You are invited to apply to the Bachelor Education Indigenous cohort reserved for students who identify as First Nations, Inuit or Métis — limited seats available. Please indicate your desire to be part of this cohort in your Letter of Introduction application document.

Program information

The Indigenous cohort is comprised of the same courses as the TRU BEd program, but students in the Indigenous cohort take three program courses with only the Indigenous cohort and an Indigenous faculty member teaching it. Indigenous worldviews and perspectives are honoured with support from the Indigenous community at TRU.

There are learning opportunities for practicum placements in Indigenous schools and also working with Elders.

Admission requirements

You need a minimum of 60 credits to qualify with five courses in specific subject areas (English Literature, English Composition, Mathematics, Science, and Canadian Studies).

Please contact us if you are close to meeting the admission requirements as student applications are assessed individually and holistically.
