Choose an Innovative Training Option That Suits Your Current Life
Stenberg College knows that students come from many different backgrounds. Each individual has his or her own preferred way of learning. And, frequently, that preference is more of a necessity because of other existing commitments that are common among adult learners—like jobs or family.
That's why the college offers the choice of learning at its physical campus in Surrey, British Columbia or, for some programs, going through a hybrid course of study that is primarily based online. Either way, you get the same highly focused curriculum. And you experience the same expert guidance. Here are some of the highlights of each option:
- Classroom-based training—Learn at the college's BC campus where you can engage face-to-face with your instructors and other students. The college works to keep the learning environment fun and supportive through monthly social events and direct access to in-person academic assistance and other student services.
- Online-based hybrid training—Enjoy greater flexibility in where and when you study. You get to choose the time of day that works best with your other responsibilities. And, for most of your education, you get to stay at home. One of the most compelling things about this hybrid option is that you still get hands-on practice at what you're learning. The college maintains regional instruction labs in cities across Canada. So, for the short periods of in-person skills training, you can simply travel to one of those cities.
