Indian students contemplating safer and more affordable options closer to home, but are still planning to study abroad, can now take advantage of Eton College Canada’s partnership agreement with Punjab’s premier institution, the Rayat-Bahra University (RBU), to establish an Eton Global Location on campus.
In the agreement brokered by MSM Higher Ed, students can begin their Eton College Canada programs at RBU, serving as Eton College’s local learning centre. After completing an Eton College diploma in their home country, they can study for two years at any of Eton’s Canadian partner institutions or two and a half years at a New Zealand university as various pathway options.
The pathway universities offering 2-year bachelor’s degrees are Canada’s Royal Roads University, Capilano University, City University of Seattle – Vancouver Campus, University of Canada West, and Vancouver Community College, along with Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
Transnational Education Amid the Pandemic
Not only does the deal assist Eton College Canada’s program expansion, but it also boosts pathway and career opportunities for Indian students affected by mobility restrictions from the pandemic. Students under this pathway program whose family income has been disrupted will be able to save high costs of international tuition fees and living abroad expenses because they can transfer their studies to foreign institutions at a later time.
Situated near the Tricity of Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali, RBU is a recognized institution of the University Grant Commission of India and the State Government of Punjab. Lavishing in a lush and serene landscape, the university takes pride in its engineering, pharmaceutical sciences, dentistry, management, and law schools of excellence.
Hundreds of RBU graduates have been hired by blue-chip companies, multinationals, and domestic enterprises from on-campus and off-campus recruitments. Similarly, scores of RBU’s research scholars have presented their papers at conferences in India and abroad and contributed to prominent research journals.
Apart from RBU, Eton College has a global presence in Pakistan (Gabriel College), the Philippines (Lyceum of the Philippines-Batangas), and Sri Lanka (Horizon Campus). These global centres also deliver Eton College’s programs that are the ticket to pathway programs in Canada and New Zealand.
