Partnerships & Projects
Algonquin College and the International Education Centre (IEC) are committed to the development and management of high-quality international projects to provide innovative educational and development opportunities for both our international partners and Algonquin faculty and students.
Algonquin is a globally recognized provider of international education both in Canada and abroad. In 2015–16, 1600 international students from 100 different countries were enrolled in programs delivered in Canada with another 500 international students registered for language training at our Canadian campuses. Overseas, Algonquin, in collaboration with a local partner, delivers Algonquin programming at Algonquin College Kuwait. Algonquin also delivers programming with partner institutions in China, India, and Montenegro. International education, both in Canada and abroad, is a significant contributor to Algonquin’s activities, growth, and expanding global presence.
The College’s onshore international education programs and services include English for Academic Purposes programs (EAP), recruiting international students to enroll in post-secondary education (PSE) diploma/degree programs based in Canada, and exchanges that take the form of students studying abroad and faculty teaching overseas. Algonquin’s offshore international education offerings consist of bundled EAP and PSE programs offered in various partnership models, corporate and teacher training, and international capacity development projects.
