In addition, graduates are prepared for any of the programs listed under Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Certificates and Diplomas.

Students are strongly encouraged to contact the admissions department of their university of interest to ensure that Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees will meet the admission requirements of their program choice. Niagara College cannot guarantee that the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program will meet the admission requirements at every university.

I couldn’t imagine not taking this program and going to University without it. Most importantly, the faculty cares about the content of what they are teaching and their students. This makes the program successful.
