We’re thrilled that you’re thinking about coming to BCIT for your semester abroad in Vancouver. Vancouver is a world-class city surrounded by mountains and the sea. We have a mild climate that allows you to enjoy a walk downtown, skiing in the mountains, or a day at one of the many beaches nearly anytime of the year.

If you are a student from one of our partner universities, you can study at BCIT Business as an exchange student. If there is no exchange agreement between BCIT Business and your home institution, you can apply as a Study Abroad student instead.

At BCIT we have more than 100 programs and over 300 courses in business and media related fields. You will be fully immersed in Canadian culture while studying within BCIT’s small class sizes and applied learning approach, providing you with a life changing experience. Discover our opportunities for you to study at BCIT.
