Atlantic Canadian Post-Secondary Fair On Feb 6

February 5, 2017

Building on the success of their fall outreach in Bermuda, six Atlantic Canadian universities are returning to the island to host a follow-up Atlantic Canadian Post-Secondary Fair at Bermuda College on Monday, February 6 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

Brittany Wood, international admissions specialist at St. Francis Xavier University, said, “We had record attendance at our fall fair and look forward to reconnecting with many of those families on this visit, as well as meeting new students and those who are just starting to explore their post-secondary options.”

A spokesperson said, “Prospective students, their parents and family members are invited to attend the fair on Monday to learn more about their education options at six distinct universities on Canada’s east coast.

“Acadia University, Dalhousie University, Mount Saint Vincent University, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, St. Francis Xavier University and the University of Prince Edward Island will all have representatives on hand at the event.

“The universities will also be visiting most secondary schools on the island on Monday and Tuesday and representatives from many of the universities will be hosting individual advising appointments with families during their visit to help students and parents prepare for their next steps.”

“The Canadian university admissions process is well underway for September 2017. The fair at Bermuda College, school visits and individual appointments are one of the many ways these universities are providing support to interested and incoming students.”

“There are many decisions and questions facing students and parents as they prepare to graduate from high school,” says Alyson Murray, assistant registrar at Dalhousie University.

“We hope that our events and advising appointments will provide them with additional information and answer their questions so that they can move forward in their university selection process with confidence and support.”

“Atlantic Canada is a natural choice university for students from Bermuda thanks to its geographic proximity and convenient flight options, shared time zone and the positive exchange rate against the Canadian dollar.”
