    HCC can arrange to have a school representative meet students at the airport and drive them to their choice of accommodation already arranged. The school require a minimum of 2 weeks notice so all arrangements can be completed. We will send you a confirmation once your immigration process has been accepted.

  • Insurance

    It is mandatory for all students to be insured by a health provider while they are staying in Canada. HCC does not cover any medical or dental insurance; however, we are happy to arrange for private health/dental insurance coverage.

  • Immigration Services

    Canada is a very diverse and multicultural country. Majority of our students who come to Canada to study at HCC apply for a work permit after they finish their studies. Once they have gained experience and knowledge of the Canadian system, they apply for Canadian immigration. HCC is able to assist any students with their immigration process by setting up an appointment for them with an immigration lawyer.
