Colleges and Institutes

Some colleges offer transfer programs that enable participants to complete courses through the college and then later transfer into a university or university college, with credit toward their university degrees. Thus, colleges can either be the full educational experience for an international student, or a part, if the student wants both college and university education. Under a university transfer arrangement, the student would typically do one or two years at a college and then two years at a university. The benefits to the international student of such a transfer arrangement are:

  • Smaller classes strength (during the college portion of the study program), with more support.
  • A more applied and practical study program than university, with opportunities for placements.
  • A lower cost than university alone.
