We love what you as an international student add to who we are, because ABC is not just a school, it’s a community…a family.

“ABC is a Designated Learning Institution, that complies with the Alberta Designation Requirements, and therefore is eligible to receive foreign nationals on a study permit. ABC’s one-year certificates, two- year diplomas, and four-year degrees are all academic Designated Learning Programs.”

Applicants who are not current Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents will require a Study Permit issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

All potential applicants must provide the following:

  • All appropriate legal and official documentation verifying eligibility to attend ABC (i.e. official transcripts, high school verification, English competency test scores, etc.)
  • Financial confirmation proving educational costs and living expenses can be covered

Please be advised that Alberta Bible College does not provide scholarships to International Students.

For further information, see the Government of Canada’s page regarding Study in Canada: Visas, Work and Immigration for International Students.

38 of the 86 students enrolled at ABC have a country of origin other than Canada (many of these students are now citizens or permanent residents). The map is a representation of where our students come from as of Fall 2020.

ABC operates in compliance to Bill C-35, An Act to Amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection A. All questions regarding immigration matters must be directed to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and its representatives. Alberta Bible College does not consult nor function in the role of consultant in regards to immigration concerns. Please contact the Government of Canada directly.

As an international student, you will join many who have blessed ABC through their rich experiences, perspectives, and previous learning from different places in the world—enlarging us and equipping us to take God’s love to the world. Together we are stronger.
