Admission Requirements

Admission to the Bachelor of Human Kinetics (B.H.K.) program is based on a competitive entry model: achievement of the minimum requirements for admission does not guarantee acceptance. Students applying to enter the program must make formal application to Enrolment Services no later than January 15.

Competitive entry will be based on an admission average calculated on the following UBC Okanagan campus-approved Grade 12 Courses (or equivalents):

  • English 12 or English 12 First Peoples;
  • Biology 12;
  • Principles of Mathematics 12 or Pre-Calculus 12;
  • One other approved Grade 12 course.

The following additional courses are required but are not used to calculate the applicant's admission average:

  • Chemistry 11 or Physics 11

Transfer Students

Students who are accepted on transfer from other institutions must normally complete all remaining courses toward the B.H.K. at the UBC Okanagan campus. A maximum of 60 transfer credits will normally be granted. The University will not grant a degree for studies that represent less than the equivalent of two regular Winter Sessions (60 credits).

In general, transfer credit is limited to the initial two years of a degree program. Credit at a more senior level may be possible if prior written permission has been granted by the Registrar. A student wishing to take courses at another institution and transfer the credit toward the UBC Okanagan campus B.H.K. degree must first obtain a letter of permission from the program. It is the student's responsibility to forward an official transcript to Enrolment Services, Undergraduate Admissions.
