International Students

Welcome! Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! Willkommen!  Hwangyong-hamnida!
International Students are those who:

  • Are neither citizens nor permanent residents of Canada
  • Must apply for and obtain a study permit if they wish to study in Canada*

* Citizens or permanent residents of a country other than Canada must apply for and obtain a study permit if they wish to study at Briercrest for a period of more than six months.

Over the years, students from across the world  have joined our family at Briercrest and have made this small-town community a  home-away-from-home.  Come see for yourself and join us at Briercrest for a life-transforming education. We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Apply Arrive Student Life "Briercrest has been one of the best experiences in my life so far. Being able to play sports and grow in my relationship with God have been huge for me. Briercrest is the place to find warm-hearted people in a cold town. Awesome experience, I cannot thank God enough for this opportunity given to me."

"As an international student, I leave this message to you. In Briercrest, you will struggle with ceaseless overwhelming challenges not coming from language or cultural barrier but from the lengthy silent time that you solemnly face God's Word and reflect on it. It will give you the life-transforming experience by His double-edged sword."

International Student Program Designation Revocation Process
In the event that Briercrest College and Seminary is no longer a designated learning institution for international students, we will be committed to assist our current international students as outlined in our  
Revocation Process.

I learned not to take the easy answers when dealing with Scripture and theology, but to deal with uncomfortable and challenging questions, wrestling with both the text and my own biases to best determine what is true and God-pleasing.
