International Students

The Wong and Trainor Centre for International Experience (CIE) welcomes a huge variety of international students to Canada, with the programs and support to make your studies at Capilano University both memorable and successful.

Your experience at CapU

Minutes from our main campus in North Vancouver, B.C., you'll find hiking and mountain biking trails, secret beaches and world-class ski resorts with spectacular views of the Vancouver skyline.

When you arrive at CapU, you'll be starting in a hands-on educational learning environment, studying for success in interactive and focused liberal arts classes. In our classes, you'll learn industry best practices from experienced instructors who will provide mentorship and guidance.

The public university degree programs offered at CapU feature smaller class sizes than many of the big public universities and colleges, as well as select graduate programs to complement an existing undergraduate degree.

Outside of class, you'll have the chance to build new friendships with students and mentors who are excited to introduce you to CapU and all the resources available to you.
