International Students

KPU's approach to education, that blends academic and applied learning, attracts international students from over 69 countries worldwide.

KPU offers international students various resources to help them succeed in their studies:

Volunteer, Work, and Internship Opportunities

International students are encouraged to gain experience and knowledge in their field of study through volunteer, work and
internship opportunities. There are many resources and support services that are available to assist international students in understanding the Canadian workplace, preparing their resumes and get experience doing interviews. Work opportunities are supported through the co-operative education and career services office at KPU.  The Office of International Students and Scholars will assist in ensuring you have the appropriate documents to successfully work in Canada. International students with an interest in working or volunteering should make an appointment to see an advisor at kpu.ca/advising/advisor-connect.
