Pacific Coast University opens

September 9, 2011

Last Tuesday marked the official opening of the Pacific Coast University for Workplace Health Sciences, which will focus on areas such as disability management, occupational safety, and rehabilitation. A key proponent of the Port Alberni, BC institution says the school will operate similarly to Royal Roads University -- much of the instruction will occur online, with students required to be on-site for a period of time each year. The university's first student intake will not likely happen until September 2013. The application for the first degree program should be ready in the first half of 2012.
