A Warm Welcome
All RED students are part of the RED family, which means access to amazing resources to help students hit the ground running with their lives in Canada or England. Whether that’s help finding a place to live or the best places to unwind on a Friday night, our team’s got you covered! Take part in social events and guest speakers at the school, and field trips to explore the city. You’ll have tons of opportunities to get to know the city, make new friends and broaden your network.

- Duolingo English Test 67 or higher
- TOEFL iBT score of 90 or higher (TOEFL Paper score – 575 or higher)
- IELTS Academic score 6.5 or higher

Once you arrive, look forward to orientation week. Check out the school, meet the instructors, hang out with incoming students and explore the neighbourhood. Before you start class, get fully informed with student policies and rules of Immigration in your country of study. We also assist our students with the details of applying for a Social Insurance Number and Health Insurance if needed, where applicable.

Enjoy your work-study in one of Canada’s most beautiful cities with the mountains and the beach at your finger tips.
Vancouver Is Awesome
Vancouver is all about the outdoors. Ski world-class slopes in the winter, hike in the rainforest in the spring and fall, and of course, have a BBQ on one of the local beaches in the summer.
A Thriving Tech Industry
They call it the heart of “Sillicon Valley North”. Why? Because Vancouver has a vibrant tech and design industry with a diverse mix of start-ups, agencies, and well established companies like Microsoft, Hootsuite, Mozilla, Metalab, EA, Lululemon and more.
It’s Warm Here (Compared To The Rest Of Canada 😉 )
Always wanted to come to Canada but too afraid of the cold? Vancouver is for you. The climate in the Pacific North West is temperate year round. Clement winters mean that when it rains downtown, the mountains are getting snowed on, which is perfect for skiing and snowshoeing. Summers are hot and dry which is exactly what’s needed for patio season.
Our Vancouver campus is located in a part of town which is easy to access via transit or bicycle, and there are plenty of trendy shops, cafés and restaurants nearby. Our space is filled with natural light and overlooks the breathtaking North Shore Mountains.
Join our campus in Toronto, Ontario’s capital, where you will be surrounded by a mix of beautiful green parks and soaring skyscrapers including our iconic CN Tower.
A Buzzing City
They call it the “Fashion District”. Why? Because the area is filled with artists’ studios and galleries, publishers, agencies and tech offices such as Shopify, Uberflip, Twitter, The Working Group, Cossette and many more.
Find Inspiration Everywhere
Toronto is the melting pot of Canada where people from all backgrounds and cultures mingle over a diversified and outstanding food scene, an endless number of vibrant patios, and of course our beautiful waterfront.
Our Toronto campus is located in the heart of Downtown with a beautiful view of the CN Tower. We are steps away from public transit, bike paths, and cafes. Getting here is easy!
An True Canadian Experience
Always wanted to come to Toronto but afraid of the cold? Don’t be! Winters here are best enjoyed with loved ones skating at City Hall, or in a cozy restaurant next to a fireplace. While winters get chilly, our summers are hot and dry which is exactly what is needed for a beautiful beach day filled with lots of laughs and good memories. Who can resist the 6ix?

World-Class Tech Industry
