Welcoming students from Canada

Find your home from home

We have a large community of international students at BU – currently just over 2,000 students from around 100 different countries and regions. At the moment, we have ten students from Canada studying with us.

We are always happy to welcome new Canadian students onto our undergraduate, postgraduate, research and top-up courses. We are proud to offer an exchange programme in Canada through Memorial University.

We will help you with your application to study at BU, or you can speak to one of our representatives in Canada who can offer assistance with your application. If you'd like more general advice about the UK education system, visas, scholarships or the variety of courses on offer, you should contact the British Council in Canada.
