The new interactive University Pathway website will let you search through over 2,000 programs offered by our Canadian partners (Colleges and Universities) from Certificates to Bachelor’s or Master’s Degrees. In the coming weeks, we’ll be adding courses and programs from our USA and Australian partner schools.

On Saturday August 31, 2013, ILSC was deeply honoured to receive the 2013 STM Star Chain School Award at Study Travel Magazine’s annual Star Awards Gala! ILSC has been shortlisted in the past number of years for the STM Star North American School Award, and last year, for the Star Chain School award as our continued global growth moved us into this new category (STM defines a Chain School as any school with 5 or more locations). As a fairly new entrant in this category, we reached out to our partners from the perspective that we’re a small chain school with lots of heart, strength, and diversity, and that lets our students be unique. We are extremely humbled to have won this award which is a sign of recognition from our many industry partners. ILSC’s success and strength is due to our collaboration with, and support from so many amazing partners who work with us in providing transformative learning and living experiences. Our partners continually push us to innovate and grow in response to changing needs in this dynamic industry. Thanks so much to the many people who have supported us to get to this point!

In July, ILSC-Vancouver held a very successful and well attended "Latin American Festival" at the school. The concept for cultural festivals was inspired by ILSC-Toronto and has been repeated across ILSC campuses since then. The Vancouver festival had 30 student volunteers who helped make the event a success, and representatives from various Latin American consulates including Peru, Brazil, Mexico, and Columbia. Local businesses and enterprising students came together to provide traditional Latin American cuisines, and to showcase a variety of dancing styles. The event was a great way for students to share their cultures with one another, and we look forward to holding many more cultural festivals in the future across ILSC. Watch the Latin American Festival Video to get a taste of the action.
