International Opportunities

The focus on global citizenship within the CBE, prepares staff and students to think, act, and speak in diverse cultural settings with awareness and world-mindedness. This empowers us to move from one cultural setting to another with confidence and competence.

 International Certificate

​The International Certificate is a way of recognizing and valuing the significant contributions, work and experiences of an international nature that students will accomplish throughout their learning journey.

Students must complete three modules and create a final summative project. The modules are participatory in nature, asking you to engage in your local, national and international communities. For detailed information see the International Certificate ​booklet.

It is easy to enrol in the CBE International Certificate Program!
