Bridging for IT

York University's Bridging Program for Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) works with small and large local businesses, not-for-profits, professional associations and accreditation bodies to help IEPs transition into a position that matches their education, credentials and experience. We attract candidates from over 45 countries and create an individual, customized action plan for each IEP that is tailored to their goals and career path.  Our main goal is to help IEPs transition with confidence into a job in their field.

Courses to choose from in the Information Technology certificate include areas such as: systems analysis, big data and modern data analytics and enterprise systems. We are also in the process of adding new courses.  See more information on Certificate courses here.
