Post-Graduate Pathways

Western Community College > Post-Graduate Pathways

Western Community College’s post-graduate pathways enable you to continue your education at a Canadian college or university with transferable credits from WCC.

How it Works:

  • Take a course at WCC.
  • Transfer your course credits earned at WCC towards our block-transfer partner’s degree program.
  • Complete your degree program and apply for Post Graduation Word Permit (PGWP) to secure a job in Canada for a maximum of 3 years after graduation*.
