We’re here for your student
Student life is an integral part of your child’s journey and we want them to make the most of their time at SAIT. Student success is at the core of a SAIT education, in and outside of the classroom. Our supportive instructors and small class sizes provide your child with the guidance to succeed in their studies. Students can also hone their study skills, ease exam anxiety and get extra support from an academic coach or tutor.
A home away from home
Living in residence helps to enhance the student experience and helps your child transition from living at home to living independently. It also cultivates understanding, tolerance and respect for others and exposes them to new friends through the various activities we offer. It may be hard to let go, but you can support your student from home with your encouragement, sending a care package or coming for a visit!
