International students are most welcome at Rosebud School of the Arts in our Open Studies Programme for six months. We offer a breadth of training in a vibrant community of Christian artists, preparing you for artistic leadership in the place where God calls you.  Rosebud School of the Arts has welcomed students from Malaysia, Slovakia, Uganda, Thailand, Sweden, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and U.S.A. Although the application process may take a little longer, we will offer support along the way.

English language proficiency
RSA requires that students demonstrate an adequate level of speaking and writing in English. Students need to understand English sufficiently to participate in all aspects of classes, including lectures, reading, writing, and discussion. English competency is assessed through the interview and written component of the application process.

Study Permit
Students are not able to study with Rosebud School of the Arts for any period longer than six months, so a study permit is not required. The process of entering Canada and obtaining a study permit is described in detail on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website at www.cic.gc.ca. The work of obtaining a study permit rests with the student, but we will help you when you get stuck. Please read through all the instructions on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website and contact us with questions.

Health Insurance
Students from countries other than Canada are required to obtain health care insurance. Students who intend to stay in Alberta for 12 month of longer are eligible for the Alberta Health Care Insurance Program (AHCIP). See http://www.health.alberta.ca/AHCIP/temporary-residents.html. Students who intend to stay in Alberta for less than 12 months are strongly encouraged to purchase adequate medical coverage before arrival.
