The distinction between the roles of colleges and universities is not as clear as it once was. Today we live in a society where applied skills and theoretical knowledge must be integrated. Employers are looking for doers, thinkers, creators and leaders – all in one person. As the postsecondary landscape continues to change, we can expect to see expanded pathways and more blended program options than ever before.

At Georgian’s University Partnership Centre, we understand the world is changing. We know that students like you are looking for increasingly flexible options. That’s why we provide our own degrees and graduate certificates, as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees with seven partner institutions. We also partner with select universities to offer an ever-growing number of transfer credit options and articulation agreements with institutions around the world.

We have a vast array of programs and services in place to ensure that you succeed.
