The city of Calgary is the capital of Alberta and it’s considered one of the best cities in the world to live in. Currently is also considered the cleanest city on the planet so it’s a perfect destination for students who want to study for an academic year program close to an urban environment, and surrounded by spectacular nature options like mountains or top class ski resorts. Calgary hosted the Olympic Games on 1988 and has some of the best ski facilities a resorts on earth, perfect for ski or snowbarding enthusiastics.
Alberta is also one of the most Canadian provinces since most of their students are domestic and their international population at schools is significantly lower than any other area in the country like British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario or Newfoundland so it’s undoubtedly one of the best options available for students who want a real Canadian immersion and focus the entire length of the program improving their English skills.
All the schools we selected at International Academic Programs are really modern and with state of the art facilities, some of them with millionaire renovations in every aspect of the campus: academic buildings, labs, 3D printers, laser cuts, cutting edge technology programs, and amazing sport fields like soccer, rugby, tennis, basketball or volleyball among many other specialties. The same goes for art programs since students get to join theater, drama, movie and tv production, dancing, ballet and all kinds of music specialties.
About the environment, spectacular nature surroundings are just miles away from the city and allow all kind of activities like hiking, fishing, camping, kayaking, and many more students get to experience with their host families.
The city is very safe and offers many easy transportation options like public buses or the Sky Train so students get to travel to movie theaters, shopping malls, museums, bowling centers or sport events on their own in a very fast, cheap, safe and comfortable transport system. This way they don’t need the host family to drive them around and is undoubtedly an amazing destination for students used to live in major cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Munich, etc and want to study an academic year abroad with all the amenities of a big city.
