Atlantic Canadian College & University Tour

October 5, 2020

Representatives from eight Atlantic Canadian colleges and universities will be offering a virtual ‘Study in Atlantic Canada’ session on Wednesday [Oct 7].

A spokesperson said, “For the first time in over 15 years, Atlantic Canadian college and university representatives will not fly to Bermuda this week to connect with prospective students and their families about study in Canada.”

Katherine Cross, visit coordinator and Assistant Registrar at Dalhousie University, said, “We’ll miss the opportunity to meet with students and parents on our annual trip very much, but travel restrictions and public health protocols related to COVID-19 do not allow us to visit Bermuda this fall.

“We are still committed to supporting Bermudian students interested in studying at our institutions and have gotten creative about how we can connect virtually.”

The spokesperson said, “The eight participating post-secondary institutions have come together to offer a virtual Study in Atlantic Canada session the evening of Wednesday October 7, 2020. The session will include an overview of study in the region, as well as introductions from all eight participating institutions.

“Following the formal session, registrants will have the opportunity to connect with institutional representatives to ask their questions.

“We’re excited to engage with students and parents in this new way. They can expect to hear about the wide breadth and depth of academic programs available at our institutions. They’ll also learn about unique learning experiences, including opportunities to put their education into practice through work experiences, research, study abroad programs and hands-on learning, all from the comfort of their homes.”

“Participating institutions include Acadia University, Dalhousie University, Holland College, Mount Allison University, Mount Saint Vincent University, NSCAD University, Saint Mary’s University, and St. Francis Xavier University.

Registration is still open and details have been shared with counsellor contacts at public and private schools and with Bermuda College.”
