The International Education department at Okanagan College provides a wide variety of programs and services designed to promote an international perspective in the teaching, research, and service functions of Okanagan College.
To promote a global perspective in Okanagan College's classrooms and a multicultural environment on Okanagan College's campuses, International Education recruits students from abroad, and helps them to adjust to life in Canada and to their studies at Okanagan College.
International Education offers a variety of short-term opportunities for international groups who come to Okanagan College for custom-designed programs of study combined with cultural and recreational activities.
International Education coordinates international activities for Canadian students who wish to engage in international learning opportunities as part of their college experience. Participation in international student exchanges, international internships, credit recognition for studies abroad, and international field schools are coordinated by International Education.
To build on Okanagan College's international reputation and to create international learning and research opportunities for Okanagan College students and faculty, International Education establishes and maintains collaborative relationships with colleges and universities in a variety of countries. International Education collaborates with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) on projects which increase the capacity, efficiency and effectiveness of partner colleges and universities in the developing world. International projects provide Okanagan College faculty and staff with opportunities to apply their expertise in developing countries and help to build Okanagan College's profile both in Canada and abroad.
