There are many paths to your goal...


The choices you make that impact your academic career are among the most important of your life. That’s why you need a Plan B — recognizing the fact that there are many paths which lead to the same goal.

Missed an application deadline? A high-demand program was filled up? You didn’t have sufficient resources to attend full-time this year? Many challenges can stand in your way of reaching your goals. That’s why you need to speak with an education institution that has helped redefine the term ‘learning options’. Algonquin College can help.

For instance, take a look at our GAP (Global Studies Program), an innovative option offering recent high school graduates the chance to gain life skills and enjoy new experiences that lead to a better understanding of the world.

This one-year Ontario College Certificate program, delivered over twenty-six weeks, prepares you for a successful transition into the next stage of your education and beyond.

Algonquin College prides itself on offering a flexible approach to acquiring the skills you need for the job you want.


Some full-time programs offer options for online learning and allow you to transfer to full-time on-campus programs in the second year. For instance, the Business Administration program is available online on a part-time and full-time basis. Students in the part-time program can transfer into the full-time program — and all part-time courses credited are applied to the full-time program.

In addition, part-time online options can help you catch up on specific skills while you consider options for the following year.

Co-op education provides practical career experience, helping you understand more about your chosen professional field. In-class study and training are immediately reinforced and applied in work assignments. You have an ongoing opportunity to evaluate and assess your career choice, ensuring your future career satisfaction. Plus, co-op enables you to earn income, learn about managing your finances, and helps defray some of your educational expenses.

When you’re considering a Plan A or Plan B, consider Algonquin College — and stay flexible!
