Highlights from Ontario Universities Fair – Trent University
The annual Ontario Universities fair was held at Metro Toronto Convention Center from September 23-25 2016. I marked it down in my calendar as a must go. My intention was to speak with as many universities as possible and get them to speak to the international community about their university and what was unique about their institution.
The day came and it was bright and sunny, my first surprise was the number of students and parents, it was a sight to behold. So the rush began, everyone had questions, everyone wanted answers. I had the privilege of meeting with a few universities who were more than ready to talk to me when I told them my audience was international students.
I am highlighting Trent University for a number of reasons:
They have been ranked #1 in Ontario and #2 in Canada in the primarily undergraduate category
They have some unique programs that I feel will interest the international community
One of the representatives was able to talk about Trent University in glowing terms I hope you can hear what he said (he spoke so fast)
4. I actually met and had a chat with the President of the University, Leo Groarke, who obliged me by giving me a video recording as well as an open invitation to visit the university. Which I plan to do.
Listen to what he has to say about Canadian Education in general
PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT – DUAL DEGREE LLB AND BA
A new program for 2017 that excites me is the Law and Arts Dual Degree. Getting a law degree in Canada will usually take not less than 8 years because it is a second degree. Trent University has teamed up with University of Swansea in Wales so that after 6 years the student gets an LL.B. and a B.A this is wonderful news to both domestic and international students.
The student starts off with Trent for year 1, and 2 then in year 3 the student proceeds to Swansea for the next 3 years to obtain the LL.B. The student will then return to complete the final year in Canada. The courses in Swansea will cover Canadian Law that will help the student prepare for the required National Committee on Accreditation (NCA), allowing the student to take the bar exam and practice Law in Canada.
Throughout the program the student pays tuition fees to Trent University
There are several BA program options open to the student such as Media and Development, Rights and development, cause of war, local dynamics of change, Global health, Gender and women studies, Environmental and resource studies, Philosophy, Political studies, the list is endless.
