Top Canadian universities to tour India

New Delhi, Aug.16 : Nine elite Canadian universities are coming to India from August 19th to August 31st, 2013 to meet with top Indian students and discuss Canada as a premier destination for higher education.


The delegation is led by Robert Finlayson of Carleton University in Ottawa and Michelle Beaton of Ryerson University in Toronto.

The tour, organized by the Canadian Higher Education Committee (CHEC), under the aegis of the Council of International Schools (CIS), is in its ninth year and will include stops in Mumbai, New Delhi, Dehradun, Hyderabad and Bangalore.

The tour is of special interest to Standard XI and Standard XII students who exhibit strong academic standing, school guidance counsellors and parents. The tour schedule will include a combination of visits to select school and information fairs.

"India is a key undergraduate student market for Canadian universities," said Robert Finlayson of Carleton University and Tour Director. "Indian students are sought for their academic strength and their rich contribution to student life on Canadian university campuses. Each year we are seeing more Indian students choosing Canada as their first choice for study - as evidenced by the success of this tour. Indian students are drawn to our universities' common attributes of international reputation for academic excellence, state of the art resources, and safe campuses in welcoming locations," Finlayson said.

List of participating universities in 2013: University of British Columbia, Carleton University, Concordia University, Guelph University, McGill University, Queens University, Ryerson University, University of Toronto, York University.
