Important Information for Post-Secondary Students Applying from within Canada (currently holding a valid Post-Secondary Study Permit):
We are currently prioritizing applications from students who have not had the opportunity to study at a Canadian institution. As a result, we are not currently accepting applications for Winter 2019 onwards entry from individuals with valid post-secondary study permits.
If you wish to be notified if and when we have seats come available, please complete the form at: bit.ly/douglasinternational. Upon completing the form, you will be added to our mailing list and we will contact you if a seat comes available, with further instructions on how to apply. Please note that you do not need to complete this form if you are located outside of Canada and do not have a valid post-secondary study permit. Visit our How to Apply section and follow the necessary steps.
Important: Please do not submit an application online or via email until you have received confirmation from us that a seat is available. Applications submitted online will automatically be charged a $100 application fee. There is no guarantee we will have seats available or that you will be admitted, and once you have submitted the application the $100 application fee is non-refundable.
