Bermuda College Pathways to a Bachelor's Degree

Bermuda College (BC) has established a number of pathways so that you can earn a Bachelor's Degree.  You can transfer all your credits from your BC Associate's Degree, study two additional years at an institution abroad, and complete your Bachelor's Degree. 

BC has more than 30 agreements and partnerships with colleges and universities in Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the West Indies/Caribbean Islands.

If you are interested in a school that is not on our list, BC course transfers must be worked out on a case-by-case basis.

To facilitate a smooth transition to the transfer school, students are encouraged to make an appointment with the Bermuda College Career and Counselling Centre (CCC).
