TRU Science

Fast Track Stream

If you already have a Bachelor of Science (BSc) or associate of science degree, you can apply to the fast-track option. Please note that we have many qualified BSc applicants and it is less likely that applicants with an associate science degree will be accepted into the fast-track option.

In the fast-track option, you will directly enter year two of the diploma program after successfully completing three online courses over the summer, as well as a medical terminology course. There are six courses per semester in the first year. From September to October, as a fast-track student, you will have additional labs to complete—equaling an extra three to four hours per week. These labs are related to the distance RESP 1781 course and are usually completed by the beginning of November.

The clinical internship is completed in your final—or second—year.
