University graduates return to college after earning bachelor’s degree: Editorial


In a recent editorial, Chris Clay of Humber College explores the potential reasons why an increasing number of Canadians are attending college after completing their bachelor’s degree. The author points to the latest census data, which show that “one in five college students in Canada, or 19.4 per cent, had previously completed a Bachelor’s degree or higher.” For international students, the writer identifies similar figures, highlighting that one in three international college students have a bachelor’s degree or higher. Clay writes that the college programs these students pursue are typically closely related to the prior bachelor’s degree, concluding that the college programs were chosen to enhance or specialize the skills established by the undergraduate degree.
