Many international students choose to study in another country for one term (semester) and return to their home institution to complete their academic program. BCIT is excited to offer international students the opportunity to study up to four courses at BCIT. You can choose from a variety of courses that may not be available at your home institution.
Studying outside your country allows you to immerse yourself in a foreign culture, to enhance your foreign language proficiency and to broaden your academic horizons.
You should organize a learning agreement with assistance from your institutional representative to find out which credits you earn from BCIT courses will be transferrable to your home institution. One BCIT credit is approximately worth two European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits.
To study in Canada for less than 6 months you are not required to have a study permit. Visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to determine if you require a Visitor Visa (Temporary Resident Visa) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
Housing is available on-campus or off-campus. On-campus housing is limited. Visit Student Housing for more information.
Yes, medical insurance is mandatory while studying at BCIT.
