About Arbutus

Most jobs today require fluency in English, a detailed knowledge of industry concepts, and a few years of work experience. However, how can one gain the necessary experience without having enough experience to get a job in the first place? Arbutus College can help.

Students attending Arbutus College will improve their communication skills while developing in-depth industry knowledge and securing valuable work experience. Students will enhance their credentials by obtaining parallel accreditations from Arbutus College’s industry-leading educational partners and by completing co-operative education programs, which offer the students an opportunity to work in local businesses.

Arbutus College was established in 2002, with the key objective to provide students a unique business and communication educational structure not available elsewhere in Vancouver. Various surveys conducted with over 1000 graduates from the College reflect a high level of satisfaction in their chosen programs of study. As a result, our students have increased confidence to compete for good positions in the job market.
