KPU introduces new zero textbook cost program in design

August 2, 2019

Kwantlen Polytechnic University has introduced a one-year Foundations in Design certificate program that will use library materials and open textbooks. The program is reportedly the first fully zero textbook-cost program of its kind in Canada, and the sixth ZTC program launched at KPU. “We would like to continue to support our students with the ability to save on costs for their education and this has been further enhanced by expanding access to other digital resources and online subscriptions,” says Andhra Goundrey, interim dean of the Wilson School of Design at KPU. “We also have another twenty-plus courses in our other design programs that are listed as ZTC for this Fall 2019 with more to come in the future.” KPU | CBC (BC)
