VGC Activities

VGC International College Offers its Students a Wide variety of Activities to Complement Their English Studies


Here at VGC, we understand that your trip to Canada is more than just studying – it’s the experience of a lifetime! We want you to have as much fun as possible using and refining the new language skills you have acquired as you make new friends in Vancouver. For business students this is a great way to network.

To ensure that students have the time of their lives, VGC organizes its very own afternoon activities and excursions, from local sightseeing outings to weekend trips to the majestic Rocky Mountains, or kayaking trips on the Sunshine Coast. By being part of the VGC family, you can join one of our once-in-a-lifetime weekend excursions, and also choose from a variety of other exciting Canadian cultural experiences. This will ensure that you make the absolute best of your time here in Canada. Learn to ski and snowboard in the mountains of British Columbia, kayak along the shores of downtown Vancouver and Granville Island, enjoy a tasty beach BBQ in Stanley Park, fish for salmon, catch a Canucks hockey game – the adventures are endless.
