The structure of our four Level 1 Gateway programs will provide you with a range of Level 2 program options.
Direct Entry Programs
Students enter directly into these programs and the first-year curriculum is a set of prescribed, required courses that must be completed before advancing to Level 2 of the program.
Second Year Programs
At the end of Level 1 Gateway program students have a wide range of options to consider.
Learn about the differences between Level 2 programs including duration, enrollment process and co-op opportunities.
