Continuing Education at York

Continuing education courses, programs or organized learning experiences are usually taken after a degree is obtained to enhance personal or professional goals. York offers only non-degree continuing education courses. In other words, continuing education courses will not count toward a York University degree.

Benefits of Continuing Education:

  • Enhance your professional/personal qualifications in an competitive and rapidly changing labour market;
  • Take broader range of courses – many of which are focused on areas of industry not traditionally served by the academic community; and
  • Improve your chances for admission to degree studies at York University (see Continuing Education below).
  • A more flexible way to learn while you work, with N.O.W. Plus (Nights, Online and Weekends, plus specialized supports) which helps working professionals achieve success and earn a degree faster.

How to Apply

You don't apply for any Continuing Education courses through the Office of Admissions. Details about applying are specific to each Faculty offering the courses. See the list below for more specific information about what's offered and how to apply.

Access & Bridging Programs

York University offers transition and bridging programs to enable individuals who would not otherwise consider, or who may not have had access to, university studies develop the skills and the confidence to continue their education.
