International Education in B.C.

International students are very welcome in B.C.! 18,700 international students were in B.C.’s K-12 schools in 2015/16, helping British Columbians connect to the world.

International students make important contributions to B.C. schools, homes and communities and contribute to a globally oriented education system in B.C.

B.C. views international education as the two-way flow of students, teachers, and ideas between our province and the world and is proud of its International Education Strategy.
