Why Choose a Pre-Professional Program at the UofL?

Pre-Professional Transfer Programs

Pre-professional transfer programs at uLethbridge facilitate a jump start on your professional career in a smaller, more personal environment than some of the larger universities. Through arrangements between the University of Lethbridge and professional Faculties at other universities, transfer programs have been established that will prepare students for admission to professional programs offered at other institutions.

Not only will you save money on things like tuition and your cost of living, but you’ll also have access to the professors teaching your classes — and writing your textbooks — and the opportunity to participate in research as an undergraduate student.

These programs are intended to give students priority access to courses satisfying the programs recommended by the professional schools. While these programs have been designed to transfer seamlessly to our partner universities, they are not exclusive and could be used to transfer to other professional schools. Students should seek advice from the school to which they intend to transfer if this is their intent.

Why uLethbridge?

University is an exciting time. It’s a time to pursue your interests, explore the world, make new friends and discover opportunities you never knew existed.

When you’re choosing a university, look for a place that both challenges and supports you. Look for a place that encourages you to be the best version of you. Look for a place where you can ask your professor questions. A place where you can participate in research & hands-on learning and take a range of classes that will not only count towards your degree but also inspire you.

In the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Lethbridge, we offer our students an unparalleled education — one where each and every student receives the best educational experience.

Students also benefit from the flexibility of an interdisciplinary education — you can take a range of courses and will explore different disciplines, examine contemporary issues, develop exceptional critical thinking skills and become a global citizen. And as a further enhancement to your degree, you will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on work experience through our Co-operative Education & Applied Studies programs, independent studies and international exchanges.

Our Faculty & Their Research

Our professors are distinguished teachers and world-renowned researchers who bring their research into the classroom to share with you. In many instances, you will learn directly from the book they wrote. Moreover, as an undergraduate student, there will be many opportunities to participate in research alongside your professors. You will play a significant role in the discoveries of today and tomorrow while gaining skills that are transferable to the workforce.

They are dedicated and inspired educators who encourage students to strive for excellence not only in the classroom but in the way they apply their knowledge to their communities and careers.

Students are supported in pursuing opportunities, both within and outside their regular classroom studies, to push the boundaries of their abilities.
