Making the Move to Canada

Make your move to Canada as easy as possible with these simple steps!


Sterling College welcomes students from all over the world! Once you have completed your English assessment and met all the admission requirements, it’s time to make your move.

Make sure you plan ahead! Arrange your accommodations before you leave. Depending on your budget, there are a few options available such as staying with a homestay family or renting a furnished suite on your own or with roommate. Homestay is a great option, as your host family will provide you not only with meals and internet access, but also important information on the city and culture. A homestay experience also gives you more opportunity to practice your English. Make sure you arrive in Canada with enough time to get settled into your new home, become familiarized with your neighborhood, transit system, and where your campus is located.

Getting to our campuses is easy! Both our Vancouver and Surrey locations are located a short walk away from the Skytrain. Each program has a scheduled orientation at the campus before classes start. Make sure to attend so that you can meet your classmates and get to know your new school.

Our international advisors can help you with any questions you may have about the city, your program, or finances. You can contact them with any questions you have before you make your move as well as once you are on campus. Visit our International Admissions page to find helpful links to accommodation options and information on things to do, where to eat, and how to get around Vancouver. We can’t wait to meet you!
