Who it’s for

Studying part time with BCIT Flexible Learning might be for you if:

  • you want to take a single course to explore an interest
  • you can’t commit to a full-time, day school program
  • you want to work toward a credential at your own pace

Studying on a part-time basis at BCIT allowed me to gain work experience in Canada while putting into practice the new tools and skills obtained in my courses.

How it works

Take a single course to explore an interest or learn a new skill, or work toward completing a credential, course by course.

Part-time programs

Registration into part-time programs is a little different than for full-time programs. With part-time programs, you can start by registering for an individual course, then fill out a Program Declaration form when you’re ready to commit. Applications are processed throughout the year.
