The international preparatory center Fraser International College operates on the basis of the famous Simon Fraser University (7th place in the national ranking) and provides effective programs for university entrants.

Studying is provided by university teachers - they provide knowledge on exactly the disciplines that students will later teach at the university. Classes are formed small, which gives teachers the opportunity to more carefully treat each student, practice a personal approach, more effectively draw up an educational program.

The international center of Fraser International College is distinguished by an international atmosphere: here students will constantly interact with representatives of different nationalities and cultures, absorb new traditions and customs, become more tolerant, learn to respect someone else's opinion and point of view. Here there is a warm, friendly atmosphere - new friends will be able to start almost from the first day, which will further simplify and facilitate adaptation in the new environment.

All students can reside on the campus of the university, in comfortable residences on a boarding school basis.

Fraser International College has 2 degrees of preparation, each of which lasts one year. In order not to lose time, the most successful and persistent students can apply immediately to the 2 preparatory courses - this will require demonstrating a high level of English and a school certificate with high scores (grades 4 and 5 only).
