Program Codes and Statuses Defined

What is a program code?

A program code is made up of a letter and 3 numbers and is a shorthand reference to a program’s full name. Wherever you see a program listed throughout our website, you’ll see its accompanying program code. For example: Culinary Management Program (H100)

How to read a program code

Program codes are made up of a letter and a number. The letter represents which Academic Centre the program belongs to while the number represents the credential that a student will obtain upon graduating. For example, H100 is a diploma program in our Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts.
