*Please note that an English proficiency assessment may be required if you did not complete high school or post-secondary education in an English speaking country. This assessment helps gauge your English language proficiency in reading, writing, and verbal skills. The Natural Nutrition Diploma Program is intensive and includes technical, scientific, and medical language. Success in the program depends upon English language proficiency and this should not be a barrier. The cost of the English proficiency assessment (if required) is $250 plus applicable taxes.

*International students who would like to apply for a study visa to study/live in Canada must enroll in our one-year hybrid/blended program. Virtual programs do not qualify for study visas.

*It is the student’s responsibility to speak to CIC and research the possibility of a post graduation work permit. CSNN Vancouver can not guarantee that international students will be granted with a work permit upon completion of the Natural Nutrition Diploma Program.
