The School of Continuing Studies provides meaningful continuing education opportunities which combine guided instruction with practical application. Our programs are designed to develop the well-rounded professionals that employers value with both the deep discipline-based knowledge and the broad skills required to communicate and be effective within a multidisciplinary team. With a variety of options to suit your learning style and schedule, adding a recognized, respected credential such as a York University professional certificate has never been more convenient.
If you plan to pursue a degree, our academic bridging courses and English Language Institute can prepare you for success. We also offer the N.O.W. Plus Degree Pathway which supports mature students in completing a degree online or part-time at night and on weekends. In some cases, professional certificates may be counted as transfer credit towards degree studies. Talk to us about your goals. We’re here to help.
