It is essential that all international students have medical insurance to cover any health care costs while they are studying at Sterling College.

Your home country may offer student / travel medical insurance options. However, the benefit of purchasing coverage from a Canadian company ensures that Canadian hospitals are able to bill the insurance company directly, so you don’t have to worry about covering bills up front.

To make things simple, we have made an agreement with StudyInsured to help take care of your health insurance needs. International students may use the link below to register for coverage, submit claims, and view what the plan covers.

If you have any further questions about medical coverage, please speak to your Admissions Advisor who can help you with the process.

*Beginning January 2020, coverage through StudyInsured will be mandatory, and this fee will be automatically included as part of international tuition.

English Language Requirements

If English is not your first language, you must also have one of the following prerequisites:

  • Business Programs: International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic) minimum score of 6.0 or equivalent
  • Nursing Programs: Applicants must have an overall IELTS 6.0 (with no individual band below 5.5) or equivalent (applicants from India must have an overall IELTS  6.5 with no individual band below 6.0)


Having a comfortable place to stay while you study is important to make the most of your time here. Sterling College does not currently provide accommodations on campus. “Homestay”, where you live with a local family while studying in Canada, is one popular accommodations option for many international students. Please visit the below websites for “Homestay” and other accommodation options in Vancouver and Surrey.


We are known for our beautiful and abundant provincial parks and ocean views.
