Institutional Profile

Assiniboine Community College provides an excellent balance of theoretical and practical education, to prepare students for careers in Agriculture and Environment, Business, Health and Human Services, and Trades and Technology. While our programs are open to secondary school graduates, university graduates are often drawn by the leading-edge technology and practical training that provides them with an edge in the employment market. We are known for our "small school atmosphere", low student-teacher ratios, and innovative technology. However, low tuition fees and low numbers of international students mean that we can offer limited international student supports and services.
