International Students

Students from around the world have found a home away from home not only at the Randolph College, but Toronto as well. The College has welcomed students from Australia,  Dominican Republic, Iceland, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, South Africa, South Korea, and Taiwan.

International students find Toronto to be a welcoming city; indeed, Toronto is considered one of the most multicultural cities in the world, while Canada is considered the World’s Friendliest Country (Forbes) and the Country with the Best Reputation in the World (Reputation Institute, 2011 Country Rep Track).

International students must meet the same audition requirements as domestic students, with one addition: applicants for whom English is a second language must provide adequate proof of English speaking and writing proficiency. Applicants whose first language is not English must make their own arrangements to write an accepted test of English proficiency and submit the results to the RCPA Admissions Director either by email or mail. Accepted tests of English proficiency are as follows: 

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

  • Internet-based testing (TOEFL iBT): an overall score of 83 or higher with a minimum score of 20 in each component.

International English Language Testing System (IELTS)

  • An academic score of 6.5 or higher with a minimum of 6.0 in each band.

Applicants who qualify to attend RCPA based on their application and audition, but have not submitted test results or met our English proficiency requirements may be awarded a conditional offer of admission to the college until adequate results are received. This condition may be met by submitting a satisfactory score on a test of English proficiency.

Once accepted, students who are not citizens or permanent residents of Canada are required to secure a study permit and/or a temporary resident visa before entering Canada to attend school, and to submit renewal papers as required two months before the permit expires. More information can be found at the Citizenship and Immigration Canada web site:

Please note: International students attending any Private Career College in Ontario, including RCPA, are not eligible for a post-graduation work permit (PGWP).

Tuition for international students is $13,800 per academic year effective September 2018 ( (3 Academic Years in total). Scholarships may be available. 

Once enrolled, international students may consult with the Student Services Director (416.924.2243 ext. 236 / regarding a wide variety of resources and programs, including but not limited to:

  • Housing support
  • Health insurance
  • Academic and peer counselling support
  • Local cultural or religious community organizations
  • Social service supports in the community
  • Embassy or consulate contacts

RCPA will not, under any circumstance, retain or withhold a student’s passport or visa documentation.
