Twenty-two Canadian universities and colleges will arrive in Thimphu in the second EduCanada delegation for a two-day visit on July 26. 

The EduCanada delegation offers a valuable platform for Bhutanese students, education consultants, school or college principals, and other influential individuals to engage in meaningful interactions with representatives from Canadian educational institutions and officials from the government of Canada, according to a press release from the embassy of Canada.  

During the event, potential Bhutanese students will have the opportunity to learn about the courses, scholarships, students’ experiences, accessibility, affordability, and career paths offered by the participating universities and colleges, the press release stated. 

In addition, the delegation programme provides an opportunity to acquire insights into studying and living in Canada, obtaining student visas, understanding the Canadian business environment, and future prospects upon graduation. 

Ambassador for Canada to Bhutan, Cameron MacKay, said that the second EduCanada delegation to Bhutan offers an opportunity to learn more about studying in Canada, adding that Canada’s globally-recognised educational institutions promote experiential learning, strong entrepreneurship, and cutting-edge research and innovation.

“I encourage students from Bhutan to take full advantage of this visit and learn more about the benefits of studying in Canada and the opportunities that it can open up for them,” Cameron MacKay said.

There will be seminars, education roundtables with consultants, and meetings with government officials and academic institutions to enrich the educational exchange experience.

The event will host the Study in Canada seminar on July 26 at the Le Meridian hotel for all aspiring students and parents.
