Credential Evaluation

If you are looking for employment, professional licensing or further study in Canada, or if you want your education to be evaluated, our International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES) can help.

ICES evaluates formal for-credit educational programs for people who have studied in other provinces or countries, and determines comparable levels in British Columbian and Canadian terms. The results of an ICES assessment are provided in evaluation reports that are objective, consistent and reliable.

Some BCIT programs with a post-secondary entrance requirement will necessitate a comprehensive ICES evaluation for applicants who completed their post-secondary studies outside of Canada, the United States or the United Kingdom. Please review your program's entrance requirements to be sure. If you are required to submit an ICES evaluation, convert the completed evaluation to Portable Document Format (PDF) and submit along with your online application.

Please note that a comprehensive ICES evaluation takes a minimum of 7 weeks to complete.
