Academic Advice

Our staff is always available to help our students make decisions about their studies at and beyond ALCC. We welcome students to discuss their language study plan, post-secondary education and even their career goals. We are always on hand to offer guidance and advice on any academic issues that may arise while at ALCC. 

University and College Placement

Are you worried about your university or college application?
​We have helped many students complete their post-secondary application and can help you with yours. Whether you are applying for a certificate, diploma or bachelor's degree, we can help you easily complete your admissions applications.
Are you planning to apply for graduate studies?

​Graduate applications are often complicated and difficult to complete. We can help you ensure that your application stands out when applying to a graduate program. Let one of our academic advisors help you find the best suited graduate program for you and guide you through the full application process.

High-School Placement and Support

We have helped many international students enroll in both public and private high schools. Along with our partner organizations, we help prospective school students find the right place for them. Once they are enrolled in the school of their choice, we help the students plan an after school support program to suit your academic needs. We work to ensure that students have a positive experience at school and receive the support needed to help them succeed.

Custodianship for Minor Students

We offer a safe and welcoming environment for younger students. If you wish for your child to study in Canada, and can not accompany him/her, we can provide custodianship. Find peace of mind by allowing our trusted and experienced custodians take care of your loved ones.

Airport Pick Up

Don't worry about how you will get from the airport to your accommodations. Give yourself peace of mind by using our airport pick up service. We offer a ride from the airport, regardless of when you arrive, and a safe family setting to stay in for as long as you need.

Apartment or House Rental

As Halifax is the home of more than 40,000 students a year at our many universities and colleges, there are many choices open to you. There are a wide variety of options, including furnished apartments, unfurnished apartments, university residences, hotels and even houses for rent. We hire a company that specializes in finding our students the right housing choice, along with providing other necessary settlement services. Let us know what your housing needs are and we will try our best to find a place that is best suited for you.

Homestay

We carefully choose homestay families who wish to welcome international students into their homes and hearts. Living with a Canadian family allows you to practice your English, learn Canadian culture and provides extra support as you adjust to a new life in Canada. Our students will get a private room, a space to study and 3 meals a day, while being able to create great new memories for life.

If you are looking forward to living with a homestay family or would like to be a homestay provider, please complete the application form underRegistration>Downloads and email it back to info@alcc.ca.

Student Health Insurance

All students studying and residing in Canada must have health insurance. We provide a comprehensive health care plan with our long-term health insurance partner to ensure the best care.  Students will need to sign up for health insurance unless they can provide proof of coverage.
