Background

The BC Offshore School Program helps advance International Education in BC by creating pathways that support BC Offshore School students who are considering coming to BC to study, live and work.

In 2016/17, approximately 12,500 students studied in BC Offshore School Programs located in seven countries. More than 2,000 students graduate from BC Offshore Schools annually. In China, there are over 35 certified BC Offshore Schools.

BC Trade and Investment Office in Beijing (BCTIO Beijing) organized two successful BC Offshore Mini Fairs in North China. In 2016, ten BC post-secondary institutions participated in the 4-day program, visited 5 BC offshore schools in Shandong Province and met with over 500 students and their parents during the tour.

With the support of the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology, BCTIO Beijing, and BCCIE, we are pleased to invite you to attend* the BC Offshore School Mini Fairs in North China in the Fall of 2018.

Target audience: EQA-designated public and private degree-granting post-secondary institutions
