Find yourself spoiled for choice

Nestled along the shores of Canada's great Lake Superior is the city of Thunder Bay. At the geographic centre of Canada and home to around 110,000 people, Thunder Bay is known for its reputation of being clean, safe, and friendly making it the perfect choice for international students!

With its main campus in Thunder Bay, Confederation College offers students a pick of more than 50 different academic programs. The subject areas range from the more traditional including Business, Accounting, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Marketing, and Human Resource Management to the more unique. Imagine, for example, following your love of travel to complete a diploma in Adventure and Ecotourism… or taking a slightly different path, and perhaps studying the art of Culinary or Hospitality Management. Confederation College also offers diplomas in such diverse areas as Television Broadcasting, Forest Ecosystem Management, and Aerospace Manufacturing.

But wait a minute, you might ask, does attending a 'college' versus a 'university' hurt my chances of gaining employment later on? Absolutely not! With 90.3% of all students accepting employment within six month of graduation, Confederation is rated #1 for graduate employment across all of Ontario. And with 93.8% of employers stating they are either satisfied or very satisfied with their employed Confederation College graduates, there is a clear consensus a Confederation education properly prepares a student to enter the working world.

Or, for students who are interested in continuing their education, a Confederation diploma can also act as a stepping-stone towards receiving a university degree. As the college has articulation agreements with a number of universities, both across Canada and abroad, international students can now follow their Confederation diploma with a university degree, after only one or two more years of study!
