Prospective Students

This information is for Prospective Students who are interested in registering for a JIBC Continuing Studies Course or applying for a JIBC Program.

JIBC generally provides two types of courses available to the general public:

  • Continuing Studies Courses: Professional development and continuing education courses that do not require students to apply and be accepted into a program.
  • Program Courses: Courses only available to students that have been accepted into a JIBC Program.

Both types of courses are searchable on JIBC’s online Course Catalogue.
