Study in one of Canada's Fastest Growing Provinces

With one of the strongest economies in the country (and the world !), and a higher per capita GDP than any other Canadian province - Alberta is a great place for any international student to kick-start a life and successful career in Canada.

With its renown and booming petroleum industry, strong agriculture and technology sectors, Alberta offers an exciting array of job prospects for talented and qualified newcomers. Its major cities of Calgary and Edmonton attract over 4 million visitors each year, and the world famous annual Calgary Stampede is a true piece of Canadian culture. So what's the best way to successfully make your way in Alberta? Why, study there, of course!

Not far from the US border and the famous Rocky Mountains, Lethbridge College offers international students a chance to learn in one of Canada's sunniest cities - that's right, lots of sunshine and fresh air ! Originally founded in 1957, Lethbridge College opened as Canada's first ever public community college and today, the institution hosts more than 4,000 students each year.


With more than 50 different career-training programs, applied degrees, and apprenticeships to choose from, students at Lethbridge College are guaranteed a hands-on, career-oriented education. Program areas are diverse, and range from Justice Studies to Multimedia Production, Engineering Design and Drafting Technology, Practical Nursing, Fish and Wildlife Technology, Geomatics Engineering, Natural Resource Compliance, Computer Information Technology, and even Fashion Design and Marketing. With industry connections throughout Alberta as well as Canada Lethbridge College provides students the opportunity to enhance their studies with quality practicum experiences, and real-world learning opportunities.

Particularly for students hoping to stay on to work or immigrate to Canada after graduation, a diploma from Lethbridge College is a great way to start the process!
