Welcome to Lakeland International
Open yourself to the opportunity of learning in another country.
At Lakeland College, we welcome students from all over the globe. In the past few years we've had students from more than 20 countries.
We also help current students find study abroad opportunities and internships. As part of our mandate, Lakeland is also involved in projects and partnerships with other post-secondaries in Canada and around the globe.
Club trips and program practicums beyond Canada's are annual, they aren't a part of our official role.
Who is an international student?
If you don't have a Canadian passport or a residency card, then you are an international student.
How we help
Our international team will help you from an initial question about coming to Lakeland through to your time as a student.
