Vancouver Medical English Institute
A unique Medical English Program for medical professionals
VMEI can help students find a place to live. There are many different types of accommodation you can choose from. One of the most popular and affordable types of accommodation is homestay, where you live in a home as part of the family.
If you need somewhere to stay while you look for a more permanent place to live, the YWCA and Hostelling International are reasonably priced. There are many hotels near VMEI. Some of them are the Ramada, the Victorian Hotel, the St. Regis, the Burrard Inn and the Days Inn.

Arriving by Air
Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is approximately 20 kilometers from VMEI. The Institute will pick up registered students from the airport free of charge on Saturday or Sunday. If you arrive on another day or have not made prior arrangements with the Institute for a pick up, a taxi will cost about CDN $25-30 to downtown.
You can catch a special bus (The Airporter) which goes downtown and leaves every 15-30 minutes for about $12.
You can also use public transportation which only costs about $3, but it is not very convenient if you have much luggage.
