- Otherwise, find your courses online, and review the course information and available offerings. If you are planning to register online, use the "Add to Cart" button to speed up the registration process.
Step 2: Meet the requirements
To be successful in BCIT's fast-paced applied learning environment, it is strongly recommended that students have English proficiency in all four language skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. English requirements are program-specific. Find your program online and refer to the program entry details.
If your course or program does not have a specific English requirement, two years of education in English in an English-speaking country and English 12 are strongly recommended for success.
