SAIT is located in Calgary, Canada, the largest city in the province of Alberta. During your semester at SAIT, you will experience a multicultural city with a diverse history. Calgary is a well-known destination for winter sports and ecotourism, with a number of major mountain resorts near the city and metropolitan area.

The Course:
The Global Education Network offers its students the opportunity to study internationally at SAIT in Calgary. Students can gain a unique advantage: preparing for work in a global environment.  Students will be enrolled in formal classes at a host college, and (pending visa arrangements) may choose to work abroad to supplement your savings. You may receive credit for academic courses you complete on exchange, live the lifestyle of students in the host country, make new friends and have the opportunity to form lasting relationships.
