Your INSA support network
Supports the growth, progress, and success of international students at INSA.
Coming from abroad?
INSA students come from a vast range of nations, cultures, and walks of life. With 40 percent of our students coming from outside Canada, and over 60 countries represented in our student body, INSA is the country’s most international school.
INSA is proud of its long tradition of welcoming talented students from inside and outside Quebec. We look forward to further broadening the diversity of our student body to include more Indian students, francophone and students of lessor financial means.
Some more good news: If you’re interested in working while you’re here, you can apply for a work permit after graduation. This is a great way to support your studies while gaining valuable work experience.
ARE INSA COURSES ACCREDITED?
WILL THERE BE TEACHERS WHO SPEAK MY NATIVE LANGUAGE?
We teach our courses purely in English or French. However we will find a translator for any serious issues if necessary.
DOES INSA ACCEPT GROUP BOOKINGS?
Yes, INSA Management School does take full groups of students for courses. For more information, please contact us via our special groups contact form, or directly e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
