Whether you are just beginning your post-secondary studies or have already completed a credential and want to enhance your resumé, our Tourism programs can help you meet your educational and professional goals. Get started in tourism management, hospitality administration and outdoor recreation and leverage your existing tourism Industry experience.

While you can choose from many OL and TRU courses to fulfill your program requirements, you can also access post-secondary courses from other institutions and transfer them to your OL program. See BC Council on Admissions & Transfer (BCCAT) to explore your options.

Plan ahead and make the most of your Tourism credential. Our Program Advisors help you choose courses that can later be applied toward another program, either at OL or elsewhere.

Before Registering or Applying

Read about distance education and course delivery formats. Look at the program descriptions, which state the admission requirements (if any) and residency requirements. Familiarize yourself with the course descriptions, too. Note the estimated program costs, and consider how you can fund your education.

Financial Assistance

You can apply for financial assistance if you meet specific place-of-residence requirements. If you are a full-time program student, you may be eligible to apply for an award, scholarship, bursary or grant. See Student Awards & Financial Support.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)

If you have applied for or been admitted to a Tourism program, you may be eligible for credit based on an assessment of your prior learning. PLAR allows you to earn academic credits for knowledge, training and skills gained through your work and life experience.
