Become a Student
is where it starts
They say when you start college, you leave home. What they don’t tell you is that when you enroll in studies at the College of New Caledonia, there’s a great new home ready and waiting for you.
In this warm, caring academic environment, you are encircled by a group of peers, advisors and faculty ready to guide, nurture and enrich you. This is where we excel, helping our students every step of the way. You may have traveled far to get here but one thing is for sure: at the College of New Caledonia you’ll feel right at home. Students come to the College of New Caledonia for an education. But they leave with so much more than the skills they need to launch a successful career. At CNC, we prepare you for your next phase in life, whether it’s continuing on to a big university or launching your new career. But we also help you build and develop life skills. It’s a philosophy we integrate throughout our college. You’ll see it in our small class sizes, where instructors get to know you, delivering individual attention and encouragement to help you succeed. You’ll see it in the close bonds and lifelong friendships you will develop with one another. And you’ll see it in your career success post-graduation. The reason? CNC students leave equipped with greater maturity, confidence and accomplishments. You’ll leave with academic knowledge and life skills that position you on the cusp of great achievement no matter where you go.

“Coming from Shanghai, I thought I wanted a big city like Vancouver, but once there I felt lonely and lost. That’s when I decided to move to a smaller city and college, and I’m so happy I did! As soon as I got to CNC, I joined the International Leadership and Ambassador program, meeting lots of Canadian and international students. I quickly learned more about Canadian culture and improved my English. I even ran for the Student Representative with the Student Union – and I was elected! Now I serve on the BC Federation of Students Executive which addresses students’ issues. All these opportunities opened up for me because at CNC, every student has a chance to shine.” Yang Yang | CNC Business student
“The College of New Caledonia was my first step on the path toward my educational goals. As a former student, I’ve experienced firsthand the quality programming delivered by the personable instructors. The education I received at CNC shaped my career path. The ease with which the programs could be transferred meant my transition to completing a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Finance, was seamless. When I was offered the job of CNC’s Financial Aid Assistant, the decision was easy. I work with amazing people, students and employees who make CNC such a great and welcoming place to be every day!”

Teaching you is their main focus. • Small class sizes mean personal attention to individual students and a closer relationship with instructors and classmates. You’ll see the difference in your GPA as a result. • The courses you take at CNC are equivalent to a university, but cost less.

here to there “I owe my success today to my education at CNC. Starting out in the ESL program, I improved my English, which was crucial in order to progress to the Marketing and Management Diploma program. After graduation, when it was time to look for a job, I used the skills I learned at CNC like brainstorming and writing outlines to prepare for job interviews. I was so happy to become a Customer Service Representative at the Royal Bank of Canada and then be promoted to Account Manager. CNC gave me the skills to continue advancing my career and I’m so grateful for all the help and encouragement they’ve given me.” Shuaiwen Hao Account Manager, Royal Bank of Canada
