Upgrade your skills for academic and career success with the Adult Basic Education University Preparation (ABEUP) program.
While taking the Adult Basic Education Provincial Level (Grade 12 Equivalency) courses, you can enroll in up to three first-year university courses, which can be used to both satisfy the Adult Dogwood requirements and meet post-secondary program requirements.
Courses offered include biology, chemistry, computer science, education and career planning, English, First Nations studies, Indigenous People’s Knowledge, math, and physics.
For complete program information, see the UFV Academic Calendar.
This program is for students who have not graduated. Students who do have their high school graduation can apply to Qualifying Studies.
For information on Adult Basic Education courses that transfer to other BC post-secondary institutions, see the Adult Basic Education Transfer Guide.
Upgrading your education is your passport to better job prospects.
On average, Canadians with a high school diploma earn 25% more than those without. The average earnings are even higher with a university diploma, certificate or degree.
Those without a high school diploma are more likely to be unemployed, especially during economic downturns. Many employers now specify post-secondary education as a minimum qualification for employment, even if a degree or college diploma exceeds the actual skills requirements of their entry-level jobs.
