What is a post-baccalaureate certificate?
A post-baccalaureate certificate is a college-level credential acquired by individuals wishing to update their skills, learn a new technology, or learn the management side of their industry. This higher level of certification can help you achieve a career change, a promotion, or improve your knowledge of your industry in as little as eight months.
To be considered for a post-baccalaureate certificate, we usually require you to have a three- or four-year degree.

Is a post-baccalaureate certificate certificate right for you?
A post-baccalaureate certificate is an academic, college credit program that is different from continuing education or traditional graduate studies.
- I’ve completed a bachelor’s degree but don’t feel I’m career-ready. Just as your bachelor’s degree was an excellent opportunity to develop academically, theoretically, and culturally, a post-baccalaureate certificate can give you practical, hands-on, work-ready skills that align with what you’ve learned in your degree program.
- I’ve immigrated to Canada and want a Canadian credential. If you’ve already completed post-secondary (college or university) studies in your previous country, a post-baccalaureate certificate is an excellent way to supplement your previous education with a higher-level Canadian credential from a nationally-recognized public college.
