We will take you through the steps required to submit your application or declaration. We will also inform you of all educational and immigration documents required by BCIT.

BCIT offers two types of programs:


Full-time programs require you to apply and meet specific entrance requirements. Seats for full-time programs are limited. Depending on the program, students are accepted on a first-come, first-served or competitive basis. If you are accepted, you are automatically registered into all of the courses you need each term.

Part-time Studies

Part-time Studies (course-by-course) programs require you to declare and may or may not have entrance requirements. You are responsible for registering yourself into the courses you need each term. Note: Part-time Studies (course-by-course) programs are only available to international students who currently have a valid status in Canada.
