International education, including international students coming to British Columbia and British Columbia students travelling abroad, enriches student development and connects the province to the broader global knowledge economy.
Every year British Columbia welcomes students from over 150 countries to experience a world class education and life. International students provide opportunities for British Columbia students to have more global education experiences at home and bring social and cultural benefits to communities, schools and institutions throughout the province.
At the same time, schools and institutions in the province are committed to supporting the outward mobility of British Columbia students through study and work abroad opportunities. These activities provide students with valuable intercultural learning.
