Education for Parents
Many parents feel the desire to return to studies, whether it is to retrain, to refresh, or to follow new interests. The University of Ottawa offers numerous services to part-time or full-time "parent-students" to help them achieve their academic goals. This page gives a listing of essential services.
The Centre for Continuing Education offers many courses to improve your competencies or to learn just for fun.
- The Personal Enrichment Activities are non-credited courses and are open to Parents. If you're looking simply to sharpen your knowledge then this is the choice for you.
- If you are looking for result-oriented training programs, geared to your professional needs, many workshops are available in the Professional Development Workshops.
Parents who also want to be Students
Many courses are available a la carte, for the pleasure of learning on a part-time basis. Special students are those who register either for credit or as auditors (just to sit in), but are not seeking a degree, diploma or certificate. Courses are generally at the undergraduate level. A select number of graduate courses may be available to qualified students, in which case it is best to contact the academic department directly.
