Niagara College welcomed more than 65 global recruiters from over 20 countries as part of the annual Study in Niagara Familiarization (FAM) Tour from April 29 to May 1.
The tour is a collaboration with Brock University, the District School Board of Niagara and the Tourism Partnership of Niagara, and invites global educational recruitment agents to tour participating institutions, learn about the region and meet faculty and staff.
Participants of the FAM tour assist prospective students in learning about Canadian education and provide essential services to help them navigate the processes required to arrive and study in Canada. In addition to the college’s services, campuses and facilities, the FAM Tour allows recruiters to personally experience what makes Niagara College, its community and the Niagara Region unique and attractive.
“International recruitment agents play a vital role in bringing the NC experience to prospective students around the world,” said the college’s Vice President International Sean Kennedy. “Welcoming these representatives and giving them an in-person look at our campuses and operations helps them bolster Niagara College’s strong reputation abroad as a global college with diverse learning opportunities for students around the world.”
What recruiters learn during their time at the College and within its community helps NC’s partners to support, inform and engage students as they weigh their study options abroad.
“By visiting the College, we can get a better idea of what the benefits are to studying here,” said Rostyslov Kozlov, manager of educational programs abroad at Russia-based Students International. “Not only do you get to see the College’s campuses and facilities, but also the community the College resides in and the region.”
Niagara College offers more than 130 diploma, bachelor degree and advanced level programs; as well as more than 600 credit, vocational and general interest Part-Time Studies courses. Areas of specialization include food and wine sciences, advanced technology, media, applied health and community safety, supported by unique learning enterprises in food, wine, beer, horticulture and esthetics.
