Established in 1936, Columbia College is Canada’s longest-established international private college, offering first and second year university transfer courses, Associate Degrees in Arts and Science, a university preparatory foundations program, Academic Preparatory English, and conditional acceptances. Since 1985, Columbia College has established a national reputation as Canada's premier university-preparatory school for international students. During this period, the college has consistently been one of the top three providers of international students to the University of British Columbia, and also sends large numbers of students to Simon Fraser, Vancouver's other major university. Columbia College has a total student population of approximately 1000 students, creating an environment that is perfect for those who are new to Canada and need the support that only a small community of staff and students can offer. The College also works closely with its network of host families to provide safe and enjoyable home-stay experiences for its international students.
