BCIT named best Continuing Studies Institute for the second year in a row

BCIT has been voted first place in the Continuing Studies Institution category of the annual Stars of Vancouver Readers’ Choice Awards from Vancouver is Awesome. This marks the second consecutive year that BCIT has received this award, which recognizes the strength of the Institute in providing industry-focused and flexible upskilling options to help learners quickly advance into in-demand jobs in Canada.

At BCIT, Continuing Studies is referred to as ‘Flexible Learning’. BCIT Flexible Learning offers a variety of course and program options during the day, in the evening, or a bit of both. Most regular Flexible Learning courses carry college-level credit. Students can work towards a BCIT credential, or transfer their earned credit to programs at other BC post-secondary institutions. With more than 1,000 courses to pick from, you can start with a course or study full-time, the choice is yours. And with new learning options like microcredentials and free online courses, building your resume has never been easier.

If you’re not sure if BCIT Flexible Learning is for you or not, here’s four things to note.

Start with one course and ladder up to a credential

Whether you’re on the fence about choosing the right program or simply too busy to take up a full-time courseload, BCIT Flexible Learning offers you the flexibility to tailor your learning to your needs. From part-time courses to microcredentials, learners have the opportunity to take a single course and ladder up to a credential – whether it be a certificate, diploma, or degree. BCIT Flexible Learning is a low-barrier approach to help you grow your skills to advance your career.

An option for professionals seeking career growth

Flexible Learning provides short, accredited courses designed to meet industry needs. With the option to complete credentials course-by-course, individuals can progress at their own pace.
