Adult Learners

NBCC is a great choice for going back to school as an adult learner. In 2020/2021, 22% of NBCC students were between the ages of 21-24, and 37% were 25 years of age and older. Many of our programs are either one or two years in length, with some of our specialty programs being even shorter. A change in career or adding to your existing skillset to open new doors may be closer than you think.
