Discover your path in Canada

Yorkville University welcomes international students from around the world. In fact, students from more than 35 countries have graduated from our career-focused degree programs.

Whether you choose to study on campus in Vancouver or Toronto, our small class sizes, vibrant international student community and friendly student services team help you feel comfortable in your new environment. 

If you continuously study full time on campus for the majority of your courses and graduate, you may be eligible for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), which offers a path to permanent residency in Canada.


Yorkville University provides an excellent academic experience, but what stands out to me the most are the non-academic activities and events both on and off campus.
