International Fall 2022 & Winter 2023 Pre-Arrival Resources


We are so excited that you will be joining one of our six beautiful NBCC campuses during the 2022-2023 academic year! We also know that there is a lot of preparation that needs to happen between now and then. Please be sure to attend all pre-arrival webinars and review the information on this webpage thoroughly to ensure that you are prepared for a successful start to your time in Canada and your NBCC studies.

Through our pre-arrival webinars, we want to provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the College, student support services, entering Canada, health insurance, and more. Below, you will find registration information, other helpful video content, and resources to ensure that you are prepared to begin your studies at NBCC and in Canada.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to campus!
