Students and academic staff of the Barbados Community College will be presented with new learning opportunities in Canada.
This after the institution signed a memorandum of understanding with Academy Canada recently, outlining several areas in which the two will collaborate.
However, officials from both campuses stressed the relationship will not be one-sided as opportunities for student and staff exchanges in both directions are being discussed.
Academy Canada’s Vice President of the Academic Department and Chief Operating Officer, Lisa Lovelady said the transfer of credits for advanced standing and articulation agreements between the two institutions are high on the agenda.
Meanwhile, Registrar of the BCC, Roger Worrell said the BCC is pleased to have these types of relationships with Canadian educational institutions, which allow the College’s students to move seamlessly.
The senior official noted items like the planned articulation agreement and credit transfers stand both institutions in good stead.
