Check out the video and keep a few things in mind when coming to BC to study.
International Study Basics
1. English is the language of instruction
Each institution sets its own level of English proficiency. Contact the institutions you are interested in attending to confirm you have the required level of English. English as a Second Language (ESL) upgrading support is available at most institutions.
2. Obtain a study permit
If your academic degree program is longer than 6 months, you have to obtain a study permit. See Citizenship and Immigration Canadaon how to get one.
3. Health insurance is required
If you're studying in BC for longer than 3 months, you have to enroll in the BC Medical Services Plan. Find out more at your institution's International Student Services Office.
4. Speak to an Advisor at your Institution
Contact an international student advisor at the institution you would like to attend, to go over the application process and ask all the questions you have on living, working and studying in BC.
