Durham College (DC) is thrilled to be one of the first Ontario colleges approved by the Canadian government to accept international students. This means international students not currently in Canada who have an approved study permit and are registered with DC can now travel to start or continue their studies with us.
DC is currently one of only four public Ontario colleges to receive approval. Designated learning institutions (DLI) across the country are required to have a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by their province that protects the health and safety of all students, employees and their surrounding community.
International students who meet the requirements may be able to travel to Canada effective immediately and must quarantine upon arrival per the Government of Canada’s regulations. During quarantine students must follow a number of requirements including staying in quarantine accommodation for at least 14 days, remaining isolated (no visitors) and arranging for necessities to be delivered to them.
We look forward to welcoming our international students to DC!
