Students can transfer to university with credits of college in Vietnam or Canada. In this case, university in Canada approves entrance with admitted credits.
The way to transfer to university is after graduation of college in Vietnam or to transfer through college Canada, or to transfer through conditional admission of private language school. University in Canada usually requires certificate of high school, transcript of high school and college, and English test results such as TOEFL or IELTS.
Advantage of Transfer

However, advantage of transfer could be disadvantage in case of poor language skill or difficult of adjustment, so students should consider which option is the best for them.
Type of Transfer
- Transfer to University from Vietnam
It is difficult to transfer from university in Vietnam to university in Canada, so it is the best option to transfer to university linked with local one. In case of transfer to graduate school with same major, it can usually accept student to entrance with lower TOEFL scores than standard, but it would be quite difficult if students change their major. The concept of transfer to university in Canada is authorization of academic credit that students received in Vietnam, it is not important what year students can be in. After deciding the program to apply, it should be checked how many credits are admitted.
Each university has different assessment standard and all students have different situation such as nationality, education background, major, completed course, so the credit which can be transferred can be different depending on universities even they are same program.
Therefore, second year student in Vietnam cannot transfer to third year in Canada, but it is important how many credits can be transferred.
- Transfer to University after Entrance College
It is much easier to transfer to university in second or third year after graduating college than the way to transfer from Vietnam right away. It is preferred for students who have low English level or grades in previous school.
Most of the colleges require only certificate of high school and entrance grades, and colleges connected with university have University Transfer Program.
* University Transfer Programs

However, most of the universities admit credits when students get good grades over than B+. It is common route to transfer from college to university because of the characteristic that graduation is more important than entrance in Canada, and many students are trying to transfer to prestigious universities.
- Entrance University with Conditional Admission
