Academic Programmes

All institutions of higher learning offer academic programmmes, they comprise the core, required, and elective courses or modules that lead any degree-granting (Undergraduate, Graduate, or Certificate) that has been assigned a unique classification of instructional programme code. An academic programme is a combination of courses and related activities organized for the achievement of specific learning outcomes as defined by the University/higher institution of learning.

Certificate Programmes

Community or technical colleges typically offer academic certificate programs. These types of academic programs generally prepare students to enter a vocation after the certificate is awarded. Some certificate-based academic programs combine classroom instruction with hands-on experience to teach students a specific trade or skill. Other certificate programs are offered at the graduate level and add additional credentials to an individual's existing degree. Certificate programs take anywhere from a few weeks to two years to complete.
