Welcome to Vancouver! We have had students from all over the world attend our programs. If you fall into this category you’ll have some extra work to do, but as any of our international grads will tell you, it’s well worth your while.

If you are planning to study in a program in Canada that lasts six months or less, you do not need a study permit. You must complete the course or program within the period authorized for your stay in Canada. However, if you are taking a program over 6 months, you will require a study permit.
