Degrees and Programs

Degrees in Canada

Colleges and Universities issue degrees, diplomas and certificates, depending on the nature of the institutions and the length of the programs. At universities and university colleges, there is an emphasis on degree programs. Applied degrees are offered by some colleges. At all other institutions, the priority is on diploma and certificate programs.

Diploma and Certificate Programs - Associate Degree (1-2 years)

Colleges and institutes offer diploma and certificate programs, while some offer degrees in areas of particular specialization. Where they are offered, degree programs may be two-year associate degrees or four-year applied degrees. Generally speaking, University diplomas and certificates require one or two years of study in a specific field or discipline. However, these programs vary widely from institution to institution, and from province to province.

Community colleges are government-regulated post-secondary institutions offering one- to two-year academic and pre-professional certificates, diplomas, two-year associate's degrees and even three- and four-year specialized bachelor's degrees. Thousands of international students come to Canada for community college study each year.

Canada's community colleges are also sometimes called institutes, institutes of technology, technical colleges, regional colleges; CEGEPS (an acronym for Collège d’enseignement general et professionnel) in Québec, university colleges or simply colleges. You can also transfer their Certificate or Associate's Degree from a Community College to a bachelor degree granting institution for further study.

Undergraduate – Bachelor’s Degree (three-five years)

A Bachelor degree is awarded by colleges and universities. Successful completion of the secondary school program is the normal requirement for admission to undergraduate study. Bachelor's degrees in Canada normally require three or four years of full-time study, depending on the province or whether the program is general or specialized. At some universities, an honours degree may require an additional year of study.

Postgraduate Diploma

A postgraduate diploma is a relatively shorter qualification than a masters degree. A postgraduate diploma is most commonly offered outside of the U.S. Graduate diplomas are earned after students complete bachelor’s degree programs. Among the rapidly rising number of international students that land in Canada every year, approximately 70% of the students enroll for a postgraduate diploma.

Postgraduate – Master's Degree

A master's degree is awarded by colleges and universities. The Master’s programs in Canada are known for their research-focused curriculum. A majority of Masters Programs also offers practical experience in the forms of Co-op placements and industry-based projects or internships. Many colleges and universities offer one- or two-year postgraduate diploma and certificate programs to students who wish to get their undergraduate degree with specialized training. The main structure of the Canadian Master’s programs is also flexible to meet students’ needs and goals.

Doctoral Degree

The normal qualification for a doctoral program is a master's degree. However, students have been allowed, in special circumstances, to pass directly from an honors bachelor's program into a doctoral program. A minimum of three years and up to four or five years of study and research, are the normal requirements for a doctorate. The degree is generally known as a Ph.D.; however, doctoral degrees in Canada may also be granted in particular fields of study such as music (D.Mus.) or law (LLD).
