Who We Are

Since 1936, Columbia College has been serving the Vancouver Lower Mainland area. Thousands of Canadian and international students have completed their qualifications at Columbia College and used these as a platform for successful university careers. At our new location, the College will continue to provide the same top quality academic programs in brand new premises that offer improved facilities to both students and staff.

Over the years, Columbia College has consistently been one of the top three providers of international students to the University of British Columbia. Columbia College also sends large numbers of students to Simon Fraser University, Vancouver's other major university.

Our brand new campus opened its doors on April 24, 2013. The campus is conveniently close to downtown, and just two blocks away from Science World and the Main Street SkyTrain station.


Columbia College is a CELPIP Test Delivery Centre.

Paragon Testing Enterprises is a subsidiary of The University of British Columbia.
