After many years of providing top quality programs and guiding students into Canadian universities, Columbia College at last has a facility worthy of our educational services.

In April, 2013, Columbia College moved into a brand new five-story building on Terminal Avenue, a building that has already become a local landmark. In this outstanding facility Columbia College continues to offer programs that prepare students to enter top universities. Our programs include a University Transfer/Associate Degree Program, a University Foundations Program, and a Full-time Academic English (ESL) Preparatory Program. For over seven decades students have used these programs as a platform for academic success, with thousands of students transferring and completing degrees at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and other top universities.

Columbia’s relatively small size and friendly, family atmosphere means that students from overseas are given the opportunity to adjust to a Canadian lifestyle under minimal pressure, and can then move on to a major university with a much greater chance of success.

It goes without saying that Columbia College’s home, Vancouver, is widely recognized as one of the world’s most beautiful and livable cities. If you are considering a North American education, I invite you to join us in downtown Vancouver – let Columbia College help you take the first step in an exciting and successful academic career.
