Starting a new life in a new country can be difficult. Stenberg College wants to support you in getting a head start by offering you the opportunity to receive quality, industry-accredited education to help launch your career in Canada. All our career-oriented programs include hands-on practicums, allowing you to apply the knowledge and skills you learned in class to a career setting.
International students can obtain Post Graduate Work Permits (PGWP) only upon completion of a diploma or degree at a public post-secondary institution. This is why Stenberg College offers our graduates pathway options, for certain programs, with British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and Yorkville University to help obtain a PGWP. For more information on PGWP, please visit IRCC’s website.
If you are looking for a rewarding career in health care, technology, or with children, Stenberg can give you the tools and education you need to be successful.
You should budget anywhere from $780 to $1400 per month for your living expenses, depending on the type of accommodation you book. This would include housing, food and transportation.
