Discover VIC


Success In English

VIC’s ESL and EAP Programs are designed to immerse students in English language learning and develop their English skills in reading, writing, listening, speaking, and grammar. With a comprehensive program, outstanding teaching, and high standards, our ESL and EAP programs prepare students for B.C. credit courses, post-secondary education, and beyond!

University Placement

It is our goal at VIC that our students move on after graduating and meet their post-secondary goals! We’ll be here for you every step of the way, from explaining admission requirements to helping you put together your application. For students with specific universities in mind, we also have the UBC/UT Program and the PU Program.

Academic Support

VIC’s staff and teachers want to help you achieve academic success! Our small class sizes allow more one-on-one time with your teachers. If you’re in need of extra help, tutoring with a certified teacher can be arranged for you at a time that works for you, as needed or on a regular basis.


Metro Vancouver is a great place to live and go to school! In a 2014 survey, Vancouver was ranked as having the highest quality of living in North America and fifth highest in the whole world! Vancouver’s high score was due in large part to its cultural diversity and large number of parks. VIC is located in peaceful uptown New Westminster, within walking distance of all necessary amenities and just a short ride from downtown Vancouver!

Student Services

In addition to providing quality education, VIC will go above and beyond to make sure that your transition to Canada and life in Vancouver are comfortable. With services like airport pickup, homestay, and GoCards, VIC will ensure you are well taken care of and have an enjoyable time throughout your schooling here.


VIC’s program and course schedule is flexible to meet your educational needs! We are open year-round and new student applications are processed throughout the year so you can start studying as soon as you’re ready. Our ESL Programs begin every 7 weeks. Our BCCG Program operates on a trimester system with summer school too, so you choose to study full-time and graduate sooner or take your time. See our Important Dates or contact us for more info!
