International Student Support


At NBCC we recognize the need for support as learners from around the world join us for their learning journey. You are not alone on this journey, our Student Success Coaches are here to help and assist learners in their transition to NBCC and encourage growth and development throughout their college experience.

We seek to empower students to identify and achieve their educational, personal, and professional goals through coaching sessions and connecting them with resources within and beyond NBCC.

Student Success Coach

I am so glad you are here, and I am happy to offer International and First Generation learners assistance and support. If there are any challenges in your way towards academic, financial, career and personal success, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We can walk through the challenges together by connecting you with NBCC services, peers and more! I look forward to meeting you! Here are a few facts about me: nature and hugging my dogs make me feel calm. 5 years ago, I was an international student who moved to Canada by myself.
