Columbia College recently launched a new, ambitious ‘Career Life Connections’ course into its high school syllabus. This course is centred on exploring professional learning, connecting to a student’s chosen field in preparation for a strong launch into their career, and essential networking exposure pre-graduation. The course culminates in a capstone research project in their chosen field of specialty which will be presented to a professional audience and demonstrate applied learning and the spirit of innovation. This course is specifically designed to enhance personal skills, academic achievement, strengthening of essential competencies and career planning. It is an ideal course for any student seeking to achieve their best, whether heading into post-secondary education or directly into the employment market.
The college continues to expand its well-known homestay program, an essential element of Columbia College’s offering to students and one that is particularly attractive to international students who are looking for an authentic Canadian experience and wish to further integrate into the local culture. The program has a consistently impressive turnover from students around the world and is a core element of the college’s approach to providing unique study abroad experiences.
