There are a vast number of student services available at Sprott Shaw College, which help the students both old and new in numerous different ways. The following are a few of them:

  • Academic Advising
    • We help plan for programs and curriculums suitable for international students, selecting the best study plan for students who wish to pursue further education, seek employment or apply for immigration in Canada.

We run a series of background and reference checks for host families in our database to ensure a perfect match between you and your family.
    • Students are required to submit a homestay application form and arrangement fee at least two weeks prior to arriving in Canada. This will allow sufficient time for matching students and their homestay family as well as allow us to send students all of their homestay information ahead of time.

Student housing suites start at 2 bedrooms, 800-square feet, and are complete with glass showers and soaking tubs.
