Graduate Story

I enjoyed online learning tremendously. The instructors did an excellent job making the content interesting and engaging, yet challenging at the same time.” Fay Qian. Graduate. Professional Management specializing in Strategic Management.

Fay Qian discovered Continuing Education while working as a graduate student advisor with UCalgary’s nursing faculty. She went on to achieve three certificates in less than three years.

“I started taking courses because I wanted to keep learning. I enjoyed it so much, I kept going,” she says. “I liked that the other students were working professionals, and the great discussions we would have in class.” Fay arrived in Calgary as an international high school student from Shanghai, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Economics from the University of Toronto. After completing her degree, she returned to Calgary. Determined to never stop learning, Fay completed Continuing Education certificates in Human Resource Management, French Language and Culture Foundations, and Professional Management specializing in Strategic Management. The courses she took in her management certificate programs kindled her entrepreneurial spirit. Now, she and her husband are bringing to Canada a product that is popular in other cultures, but has yet to get established here — spiced coffee. When Fay started taking classes, she favoured the classroom format, but once she tried online learning, she discovered she enjoyed it too. “For me, online classes were more engaging than the classroom, because online, everyone has to speak up.” Despite an already full and busy life, Fay is determined to continue her education. Soon, she will embark on an MBA program. She credits her Continuing Education experience for giving her the confidence to take on her new challenges.

For most certificate programs, a minimum of a senior high school diploma and work experience are recommended, but not required.

As programs are subject to change, we recommend you apply for admission to your certificate as early as possible. Once you are admitted, you can be confident that you have locked in the requirements leading to your graduation. To enrol in a certificate program now, go to conted.ucalgary.ca/apply. When you enrol in your certificate program, you will be charged a nonrefundable fee of $95. Additional fees may apply for specific programs.

GRADING

UCALGARY ALUMNI

Student learning is assessed through assignments and examinations, and grades are assigned for each course in a program of study. Most certificate programs follow the grading standards established for undergraduate instruction at the University of Calgary.

Once you have officially graduated, you will be able to obtain an associate membership in the University of Calgary Alumni Association. More information is available at ucalgary.ca/alumni/benefits/associatealumni-membership.

In the Certificate for Emerging Leaders, student learning is assessed through the evaluation of a learning journal summary that is submitted following completion of the required number of instructional hours.

LADDERING TOWARD A DEGREE

In the Office Applications Certificate, student learning is assessed through examinations completed at the end of each course in the program of study.

GRADUATION It is the student’s responsibility to apply to graduate once all certificate requirements have been completed. In June of each year, a Continuing Education graduation ceremony is held for students who have completed their certificate requirements.

It is possible to use some certificate programs as a stepping stone towards an undergraduate degree if you can meet the faculty’s entrance requirements for undergraduate students. Several 300-hour Continuing Education certificate programs can be applied to a Minor in Workplace Learning, which will be accepted by the University of Calgary Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Kinesiology. To earn the Minor in Workplace Learning, students must also complete the course, ADL 107 Learning in the Workplace, and additional specified courses for a total of 400 hours of instruction.

Flexible learning on campus and online

At UCalgary Continuing Education, all courses and certificate programs have been developed with part-time learners in mind, making it possible for you to pace your learning to fit your life. Courses are offered in a variety of formats including classroom and online, and occasionally, blended — partially in the classroom and partially online. Some certificates are achieved completely in the classroom, others completely online. Some certificate programs give you the choice of taking your courses in either format.

TAKING COURSES IN THE CLASSROOM

TAKING COURSES ONLINE

UNCERTAIN ABOUT ONLINE LEARNING?

Main Campus 2500 University Drive NW

Learning online takes the learning experience out of the traditional classroom and on to the Internet.

Before taking your first instructor-led, interactive online course, you will be required to take BMC 352 Learning Online. This course is your chance to practise online learning in a safe environment.

Downtown Campus 906 8th Avenue SW Continuing Education courses are held at UCalgary's main and downtown campuses at times that are convenient for adult learners.

AT HOME STUDY In most certificate program classroom courses, students are expected to complete readings and assignments between classes. The number of hours needed for at-home study will vary, however, if your course includes one three-hour class each week, you should plan on spending an additional three hours per week outside of class. Please take this into account when enrolling in multiple courses at one time.

4

Most of Continuing Education’s online courses are instructor-led, interactive courses. Students work within scheduled start- and enddates and observe set timelines for learning activities and assignments. For most courses, students are free to choose when they go online during the week. However, some courses require that students attend online classes on designated dates and at designated times.

ONLINE COURSE WORKLOAD For courses that allow you to choose when you will go online, you should plan to log in to the University’s online learning software — Desire 2 Learn (D2L) — three to four times per week in order to keep pace with the class. You should plan on studying and working approximately six hours per week per course. Please take this into account when planning your term, especially if you are enrolling in multiple courses at one time.

BMC 352 LEARNING ONLINE Discover more about yourself as an online learner in a supportive environment and ultimately determine if online learning is for you. Compare your current skills, habits and technical knowledge against what’s typically required for success in Continuing Education online courses. Whatever your starting point, you will develop and improve your abilities to connect, communicate and collaborate with others online. If you have previously taken BMC 152 Learning Online, you are not required to take BMC 352 Learning Online.
