Langara College Profile Maclean's

Set in Vancouver, Langara College offers degree, diploma, certificate, and continuing education programs in more than 60 areas. Langara was among the first institutions in B.C. to develop a co-operative education program, and also implemented the first formal Aboriginal education policy in the province. Langara boasts a glowing university transfer record, with more students transferring to universities in B.C. than any other college. Students can opt to engage in applied research projects in partnership with local industries as a way to hone their skills and network in their field.

Langara offers programs and courses in arts, business, science and technology, humanities and social services, and health, as well as interdisciplinary programming through its department of interdisciplinary studies. One standout feature is the Langara School of Nursing, which was named “School of the Year” at the Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA) national conference.

Langara does not offer residence on campus. International students are encouraged to look into the Langara homestay program, where specially selected host families provide accommodation, meals, and the opportunity to join in family activities and excursions to learn about Canadian culture.

Langara offers Aboriginal students services such as orientation, counselling, advocacy services, and access to the Gathering Place, a multi-purpose space. Students can also seek guidance from the college’s elder-in-residence.
