Post-grad programs at the college level (also known as Graduate Certificate programs) are designed for individuals who have already completed a university degree or college diploma, or who have extensive career experience, but lack formal educational credentials.
Typically, post-grad programs are one to two years in length and provide hands-on, practical skills and experience that compliments the theoretical aspects of a university degree. Many programs offer students the opportunity to gain related work experience via a practicum component, internship or coop work term.

University/College Collaborative Programs
Educational institutions recognize the importance and value of both applied and theoretical learning. Today there are many joint initiatives between universities and college to provide students with the best of both worlds. Students enrolled in a collaborative program would complete requirements for both a university and college program over the course of four years.
