COVID-19 International Student Information

The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed every aspect of our lives, including the way we learn. NBCC is balancing new requirements with the experiential and applied learning opportunities our students have come to expect. Below you will find helpful resources and information for international learners preparing to study with us.

Program Delivery

Our academic delivery is all about balance, consisting of a blend of connected virtual theory and in-person practical learning.

Program Delivery Methods

NBCC’s academic programming is delivered in a blended format, with up to 80 percent of instruction delivered in person and the rest on our virtual platforms, depending on your program.

In-Person: Courses that are delivered on-campus from the start of the term.

Virtual: Courses that include a variety of learning activities, including scheduled, real-time virtual class sessions.

Travelling or Returning to New Brunswick

We recommend that all new and current students planning to travel to or from New Brunswick or Canada at any time before or during their studies, carefully review the NBCC Student Travel and Self-Isolation Guide (COVID-19) AND submit the NBCC Student Self-isolation Plan form (recommended) at

In addition to reviewing the NBCC Student Travel and Self-isolation Guide (COVID-19), it is highly recommended to review the Government of Canada’s COVID-19: A Guide for International Students in Canada Arriving from Abroad and NBCC’s Travel Restrictions for International Students document.

You can review the International Student Immigration Scenarios (pdf) for additional tips and resources. We have provided possible scenarios and immigration obligations due to alternate academic program delivery. This document is updated regularly. It is your responsibility as the student to be aware of your immigration status, responsibilities, and implications of your decisions.
