Our International Student Exchange programs take students to Austria, Italy and the Philippines, and bring students from those countries to learn at NAIT. It's a wonderful way to immerse students in the food, culture, history, and surroundings of another country. These international experiences add depth and breadth to their practical skills and will influence them throughout their careers.
