Universal Information Technology College is a private career college registered under the Private Colleges Act, 2005 operated as a non-profit organization. UITC is approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to offer diploma programs in Computerized Accounting, Administrative Assistant, and Early Childhood Assistant (ECA).
Your diploma demonstrates your competency in your chosen career field, and may faciliate your job search also in other English-speaking areas.
These diploma programs are designed especially for high-school graduates who want to enter the workforce within a short period of time, or university graduates who want to enter particular career fields. These programs are also offered to other individuals who want a change in their career direction, as long as they are 18 years of age or above and score 12 or more in the Scholastic Level Exam.
Canadian citizens and landed immigrants who has been laid off or are receiving employment insurance for other financial reasons may also benefit from our programs if they intend to upgrade their skills or change career directions. Enrolling in our diploma programs may qualify for additional assistance in tuition, book fees, and transportation fees.
According to a survey by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, given the same level of education and same amount of work experience, the unemployment rate for citizens is 3% while those for new immigrants is as high as 16%. The difference in the two can be attributed to both a lack of Canadian experience and an inability to communicate effectively in English. UITC’s programs are required to have a practicum (on-the-job training) component. All students will have a field placement in a related organization, so that the student can have work experience before they graduate. The work experience will facilitate job search and so our programs are also suitable for new immigrants.
Each program typically takes 6 to 8 months. Actual program length and tuition will depend on the content of the specific program.
