Picking a career can be a tough decision. At Douglas, you can explore your options while earning credits you can put towards a credential, with the assurance that you’re putting your time and money to good use.
Douglas gives you the opportunity to interact with your classmates and ask your professors questions about what you’re learning. It’s harder to get that in first- or second-year classes at university, where there are sometimes up to 500 students per class.
Maybe you’re a joiner – or maybe you aren’t. Either way, if you like being where you can get to know people and have them call you by name, you’ll love the smaller community at Douglas.
Universities often require high grades to get in, while colleges are more flexible. If university is your ultimate goal, you can still start at Douglas and then transfer your credits, if chosen carefully, to a university.
Douglas offers some of the lowest tuition fees in the province. If you’re planning on getting a degree from a university, you can save almost $4,500 by doing your first two years at Douglas and then transferring. Double that if you stay at Douglas to complete a four-year bachelor’s degree.
