Please note: Admission to the Diploma/Master of Education stream does not equal admission to the fast-track diploma option. Fast-track acceptance means you will enter clinical year after one year at TRU. Acceptance into the Diploma/Master of Education stream means you will enter clinical after at least two years at TRU. If you change your academic/career path (e.g. you decide to just do the diploma and not the Master of Education) you cannot switch into the the fast-track stream without first applying for that stream. You are not guaranteed a seat in the fast-track stream.
