Canada has always been the most preferred destination for higher education amongst the Indian students which can be evident from the fact that more than 1.40 lakh Indian students took admission to various Canadian Universities in 2019 registering an increase of 35 per cent over the previous year.
Keeping the current situation in mind, Chandigarh University has come to offer relief to the Indian students who wished to travel to Canada in 2020 for their higher education. Chandigarh University has joined hands with top-ranked Canadian Universities, Okanagan College and Vancouver Island University, British Columbia, Canada to offer International Articulation Programs in Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Computer Applications, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelors of Computer Sciences and Degree program in Hotel Management.
"Indian students need not waste their precious academic year due to COVID-19 but can apply for Canadian Universities through these Articulation Programs offered at Chandigarh University. The students joining these programs will study one or two years at Chandigarh University and will migrate to Canada to complete their remaining academic learning tenure," said Dr RS Bawa, Pro-Chancellor, Chandigarh University, while giving details about the International Articulation Programs.
In addition, Chandigarh University will also offer in-house IELTS Training and Visa Interview Training to the students during one or two years of their academic stay at university.
