GUWAHATI, Jan 29 � Thirteen Canadian universities and three colleges have embarked on a four-day tour of Guwahati, Shillong and Kolkata from Tuesday.

This is the first time that Canadian institutions have come together under the Canadian Government�s �Edu-Canada� banner to showcase undergraduate study opportunities in Canada for the students of the North-east region of India.

�Canada sees a lot of potential to build its education brand in the region. Our universities and colleges are eager to introduce their quality programmes to bright students from the North-east who are looking at studying abroad,� Canada�s First Secretary and Trade Commissioner, Ivy Lerner-Frank, said.

The road-show aims to provide a platform for students to interact directly with Canadian institutions of higher learning and get authentic information about education opportunities, requirements and admission processes. A visa official from the High Commission will also be available to provide information on visa application process and timeliness.

In Guwahati and Kolkata, the group will be visiting schools. The event in Shillong will be open to the public. Details can also be obtained from www.icbc.org.in.

Canada is emerging as an increasingly popular destination for higher education among Indian students. Last year, Canada issued over 21,000 study permits to Indian students, a five-time increase from 2008. The current stock of Indian students in Canada is over 46,000.

Canada is internationally recognized for a competency-based teaching approach that prepares students to be productive in the workplace immediately after graduation. Canadian universities and colleges are known for their consistent high quality in teaching, research and campus facilities. Tuition is also affordable, when compared with other top education destinations in the world.

Meanwhile, a 22-member Canadian delegation representing universities and colleges visited Royal Global School today and had an interaction with the students of Classes XI and XII. Organized under the Canadian Government�s Edu-Canada banner, representatives from 12 Canadian Universities and colleges and officials from the Immigration section of the Canadian High Commission interacted with the students to provide firsthand information about the Canadian academic system and programs, especially the undergraduate courses.

The students were briefed on education opportunities, requirements and admission processes. The delegation was led by Ivy Lerner-Frank, First Secretary and Trade Commissioner, High Commission of Canada. The students interacted well and it was a satisfying session for both the students and the delegation.
