What our students say...

“My decision to study at Arbutus College was right. I have been studying Japanese/English translation and interpreting at Arbutus for about three months. I still remember that I was so nervous on my first day worrying if I would be able to catch up with classes. However, thanks to my professional, considerate teachers, advisor and friendly enthusiastic classmates, I am learning a lot regarding translation and interpreting skills and also about the beautiful city of Vancouver and Canada.”

Mio, Japan
“I just love Vancouver so much! The people are really friendly here, very helpful and polite. However what I appreciate the most about Vancouver is the local nature. I have many favourite places in Vancouver. These would include the top peak in Vancouver, Grouse Mountain, peaceful Stanley Park, the beautiful beach with amazing sunsets, English Bay, and the entire seawall along the ocean that everyone can walk on for hours.”

“I’m happy that I got to study Business Management at an affordable price in a very friendly environment. I also enjoyed the location. Vancouver is simply beautiful. It’s a place where you can enjoy the beach and the mountains on the same day!”

Jeferson, Brazil
“I really wanted to take Hospitality Management. Because Arbutus College was highly recommended by international education agencies, I went for it. I have vastly improved my English thanks to Arbutus College and I’ve also made many international friends that I spend a lot of time with. I feel really prepared to take on a career in the hotel industry because of my hospitality management classes and my English communication skills. Arbutus College is not only my school but is also my second home. Vancouver is such a lovely place, with all the nice people and all its beautiful spots like Kitsilano Beach!”
