Program Types

Diploma/Certificate Programs

Diploma/Certificate Programs are 1, 2 or 3 academic years in duration. Most programs have start dates in September and/or January.

Graduate Certificates

Graduate Certificates are postgraduate programs offered for students who have already graduated from a university or college. These are highly specialized 8- or 12-month programs designed to give graduates advanced skills in a specific professional field.

​With more college and university graduates entering the job market, a career-focused postgraduate program is a competitive advantage. In fewer than 12 months, your theoretical learning is enhanced with up-to-the-minute work skills, on-the-job experience and industry connections through field education. For working professionals, our postgraduate programs can also open doors of opportunity into new or related fields.

Degree Programs

Degree Programs are offered in Financial Services, Hospitality, Construction Management, Early Childhood Development, Behaviour Analysis, and Interpretation. These are four-year Bachelor Degree programs, combining theoretical learning with opportunities for field education.

EAP (ESL) Program

George Brown’s ESL program, English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is a full-time program divided into 9 levels of 8 weeks each.

Most students study for 6-10 months. The program prepares you for further academic study at the College and allows applicants from eligible countries to apply for conditional admission to George Brown's postsecondary programs.
