Collège Boréal signs mobility agreements with European institutions
Monday, July 11, 2016 – Sudbury – Collège Boréal
Students at Collège Boréal will now have the opportunity to expand their horizons, thanks to the possibility of school exchanges in Belgium and France. Recently, Collège Boréal signed its two first overseas mobility agreements with the Haute École Provinciale de Hainaut Condorcet (HEPH-Condorcet) in Belgium and the École Pratique de Service Social (EPSS) in France.
It should be noted that Collège Boréal and these two institutions share a number of areas of interest and similar educational objectives. By signing these agreements, these institutions commit to encourage their student population to benefit from travelling to another country to learn. Moreover, these agreements will foster academic and sociocultural cooperation, allowing for exchanges of information relevant to the programs and courses they offer.
The agreement with EPSS applies first and foremost to disciplines associated with community services such as Social Work, Early Childhood Education and Child and Youth Work, while the agreement with HEPH-Condorcet pertains to technical and scientific areas of expertise, such as Agriculture, Computer Sciences, Automation, Mechanics and Chemistry.
These three year agreements will enable students in France, Belgium and Canada to increase their knowledge and immerse themselves in new cultural experiences, allowing a greater understanding of the world.
“We are particularly proud of how this project has evolved; it certainly fits perfectly with our objectives set out in the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan. A study trip will enrich students’ post-secondary experience, thanks to the relationship established between the participants and the host communities, the cultural richness and the consolidation of knowledge. It will truly be an exceptional experience for participating students. ”
