University/College Programs in Europe
If you choose Europe as your destination for your University or College studies, Grand Pacific can help. We partner with some of the best schools all across Europe to find you a program that meets your career goals.
Whether you want to take a short term program and travel through Europe or earn a prestigious degree at one of Europe’s famous Universities we can help. Your options will include:
Certificate Programs (C)
Certificate Programs are a great way to earn academic credentials in a short period of time (usually less than a year) to jump start your career in your chosen field. You should consider a certificate if you:
- have already established a career in the field but are new to the world of post secondary education,
- would like to gain a specific skill quickly
- are considering a career path but are not sure about it
- would like to continue working while you study
- would like to improve your grades
Diploma Programs (D)
Diploma Programs are usually 1 to 2 years in length. Just like Certificate Programs they are excellent pathways into the world of work without the time or financial commitment of a full degree program. There are “regular” diploma programs for those without academic degrees or post graduate diploma programs for those already in possession of an academic degree. Due to the longer time commitment in comparison to Certificate Programs, Diploma Programs tend to explore a particular subject matter more deeply.
Bachelor’s Degrees (B)
In Canada, Bachelor’s Degrees are, typically, 4 year programs. Nowadays, many employers require a Bachelor’s Degree for many professional positions. There is usually a large “research” component to a Bachelor’s Degree program. Both Colleges and Universities can grant Bachelor’s Degrees.
Master’s Degrees (M)
Master’s Degrees are typically only granted by Universities. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree, a student can continue their studies in more depth and receive a Master’s Degree.
A PhD is a globally recognized postgraduate academic degree awarded by Universities to a candidate who has submitted a thesis or dissertation, based on extensive and original research in their chosen field.
Vocational Programs (V)
Vocational programs are programs that are more practical than a Bachelor’s Degree. The focus is more on hands-on experience rather than research. Many vocational programs can also lead to a Bachelor’s Degree. Typically, vocational programs can be 3 or 4 years in length.
Over the years Grand Pacific Consulting has helped thousands of students get accepted into the College or University Program of their choice. We will help you decide on a program, prepare your documentation, get a visa and GET ACCEPTED.
