Prairie on the List of Designated Learning Institutions Re-Opening to International Students

If you’re a prospective international student that has been hoping to study in Canada this year, you’ve been through more than your fair share of ambiguity, suspense, and waiting for information about when you’ll finally be able to realize your dream of studying abroad. More than seven months after the Covid-19 virus first appeared in the Province of Alberta, those answers are starting to come, and they are looking promising.

Prairie College Receives Covid-19 Readiness Plan Approval for International Students

A couple of weeks ago, the Government of Canada announced that a number of Designated Learning Institutions (DLIs) across the country, including Prairie College, had been approved to reopen to international students who are not already residing in the country. This comes as a direct result of extensive Covid-19 readiness plans that each DLI institution has put into place. Members of Prairie College’s Covid-19 Response Team have ensured that Prairie will be ready to welcome international students in a manner that ensures each student is taken care of, while simultaneously protecting the rest of the student body and wider Three Hills community.

The future of international study in Canada may seem uncertain in this anything but average year, but Prairie remains committed to providing opportunities for international students to grow in their faith while preparing to meet the greatest needs of the world.

If you are considering joining Prairie as an international student and would like more information on how to apply, you can visit our admissions procedures page by clicking here, or contact admissions@prairie.edu for more information. Applications for study can be started by going to the International Student Payment page and submitting your application fee.

We look forward to connecting with you!



Updated November 20, 2020: A previous version of this article indicated that international students may benefit from reduced quarantine periods as a result of a new pilot program in the province of Alberta. Prairie College has since been informed that students living in a dorm residence situation would not qualify to take part in this pilot program, and will need to quarantine for a full 14 days.
