Herzing College Montreal is offering new scheduling options to make it easier for busy adults to fit career training into their lives.
For most programs, students can now choose to take a full load of classes to complete their diploma quickly. Or they can take fewer class hours per week and spread the training out over a longer timeframe.
Herzing recognized that many people would like to pursue training and qualify for better opportunities, but find it difficult to do so because they’re already working or have other demands on their time.
With the new option to spend less time in class each week, students have more flexibility to work their studies into their schedule—and even qualify for more funding.
Here’s all the information you need on the scheduling options and how each one can benefit you.
WHICH PROGRAMS DO THE NEW OPTIONS APPLY TO?
All of the following programs offer both scheduling options:
☑️ Business Administration
☑️ Computer-Aided Design and Drafting
☑️ Computer and Networking Systems
☑️ Early Childhood Education
☑️ Interior Design
☑️ International Commerce & Import/Export
☑️ Programmer Analyst
HOW DOES EACH OPTION WORK?
A full load of class hours means dedicating yourself to 20 to 25 hours of class each week.
If you can make that work, you can graduate with your diploma and get into the job market sooner. This is key for many people.
The other option is to only take 12 to 15 hours of class a week.
If your job or family commitments limit the time you have for training, the fewer-hours-over-more-time option is much more manageable. You can get the education you want without having to put so much of your life on hold.
HOW DOES SPREADING OUT THE TRAINING AFFECT FINANCIAL AID?
There are funding implications to consider.
Under the Quebec student loan program, the amount you receive is fixed per month. So the longer you’re in school, the more you’ll be eligible to borrow.
Since tuition is the same amount regardless of how long you take to finish the program, you could actually get more funding by spreading out your studies out over time.
You could end up with extra money to put toward living expenses, for instance.
Keep in mind, however, that you’ll still have to repay the loan with interest once you complete your training.
