There’s an opportunity for Saskatchewan post-secondary students to conduct their studies abroad.
That’s from Saskatchewan’s Minister of Advanced Education and Innovation, Tina Beaudry-Mellor.
Beaudry-Mellor attended the G-20 Education and Employment meeting in Argentina, where it was learned that other countries are willing to pay for university undergraduates from the province to study there.
“Turkey, for example, was a country that was very interested. India is very, very interested.”
The Minister mentioned most of those countries have resources and scholarships for interested foreign students as they want students living in those countries to be exposed to English speakers.
The conversation also had a strong focus on digital literacy.
“China was really aggressive on this front,” she said. “Digital literacy there starts in kindergarten. They encourage graduates of some of their post secondary institutions to start business immediately upon graduation and give them start-up monies to do that.”
