Are you unable to attend school either full-time or part-time? Would you like to gain new knowledge and skills or upgrade old ones?

Learn at home or at the office with distance and online courses from BCIT. All courses carry the same credit value as classroom-based courses and offer the same skills training that comes from in-person education. Most online courses are paced and highly interactive with participation requirements weekly.

For further information about studying at a distance with BCIT, you can select from the various articles and FAQs using the left menu bar.
