Selkirk Signs Transfer Agreement with Royal Roads

Victoria's School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Opened Up to Selkirk Grads


Graduating Selkirk College students in three Nelson-based Hospitality & Tourism programs will now have an opportunity to carry forward their education thanks to a new deal signed with Royal Roads University.

After months of preparation, Selkirk College senior management has completed a memorandum of understanding with the Victoria-based university that allows students in the Resort & Hotel Management Program, Culinary Management, and Ski Resort Operations & Management diploma programs to move towards obtaining a bachelor’s degree.

“This is the result of our ongoing relationship with Royal Roads and a validation of the quality of the programming we hold within our School of Hospitality & Tourism,” says Bob Falle, Chair of the Selkirk College School of Hospitality & Tourism.

The transfer agreement will put students directly into their third year of study in either the BA in International Hotel Management or the BA in Global Tourism Management at Royal Roads University. The pathway also opens up the option of further education with a Master of Arts’ degree in Tourism Management.
