CNC partners with overseas institutes

The new partnership will offer overseas opportunities for students, employees and professors.

Students enrolled at the College of New Caledonia (CNC) may have the opportunity to explore new horizons after CNC president Henry Reiser visited India to establish ties with post-secondary institutes there.

Reiser met with Indian post secondary officials from Narayana Health, a teaching hospital in Bangalore, India and OP Jindal University in the city of Raigarh to explore the options of international study.

Reiser signed a series of memorandums of understanding with the two Indian institutes that will include a five-year agreement to develop international exchange programs between the three educational groups.

The agreement also includes development opportunities for instructors and college employees abroad, meaning that it is not only the students that will have the opportunity to travel the globe.

In a release issued by the CNC, the college said they expect that their health sciences and power engineering programs will benefit from the new agreements, particularly in regards to collaborative projects, lectures and seminars.

Minister of Advanced Education Amrik Virk said that the international agreement will benefit the British Columbia economy saying,

 

“Opening our doors to students, teachers and ideas from India enriches B.C.’s economy and communities,” adding, “The College of New Caledonia is embracing opportunities for research and development activities that will enable people from British Columbia and India to learn from each other.”
