Several factors are considered for admission to Bodwell. We seek cultural diversity and look for students of academic and leadership potential from around the world. Our students succeed in a challenging English-speaking academic environment, demonstrate an interest in a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and are committed to serving their communities. Our Admissions staff evaluates various aspects including academic records from the previous three years, a personal profile, reference letters, an interview, and other demonstrated achievements.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Details on visas, custodianship, & insurance

STUDY VISAS

• A student visa application is the first step taken for an international student hoping to attend school in Canada. Students are advised to apply as early as possible at the nearest Canadian Embassy or Consulate in their home country. Click here to find a location. Each country has a different process and processing times for student visa application.

• Once the student has been granted a student Study Permit for Canada, the government office will issue an approval letter. This letter must be presented when the student arrives at the Vancouver International Airport or your first port of entry into Canada. Immigration Canada will replace the letter with a “study permit” which will be stapled inside the student’s passport. This is a very important official document.

• At Bodwell High School, the Admissions Staff is prepared to assist and guide with the process to renew the student’s study permit in Canada. If you would like the school to coordinate this process, please notify the Student Services Team three months before the study permit expires. It remains the students' and parents' responsibility to maintain a legal status in Canada and monitor visa and study permit expiration.

CUSTODIANSHIP

• International students whose primary residence is outside of Canada must have a Canadian custodian guardian. The Homestay Coordinator, Ms. Patrice Mitchell, is the custodian for all Bodwell students living in boarding or a homestay arranged by Bodwell.

HEALTH & MEDICAL INSURANCE

• Holders of valid Study Permits are entitled to British Columbia Medical Service Plan (BCMSP). There is a three month waiting period for BCMSP from initial entrance into Canada which is covered by a private insurance.
