BGU offers two types of Certificates: Certificates of Achievement and Intensive Certificates.
Certificates of Achievement are offered by BGU professors and alumni for those who love to learn. The classes are typically available continuously and have no academic entry requirements. A wide variety of subjects will soon be available. Certificates of Achievement may offer continuing education credit, but not converted for academic degree credit.
Intensive Certificates are an excellent way to experience BGU courses without committing to a full graduate-level degree program. Successful certificate holders can potentially convert their certificate to degree credit.
For more information about Intensive Certificates, please see BGU Core Appendices - Appendix 53
