When you are a university transfer student at Langara, you earn the same course credit as you would in university. Many students find this is a good option because the tuition is lower compared to university and the classes are smaller with year-round enrolment.
More students transfer from Langara to the University of British Columbia than from any other college. Students can also transfer to Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria, and other universities in British Columbia through transfer agreements organized by the BC Council on Admission and Transfer (BCCAT). You can also transfer to other institutions where we have degree partnerships or with permission from the university.
Post-degree diploma (PDD) programs are designed for students who have a bachelor’s degree and want to enhance and broaden their professional skills. These post-baccalaureate programs are valuable to domestic students who want to upgrade their qualifications and to international students who want to come to Canada and further their studies in a concentrated format.
Post-degree programs are available in Regular Studies and Continuing Studies.
Career programs prepare you for the workplace with hands-on training from industry professionals. These programs are usually 1 or 2 years long and you will earn a Diploma or Certificate upon completion. Many Diploma and Certificate programs have limited enrolment and students may need to meet additional admission requirements. Some career programs have only one or two enrolment periods each year.
Career programs are available in Regular Studies and Continuing Studies. Work experience, paid or unpaid, is often part of our career programs.
