International Students Parent Information
Welcome to Herzing College! We’re excited to have your family become a part of our family.
At Herzing College, we know that sending a child across the globe to attend school is an important, life-changing event. In addition to the financial commitment and physical separation, your son or daughter is taking the first steps toward independent adulthood.
That’s a lot of change all at once, so we offer programs and one-on-one support to ensure a smooth and safe transition for your son or daughter.
A High-Quality Education
Canada is recognized as having a distinguished education system. As part of that system, Herzing College has programs and courses that feature the current and future knowledge and skills employers look for in college graduates. Our expert faculty members are leaders in their fields. We pride ourselves on giving individual attention to our students through our 18:1 average student-toprofessor ratio in our classrooms.
Assistance with Visa Requirements
For international students, the Canadian education visa process can be intimidating. The staff at Herzing College is very familiar with the visa process. At Herzing College, we’re here to assist your child with that process every step of the way. The vast majority of our qualified international students receive their student visa.
Cultural Support and Housing
Herzing College professionals in student services can help support your child in addressing a variety of areas such as dietary, religious, or other cultural needs. We can help your son or daughter find the right place to call home during his or her stay at Herzing College.
Health Insurance and Medical Care
Herzing College coordinates with health insurance providers. A variety of plans are available for students to purchase, and the plans cover most major medical expenses after any deductible or co-payment requirements have been met. We recommend that you review the available plans in detail to ensure that the best plan for your individual health situation is selected.
