Make VANCOUVER ISLAND your classroom

From vibrant music festivals, skiing at Mount Washington Alpine Resort, and surfing on Vancouver Island's West Coast, North Island College offers an outstanding education in one of Canada's most spectacular international tourist destinations.

North Island College international students study at three campuses on central Vancouver Island, a popular tourist destination with access to beaches, mountains, wilderness areas and lively, friendly communities.

Whether you study in the Comox Valley, Port Alberni, or Campbell River, each community offers one-of-a-kind restaurants, social activities, and opportunities for adventure you can't get anywhere else.


Students who participate in community events and activities often feel more confident and comfortable in Canada and they are often more successful in their studies.

Get started by choosing one or two activities you might enjoy from the websites below. Then, make it your goal to meet people, share your knowledge, and get to know your new community.
