Academic Advisor speaking to student

Transfer

By transferring to Brescia University College, you will enhance your education through our small class sizes, compassionate staff and faculty and experiential learning opportunities. Whether you’re transferring from college, university or you’re an international transfer, you’ll find a home at Canada’s only women’s university. 

Brescia is affiliated with Western University, one of the largest universities in the province. Our students benefit from a small, supportive atmosphere at Brescia while having accesses to resources at Western. Upon graduation, students receive their degree from Western.

University

Follow the guidelines below to determine your eligibility for admission when transfering from Brescia to another university.

If you had a minimum overall average of 70% at your previous accredited university we will consider you for transfer to Brescia. If our grading system differs from that at your previous university, we will convert your grades to Western University’s equivalents.

Transfer Credits

When applying to Brescia, your previous course work will be reviewed to determine which credits may be transferred. Advanced standing may be granted for courses completed at another university with a minimum mark of 60%. Brescia will assess all applications on an individual basis and can transfer a maximum of 10.0 courses. Please note that the Admissions Office may require submission of official course outlines/syllabi to determine course equivalency.

Brescia and Western University has joined with six Ontario Universities to ensure a smooth process for students to get credit for courses already completed.

  • McMaster University
  • Queen’s University

If you have earned a first degree equivalent to at least a 15.0 course credits at Western with a minimum average of 60% (in the context of Western’s grading system) then you are eligible to apply for admission to take courses at Brescia for credit as a Special Student.

Students who have an undergraduate degree from another accredited university and who intend to either upgrade from a non-honours to an honours degree or complete the requirements for a second honours degree in another discipline, must apply for general admission to Brescia as a “Special Student”.

If you have an undergraduate degree from another accredited university and intend to either upgrade to an honours degree or complete the requirements for a second honours degree in another discipline, we would ask you to apply to Brescia as a Special Student. The only exception to this case is for those pursuing our Foods & Nutrition undergraduate program.
