You want to go to college but you feel like you’ve hit a brick wall.

There might be a few things holding you back from your post secondary studies – perhaps you’re dealing with financial difficulties or your schedule is cramped because of your current career. The good news is that there are solutions. The real problem is that you just don’t know about them yet.

We’ve compiled a list of myths and solutions to show you that studying part-time can take the stress out of getting your education.

Myth 1 – Post-secondary is too expensive

First of all, studying on a part-time basis helps space out your payments which is less stressful than paying for multiple courses all at the same time. There doesn’t need to be cost barriers for studying your dream program. In fact, students can register and pay per course, meaning it’s easier to stick to a budget. There’s also no rush to complete a program in a year, unlike full-time students.

Myth 2 – I’m too busy

If you’re busy then you’re just like many others. You probably already have a demanding job that keeps you in an office many hours each day. The beauty of choosing part-time courses is that you can take them whenever they work best for you. You can take them earlier on in the day, choose evening courses, or even ones during the weekend. Even better, studying on a part-time basis allows you to keep your day job.

Myth 3 – It’s too confusing to choose a school

Demand explanations and information since your education will be one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life. Try attending an info session or contact a friendly BCIT advisor.

Myth 4 – I’ll run out of options

Perhaps you have a goal but you want to know that different doors are open in the meantime. The good news is you can build upon courses and certificates with diplomas and degrees. The part-time course options are endless – study computing and IT, health care, interior design, business, and much more. Browse through these part-time courses and imagine all the things that you could do with them.

For most part-time courses you can simply choose the ones you want, register, and then pay your fees.
