Travel and accommodations
If you’re in a field school program, Douglas College International will usually direct you to book a specific flight to ensure you arrive with your classmates as a group.
We will try to book the most affordable flight meeting the requirements of the field school; however, you will need to book your own flight if you are involved in exchanges or a work study program.
You can find information and book flights directly through the airlines, travel agents, or on-line travel web sites. If you or your family has travel points, consider using these to lower the cost of your flight.
If you are participating on a field trip your accommodation is normally included in your program fee. Students on exchange and work/study can expect to receive assistance from the institution or workplace abroad to arrange local accommodations.
If your flight leaves from Vancouver International Airport (YVR), visit the airport website for more information about departures, arrivals, services, and getting around.
