Being a working adult with a degree doesn’t mean you can’t go back to being a student. You can even be a student in another country! With Douglas’ post-degree diplomas, you won’t have to start back at square one.
Why do a PDD or PBD?
Taking a Post-Degree Diploma (PDD) or a Post Baccalaureate Diploma (PBD) is a great investment, especially if you want to accomplish your goals as quickly as possible.
Taking part in a PDD or PBD is quicker than starting in first year all over again. As an international student, you are also able to present your existing credential, which is your Bachelor’s degree. This saves you a lot of time. The PDD and PBD just allows you to explore what Canada’s expectations are.
In addition to being a short program that allows you to explore Canada’s work environment, it also saves you a lot of money. Douglas College has competitive tuition fees, which is why many students also take their pathways.
In the end, you will be successful with a PDD or PBD. They guarantee that they’ll equip you with the knowledge you need to start working in Canada.
New Ways to Study at Douglas
Douglas has a lot to offer its students. They have part-time studies, concurrent studies, and university transfer pathways. Most notably, the school offers PDD and PBD.
