Information offered on post-secondary

NANAIMO – Event at Nanaimo District Secondary School includes students and parents.

Fifteen B.C. universities and colleges will attend a free public post-secondary information night Nov. 3, starting at 7 p.m. at Nanaimo District Secondary School.

This is the third year the Post-Secondary Institutions of B.C. will host parents and secondary school students as they decide which college or university program they might attend. The goal is to help attendees access information directly from institutions and better understand the B.C. post-secondary system.

While post-secondary representatives have visited high schools around B.C. for years, the school-hour schedule has traditionally made it difficult for parents to participate. The evening includes a presentation focused on the many post-secondary options and paths for students in B.C., followed by a fair for attendees to interact directly with all 15 institutions in attendance.

PSI-B.C. is a collaborative, student-centred group acting as partners in supporting students and high school counsellors in B.C. high schools.

The group strives to assist students in their search to find both the institution and the program available in the province that best fits their personal and career objectives.

Attending universities and colleges include: Canadian Forces – RMC, Camosun College, Capilano University, Douglas College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, North Island College, Quest University, SFU, Thompson Rivers University, Trinity Western University, UBC, UNBC, UVIC and Vancouver Island University.
