About University Canada West

Established in 2004 as a fully-accredited, private Canadian university, University Canada West (UCAN) offers an exciting new approach for students to obtain a university degree. Accelerated programs, based on market-driven curriculum and a flexible model of delivery give students the ability to pursue an education that suits their needs.

UCAN is a fully-accredited Canadian university that operates under the authority of the British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education, on recommendation of the British Columbia Degree Quality Assessment Board (DQAB).

Our academic year is broken into four 10-week terms: fall, winter, spring and summer. This system allows you to take more courses each year than you could under a standard 4-month semester system, yet all our courses have 40 contact hours slightly more than the standard university program. You can get your standard degree in 2 years a full 2 years sooner than anywhere else.

Online Programs:

  • Bachelor of Commerce - General Studies
  • Bachelor of Commerce - Technology Management
  • Bachelor of Arts - Media & Communication
  • Master of Business Administration

University Canada West has introduced a number of innovations to make university education more accessible to both domestic and international students. This includes a Guaranteed Admission Program that sets a 65% average as the prerequisite for admission to UCAN undergraduate programs as well as a three-month term system to allow students to complete their degrees faster in some cases, in just two years than they would if they were in other universities.
