If the prospect of a bachelor’s degree seems like a distant goal, consider planning your studies in stages. Complete a certificate or diploma program first and then continue on with the requirements for the BGS.
Laddering is the term used when you earn a certificate or diploma and incorporate the courses taken into the requirements for a subsequent credential. For example, if you have graduated with a certificate or diploma from one of Canada’s public postsecondary institutions you can ladder those studies into the BGS.
Some examples of UFV programs that have laddered into the BGS:
• Agriculture Technology diploma
• Applied Business Technology certificate
• Associate of Arts degree
• Early Childhood Education certificate
• General Studies Diploma
• Library Information Technology diploma
• Social Services Diploma
