Post-Grad Programs & Continuing Education

What are Post-Grad Programs?

Ontario Colleges offer post-graduate (also known as post-diploma) programs for students who have already completed university or college degree or diploma. These programs are of relatively short duration (usually one to two years of full-time study) and offer intensive training and practical experience in specific career areas.

Many colleges also offer certificate programs that are geared more toward individuals who want to continue to work full-time while simultaneously furthering their education in the evening or on weekends.
