SC – Institute of the Arts is proud to have accreditations and partnerships through PTIB, BC EQA, EduCanada and UBCP. Furthermore, students are provided assurance of a quality level of education and protection through the BC Ministry of Advanced Education.
These seals are recognized worldwide, and make domestic students eligible to receive Student Aid through the government of Canada. These allow international students to be eligible to receive study permits through Immigration Canada.
In addition, UBCP and SC – Institute of the Arts are partnered to allow graduates of a full time acting program of 1,000 or more hours to earn their first union credit. To receive this, students must complete both the 6-month Film, Television and Voice-Over diploma program in addition to one of the 9-month Conservatory diploma programs. This is a big first step to help actors start their career in the industry.
Above all, our goal is to provide students with all the tools required to work in their field. This credit is a perfect reflection of these values.
These all combine to make SC – Institute of the Arts one of the top schools for domestic and international students looking for careers in acting, animation, screenwriting, video game programming or video game design.
We are committed to offering you your best chance for success at SCIA.
