About Us


SELC was founded in 1985 in the city of Sydney, Australia, and in 2012 opened a campus for SELC Vancouver, Canada. SELC Vancouver has gone on to become a respected and established college for vocational career and language training in Vancouver. Here at SELC Vancouver, we have developed our own brand, unique culture and warm atmosphere, which has helped separate us from larger, less personal institutions. Students arriving at SELC for the first time are usually surprised at the range and quality of excellent facilities and support that SELC has to offer. Students immediately gain a sense of a personal and nurturing learning environment, an intrinsic value in SELC’s student culture. SELC is a place where everybody knows your name and where students feel at ease and welcome.

President & CEO Message

Welcome to the exciting world of education in Canada. With your success as a primary focus, our main objective is to provide an education that will guide you towards a meaningful career. SELC College is honoured to be a part of your journey. Never before have students needed mentorship and guidance as much as today in these current times and we intend to fulfil our mission to be a “Beacon of Light” for all our students – like a Lighthouse that provides safe passage from perilous waters. At SELC we believe in ‘Directed Learning,’ from industry professionals that serve as instructors and career counsellors who have gained the necessary experience in the workplace to guide students to enter the workforce.

We believe in our students and we are standing by to assist them before, during and after they graduate whether it be to provide lifelong free refresher training, lifelong free upgrading or lifelong free job placement assistance and support. SELC is proud to be one of the few remaining post pandemic Language and Career Colleges to survive the recent COVID-19 Pandemic crisis and we are more ready than ever to play our part as an applied learning destination in the private post-secondary education landscape of British Columbia and Canada.

Through all the adversity we’ve had to face, our staff have shown their resilience and commitment towards change as we adapt to the new age of applied learning in a COVID safe environment. We are pleased to have met the standards of the Canada Health Authorities for the new measures of DLI (Designated Learning Institution) COVID approvals to accept international students from abroad.
