Bandar Seri Begawan - Representatives from four Canadian universities are currently in the country on behalf of their respective universities to attend the three-day Canadian Education Roadshow 2013 that began yesterday at the Rizqun International Hotel in Gadong.
Following the exhibition at the hotel, the roadshow will then continue at five other education institutions, namely the Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan Science College, Duli Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah College, International School Brunei, Jerudong International School and Meragang Sixth Form Centre.
According to the spokesperson of the Canadian High Commission in Brunei Darussalam, the number of Bruneians studying in Canada has seen a rise every year and more so with the availability of government scholarships to pursue education there.
The roadshow not only caters to A-Level graduates, but also opens up opportunities for advanced students to learn more about the opportunities of learning at degree or PhD levels in Canada.
At yesterday's roadshow, students who had interest in universities in Canada also had the opportunity to express their intentions and learn more about the education institution that they chose through interactions with representative education officers at the Canadian High Commission.
The represented universities at the roadshow organised by the Canadian High Commission are University of Prince Edward Island, Carleton University, Emily Carr Art and Design University and the University of British Columbia.
