Canadian universities to beat the drum for recruits next week
A string of Canadian universities is to run a virtual event designed to attract Bermudian youngsters to study in the country’s Atlantic provinces.
Eight universities will take part in the session and topics covered will include an overview of education in Canada and information on the institutions involved.
Katherine Cross, the assistant registrar at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, said: “Choosing an institution and programme is a big decision, especially abroad.
“We encourage students to start the process early and take advantage of opportunities, like our upcoming virtual event, to inform their decision making.”
The Study in Atlantic Canada event will be held on Monday night.
Ms Cross said: “Atlantic Canada has long been a top study destination for Bermudians and we look forward to connecting with students and parents.
“While interaction remain virtual for now, we are optimistic we will soon be able to return to Bermuda to connect in person.”
Ms Cross added that the university group hoped to return to Bermuda in October next year to restart their traditional tour of schools and public information night.
Universities taking part in the virtual event are Acadia University, Dalhousie University, Holland College, Mount Allison University, Mount Saint Vincent University, Saint Mary's University, St Francis Xavier University and the University of Prince Edward Island.
Registration for the event is still open and more information is available from counsellors at public and private schools and Bermuda College.
