What is non-degree study at York?

Non-degree study offers courses, programs or organized learning experiences usually taken after a degree is obtained to enhance personal or professional goals. Non-degree courses do not count towards a York University degree.

Benefits of non-degree study

  • allows you to pursue areas of professional or personal interest or to enhance your professional qualifications in an increasingly competitive and rapidly changing labour market;
  • offers a broad spectrum of courses - many of which are focussed on areas of industry not traditionally served by the academic community; and
  • provides courses to help improve your chances for admission to degree studies at York University (see Continuing Education below).
