Program at the University of Winnipeg. Students transferring 18-42 credit hours will be admitted to Year 2 of the Integrated Program. Due to the sequential nature of the required education courses and student teaching the Integrated Program will normally take a minimum of four additional calendar years to complete. For this reason there is no admission to Year 3 of the Integrated Program. Note: Students may have completed more than 42 credit hours of courses; however, the maximum number of transferable credit hours that are eligible is 42. Applicants who have completed a degree (regardless of the number of credit hours that transfer into the Education degree) must apply to the after degree program.

There are typically 50 transfer spaces available each year. Booth University College students will compete for these spaces. Typically, applicants need a GPA in excess of 2.5 to be competitive. Booth University College students must complete the University of Winnipeg application form, supply any other required documents, and adhere to the May 1 deadline. Potential applicants are encouraged to attend information sessions about this program, which are held regularly throughout the year and may consult the Faculty of Education website for more detailed information on the Transfer Program.

APPLYING TO THE FACULTY OF EDUCATION AFTER-DEGREE PROGRAM:
Booth University College bachelor degrees are recognized by the Department of Education, and graduates of Booth University College are eligible to apply to the University of Winnipeg After-Degree program. There are typically 70 After-Degree program spaces each year. Booth University College students will compete for these spaces. Applicants should be aware that they will typically require a GPA well in excess of 2.5 to be competitive in the annual selection process. Applicants must have completed coursework in two teachable subject areas and have experience working with children of the age group they wish to teach.

Booth University College students must adhere to all regular application procedures and the deadline of February 15th.
