Become an international student at Holland College!


If you are interested in studying abroad, Holland College, located in Prince Edward Island, Canada, could be just right for you! Holland College is an internationally recognized leader in hands-on, skills-based training.

Located on the east coast of Canada, Prince Edward Island is the country’s smallest province – but there’s nothing small about the educational opportunities that await you here. Students from all over the world are choosing to make Holland College their home while they pursue their educational goals. We hope you do, too!

Holland College offers more than 65 programs on five main campuses and centres across the province. 

Many of our international students choose to stay in Prince Edward Island over the summer, when there are plenty of jobs. And our graduates are finding jobs, too!

Our tuition is less expensive than many U.S. and international schools, and 18 of our programs are approved by the U.S. Department of Education for the processing of the Title IV William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans.

We have over 150 degree pathway agreements in place with universities and colleges across Canada and the U.S., and around the world. This means you can earn your diploma here and then earn your university degree in as little as two additional years. Find out more about the degree pathways for each program in the program pages.

We are a publicly funded post-secondary institution with ISO 9001:2015 certification, and many of our programs are nationally accredited.
