A Word from the Director
Thank you for your interest in VGC International College. We know that the decision to choose a school is an important one and we are honored that you are considering us.
Our reputation is built around a strong focus on the student experience. We have accomplished this by concentrating on enabling our students to achieve their individual academic goals, creating a warm environment and giving our students an amazing intercultural experience. Collectively, these positive experiences have made VGC one of the fastest-growing schools in Canada.
To adjust to this growth, we have added a new campus that boasts more student space, modern classrooms and a great location in the heart of Vancouver.
We have expanded our course options by keeping our award-winning English language programs and adding new business classes. We have achieved this by dividing our college into two schools: the School of English Language and the School of Business. By doing this, we have changed with the times and demands of the students. Now VGC students can graduate from our college with their English language goals achieved and practical business training, a combination of skills and experience that can be life-changing. Over the next few years, you will see the School of Business grow as we hope to keep adding to our programs.
As we look forward to the future, we will continue to recognize that for our students, this is a once in a lifetime experience, and we will look forward to creating new stories with new students and making VGC International College part of your future.
Vancouver: Ranked as One of the Most Beautiful and Livable Cities in the World.
Vancouver is the city of choice if you choose to learn English in Canada. Set against a stunning backdrop on Canada’s west coast, Vancouver continuously ranks in the top five best cities in the world to live in. Vancouver is naturally beautiful, mild in climate and one of the safest cities in North America.
Nestled between snow-capped mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver offers the perfect blend of year-round outdoor activities and urban excitement. Relax on one of Vancouver’s many sandy beaches, wander through the boutique shops in historic Gastown or catch some air snowboarding or hiking on Grouse Mountain – in Vancouver, there is something for everyone! There is no other city in the world like Vancouver, and VGC’s campuses are located right in the heart of it!
