Students at UBC Okanagan's Faculty of Education have won a reprieve.
A teaching program that was set to be cancelled will continue, at least for another year.
The university's governing body, the Senate, met Thursday to vote on suspending the intake for the Elementary Teacher’s Education Program (ETEP) in 2016.
Instead, at the request of the Faculty of Education, the suspension date was moved forward a year to 2017.
Students who had been working for years, preparing and taking the correct classes to enter the program were distraught earlier this month after being told their applications were null and void.
The change in policy follows consultations with the students.
