For more information, please see complete program description.

  • A transformation has occurred in the post-secondary education system making it more difficult to distinguish between universities and colleges. In the past, higher education in Ontario consisted of universities which conferred degrees and colleges which gave certificates or diplomas.

    Here are a few differences between the two systems in Ontario:

    • Generally speaking, programs offered by colleges are not identical to those offered by universities.
    • University studies are theoretical and academic in nature while college studies tend to be more practical and career oriented
    • Universities can grant degrees (bachelor, Master, and doctorate) while colleges grant certificates, diplomas, and in some cases, bachelor degrees.

    See the following website for more information: http://settlement.org/ontario/education/colleges-universities-and-institutes/what-is-post-secondary-education/what-is-the-difference-between-college-and-university-in-canada/.

  • An applicant having completed studies in a similar program may be enrolled at an advanced stage (past the first-year mark, as the case may be). For more information on advanced placement, contact the Admissions Office by email only at admissions@collegeboreal.ca.

    Your schedule varies depending on whether you are studying full-time or part-time. The number of hours you spend in the classroom depends on your program and student status.

    At Collège Boréal, courses generally take place from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Each program may have a different schedule. You may have classes in the morning, in the afternoon, or in the evening, and you may even have a free day.

    Boréal en ligne courses combine two learning modes: synchronous (in real time) and asynchronous (offline). Synchronous sessions are held using Zoom, a web conferencing tool that allows for real-time interaction between faculty and students. These web conferences are held weekly or biweekly depending on the program. In addition, they are offered in the evening to accommodate those who work during the day. You are responsible for making yourself available to attend your classes.

    Remember that your class schedule will change each semester, so make sure you are prepared for this change.

    Collège Boréal strives to minimize schedule changes once they are posted to the portal. However, unavoidable situations may affect your course schedule. We appreciate your patience and cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience.
