Can I apply for express entry for "two or more certificates diplomas or degrees" having ECA from UToronto for a 4-year degree and 6-month post-graduate? It asks for "years" when putting my PG on the profile. Can I select "1" for the PG?
 
Hello

Priority is always given to 4 year degree in comparison with 6-month certificate course

10th(high school graduation) >>> Secondary school diploma and diploma (two years) >>> one/two/three year certificate >>> Bachelor's degree (four years) >>> Post graduate diploma/certificate(1/2year ) Or Masters (2 years)


Note:- Post-Bachelor's one/two/three year certificate/diploma/degree is given priority if it is from technical/high professional fields.

Hey, I understand the table and the breakdown. But the way I think of it, I could be considered as "Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees. One must be for a program of three or more years", the category with 119 points as I do have 2 certificates, one being the 4-year bachelor and the other being the 6-month postgraduate. But when I enter my studies on the profile it says to put the duration in years, is putting "1 year" something that could get my profile rejected if I'm invited and then only present ECA for a 6-month study?
 
4-year degree and 6-month post-graduate
Hello
Kindly understand the statement :- Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees. One must be for a program of three or more years.

You have a Bachelor's degree a three or more year program at a university and 1 certificate (6-month certificate)

According to the rules of Canada Express Entry point system you qualify for 112 points system and not 119 points because you need to have 2 or more certificates.

You cannot enter the certificate for profiling under 1 year bracket.

Hi, I have a 4 year bachelors degree in Robotics engineering. I also have a genuine certificate in a profession related to rock climbing with tons of official (governmental) jobs and projects to back up it up. Can I use that as my second certificate and obtain the the score for "Two or more certificates, diplomas or degrees" and obtain the higher score?

Is there not an option for "Two or more post-secondary degrees or diplomas with at least one requiring three or more years of study"?
