Tell us about Great Plains College

The university structure, facilities, and other services are clean and elegant. The school is accessible to transportation and other city services. The staff are so accommodating, nice and very approachable. Social life of students can still be improved with other school activities like meet-and-greet event, sport event and academic organizations or socio- cultural awareness programs that may attract students and be fully engaged with their school community.

    Great Plains College offers all of the things that international students need to succeed. This includes multiple student supports for settlement, academics, language, or finding employment.

    There are excellent opportunities for work both while you study or after you successfully complete your program and low cost of living in all of our campus communities. Saskatchewan has one of the best pathways to Permanent Residence in the country. All of these factors create an exceptional experience for our international student population.

    Our institutions really create a very warm, welcoming, and supportive environment for our students. Students are provided with as much or as little support as they require. This is something that all of our international students comment on. The Great Plains College community becomes their family while they are away from family.

    Our campuses are beautiful, welcoming environments for our student body. Each campus location has varying services, and facilities to enhance the student experience. Our graduates have a 90% employment rate within one year of graduating from a program. The employment opportunities currently available in the province of Saskatchewan are reason enough to join our Great Plains College community.
