NON-CREDIT AND CREDIT OPTIONS

 

Non-Credit Courses

Non-credit courses are an excellent way to build your professional skills or explore an interest. These courses and programs require no application and are easily accessible. Simply register and attend class. Non-credit courses do not apply towards university credit or undergraduate degrees.

In some cases, non-credit courses can be applied towards education units or designation requirements. Check the course details for more information.

Some post-degree and french immersion credit courses can be taken for non-credit. If you would like to earn credit or complete the diploma you must apply for admission. Contact us for more information.

 

Credit Courses

Our credit courses allow you to earn academic credit that is applied toward a diploma program or degree. To enrol in a diploma credit course, students must apply and be accepted to both Western University and the program.

We recommend checking with your intended degree program before registering for a credit course to make sure your credits will apply.

 

TIME COMMITMENT

Time commitment varies between courses and programs. Typically, students can expect to spend an additional 3-6 hours per week, outside of regular class time on homework, assignment and textbook readings. Check the course details for more information.
