University Partners®


Columbia International College’s excellent international reputation and superior students mean our graduates are in high demand at prestigious universities and colleges in Canada and around the world.

We formalized our relationships with more than a dozen of these top schools in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Australia with our highly successful University Partners program. Participating schools recognize the quality of Columbia’s students, offering them advantages such as conditional letters of acceptance as soon as they’re admitted to our university preparatory program and special scholarships.

This gives families and students peace of mind that their futures are secure, confidence that they have access to the best opportunities and a seamless transition to university and college programs at schools that are part of our University Partners program. We’re proud that Columbia’s excellent track record makes for a brighter future for our students. And we’re constantly adding more schools to program.


Conditional letters of acceptance

Immediately after being accepted into the university prep program at Columbia, students may receive conditional offers from partner schools.

Fewer TOEFL requirements

Once they’ve taken Columbia International College’s English course, our students will have their TOEFL requirements waived or reduced.

Special entrance scholarships

Our top graduates are eligible for special entrance scholarships that are reserved for Columbia students, as well all regular scholarships and awards at participating partner schools.

Guaranteed admission to your program of choice

Some schools in our University Partners program guarantee admission to a student’s first choice of program when they meet admission requirements. For more information, see our Dual Admissions page.
