Why Choose This Territory
The BC-Yukon Transfer System
Yukon College belongs to the British Columbia transfer system. The BC Transfer System allows students to undertake studies at one school and then transfer seamlessly to another. This means an easier 2nd or 3rd year admission to some of the most competitive universities in the country, including UBC and SFU. It also allows for students to obtain multiple degrees and – in many cases – quicker immigration to Canada
