Apprenticeship programs offer combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction under the supervision of a journey-level craft person or trade professional in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly-skilled occupation.
Certificate programs take between six and 12 months of full-time studies to complete.
Diploma programs take two to three years of full-time studies to complete.
An associate degree (AD) is a two-year program made up of 20 university transfer courses.
A bachelor's degree is a four-year degree. It's also called an undergraduate degree or a Baccalaureate degree.
An advanced diploma builds on a previously completed diploma, or on at least five years of related work experience and is equivalent to a minimum of three months of full-time study beyond a diploma.
A post-degree diploma builds on a previously completed recognized degree and is equivalent to two semesters of full-time, advanced-level studies.
A Master's (or post-graduate) degree, is earned after completion of an undergraduate degree. Typically, the master's degree requires about 30 credits of coursework and takes 2 years of full time study beyond the bachelor's degree. In addition to coursework, the master's degree sometimes entails completing comprehensive exams and/or a thesis.
A Ph.D., typically completed after a Master's degree, demonstrates a person's competence in research and qualifies them to become professors. Doctoral study offers a unique opportunity for an individual to conduct intensive and prolonged research - often over several years - on a very particular topic, which usually leads to publication. Doctoral degrees are offered in the fields of medicine, dentistry, law, education, or any other faculty of learning.
