Brock launches two pathway programs

November 10, 2020
Brock University will introduce two new pathway programs to enhance postsecondary education accessibility. The Open Studies pathway will allow people of any age or educational background to take part-time courses without being registered in a full certificate or degree program. Fresh Start allows students to be admitted based on high school records, giving students with previous postsecondary experience a clean slate. “Fresh Start and Open Studies directly respond to the needs of our community and the desire of more people to have access to post-secondary education,” said Lynn Wells, Brock Provost and VP, Academic. “The social and economic benefits of a post-secondary education are well established by research. Universities like Brock have a responsibility to make them as accessible as possible to their local community.” Brock (ON)
