Why should international students choose Sheridan College?

English Proficiency Requirement: We are flexible with international students who do not speak English as their first language. If you meet the academic admission requirements but have not yet obtained proof of English proficiency, you can get a conditional Letter of Acceptance (LOA), also known as a conditional Offer of Admission, pending your English score. You have 45 days before the start of the school year to submit your English score. For example, if you’re applying for the September intake, you can submit your ILSC certificate showing that you meet the required level for your program by July 15.

Financial Aid & Awards: Depending on which program you are enrolled in, if you are a new student starting spring (May) 2023, fall (September) 2023, or winter (January) 2024, you can get an International Entrance Scholarship ranging from $500 to $2,000. Students will be notified of their exact scholarship amount with their offer of admission. These scholarships are automatically granted without requesting any previous academic performance. You will also be eligible for tuition reduction if you are a new or returning student enrolled in our Pilon School of Business programs on a full-time basis, effective for the fall (September) 2023 semester. The reduction will be reflected in the Fee Estimates.

140+ Programs: Our varied selection of programs at Sheridan College include one-year certificates, two-year diplomas, three-year advanced diplomas, four-year bachelor’s degrees, and one-year post-graduate certificates. Included are 35 bachelor’s degree programs with Degree Completion pathways. With Degree Completion for example, you can complete another two or two and a half years of studies to obtain a bachelor’s degree after completing a two-year diploma program. Degree Completion is a popular choice because you can complete the diploma program by paying international tuition, then come out to work and apply for permanent residency. After becoming a permanent resident and returning to complete two more years to obtain your degree, you only pay the domestic tuition for these last two years, which helps you save a lot.

Work-Integrated Learning: Around 88 of our 140+ programs have a work component, either mandatory or optional. It can be a co-op, internship, field placement, or professional practice through which you can gain some Canadian work experience for your resume right after graduation or get a job on the spot from your co-op or internship employer. Programs are highly focused on practical skills and experiential learning, and strong partnerships with employers and the community are established and maintained in the best interest of our students. Sheridan College programs and support services help you get career-ready with: pre-enrolment career and program advising, a work-integrated learning environment, resume and cover letter preparation, and interview techniques counselling.
