1st in the Province and the 1st in Canada!

Royal Roads University is the first public institution and Ashton College is the first private institution to receive BC's new provincial post-secondary EQA Designation!

BC's EQA Designation is inclusive of all private and public post-secondary institutions in the province and demonstrates the strong commitment to equitable value and representation of all institutions and sectors in the province.   The bridging of public and private institutions through one unified government seal creates an inclusive environment where students can rest assured that they are receiving the highest in quality post-secondary education – whether they choose to attend a public university or college, or pursue their studies at a private career training, vocational or language institution.

The EQA Designation allows schools such as Ashton College and Royal Roads University equitable exposure and representation in international provincial marketing collateral and inclusion on the province's official EQA Institutional Registry, which is promoted and published on both the BCCIE and EQA websites.  Ashton College is a reputable private career college in Vancouver, which offers a range of certification, licensing programs and courses in a variety of business and financial fields and Royal Roads University is a public teaching university offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs and a variety of vocational, career training and online learning options. 

No matter what your education path, British Columbia has the quality, credentials and variety to get you there.  Come and see why BC is the Best Place on Earth to Study!
