What We Do

Add.a.little.PURPLE.to.your.worldContinuing Studies at Western specializes in adult learning. We understand the unique needs of adults and design all of our courses and programs with those needs in mind. We know that one of the greatest challenges facing adults who want to return to or continue learning is a fear of failure, and we go to great lengths to provide an environment that will enable students to be successful, while at the same time challenging them to push their boundaries. Designing innovative, unique and exciting programs, and choosing exceptional instructors who understand adult learning are the most important things we do; this is what sets us apart as a leader in continuing education.

Professional and Personal DevelopmentCourses and programs in personal and professional development are designed with your career and life aspirations in mind. This category of courses and programs can be further defined as follows: Individual Courses With few exceptions, all of the courses that we offer at Continuing Studies can be taken as stand-alone courses. These courses offer the best of the academic world and the real world, blending cutting edge research and exceptional instruction with applicable skills. While many courses are not evaluated-no tests, exams or assignments-others do involve testing, assignments, and group work. Please note that there is no application process for these courses; simply register online or over the telephone and we will look after the rest. Professional Certificates We offer a wide variety of professional and personal development programs designed to build on your educational or work experience and take your career or personal interests to a new level. There is no application process for our Professional Certificates; simply register online or over the telephone and we will look after the rest. Students are not required to enrol in the entire program, however the Professional Certificate will only be awarded upon successful completion of all requirements in a program. Many of the courses that form a professional certificate have been developed to meet the standards of various professional organizations (e.g. HRPAO, PMI, ADR Institute of Ontario, CIM). For details on how you can use our courses to achieve a professional designation, please contact our office.

CertificatesCertificate programs are designed for practitioners who have at least two years experience in the field in question or a related area. These programs can be completed on a part-time basis over three years and help practitioners improve their career-related knowledge and skills and attain a recognized University credential. Please note that there is an application process for these programs, however interested individuals may take up to two certificate-credit courses prior to applying for formal admission. After students have completed two courses, they are required to apply and be admitted to both The University of Western Ontario, as well as to the certificate program itself.

Post-degree Diploma ProgramsPost-degree diploma programs are designed primarily for recent university graduates or individuals with little or no work experience in the field in question. These programs are typically one full year in length and link career-specific skills with the more theoretical knowledge obtained in undergraduate studies. In most cases, these programs include worksite placements that provide students with an opportunity to gain real world experience in their chosen career. Please note that there is an application process for these programs; students must be admitted to both The U
