NSCC International

NSCC Internationalis the conduit through which the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) participates in international projects and activities around the world and at home. Creating international learning opportunities for students and employees is an essential element of NSCC’s vision to transform lives and communities through learning.

In support of this vision, NSCC International focuses on the following activities:

  • International Learning Programs: student and employee engagement in international learning programs at home and abroad that enhance global awareness and employability skills;
  • Technical Assistance (TA) Projects: externally funded international projects with international partner institutions that create opportunities for employees and students to share their expertise and learn in an international context; and
  • International and Immigrant Student Experience:building capacity at NSCC to create welcoming communities, enhance the international and immigrant student experience and on campus international learning opportunities for NSCC students and employees.

NSCC’s geographic areas of focus (Andean South America, Caribbean, East Africa, EU, Southeast Asia) are aligned to those of Nova Scotia and the Government of Canada/Colleges and Institutes of Canada.

Creating international learning opportunities for students and employees is an essential element of the College’s vision to transform lives and communities through learning. This approach contributes to NSCC’s mission of building Nova Scotia’s economy and quality of life through education and innovation, and also supports provincial goals of increasing global competitiveness and fostering welcoming communities for immigrants here in Nova Scotia.

NSCC International’sVisionis one in which NSCC students and employees will have a strengthened world view developed through experiential international learning opportunities at home and abroad. Further, NSCC International’s Vision is one which sees NSCC play an important role in fostering cultural and attitudinal change in Nova Scotia to create welcoming communities for immigrants.

This vision reflects and supports key messages put forth in the ONE Nova Scotia Coalition Collaborative Action Plan, We Choose Now, as well as the 2016 Atlantic Growth Strategy regarding the critical importance of retaining international students to join the Nova Scotia workforce, and increasing the number of NSCC graduates with international experience to support Nova Scotia export sector growth.
