Welcome to BCIT

Welcome to the BCIT Community!

At BCIT, we prioritize student success and work to provide all students with opportunities to meet the challenges of their chosen area of study and to achieve their goals for attending. There is a reason over 90% of BCIT degree graduates are employed — our programs are rigorous and employers know that. From the day you receive your acceptance letter to the day you graduate, you’ve got this and we’ve got you.

Newly accepted: prepare to succeed at BCIT

If you’re newly accepted be sure to check out and complete the Next Steps for New Students. These steps are important as they will ensure you haven’t missed anything before you start your courses.

Kick Start events and activities include information about your Program Orientation and International Orientation. There are lots of opportunities to meet new people, get to know the range of available student services and participate in Learning Skills Seminars to brush up on your study skills. Many students describe the need to “learn how to learn” prior to starting their BCIT courses or programs. Learning Skills Seminars are an excellent way to kick start your academic success!

Check out the Student Services website for everything you need to know about being a student and to learn insider tips. Make sure you are also up-to-date on all COVID-related information.

Whether you’re full-time, part-time, and regardless of which campus you attend, there’s a wide range of services that are free to all BCIT students. Watch the Kick Start video to find out more about the supports and services that are here to help you succeed throughout your time at BCIT.
