Canadore forms new partnership with UOITWednesday, December 18, 2013 by: Kate Adams
A new agreement between Canadore College in North Bay, Ontario and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa will allow Canadore students to pursue a range of degree programs at the university.
The partnership designs a seamless process for qualified students from select Canadore diploma programs to apply credits towards six UOIT undergraduate degrees without having to repeat successfully completed courses.
“This agreement demonstrates UOIT’s commitment to providing students with seamless pathways to degree completion,” said UOIT President Tim McTiernan, who is also a past President of Canadore College .
“Given my past relationship with Canadore, I am particularly pleased with this agreement. We look forward to ongoing collaboration between our two institutions and to creating new opportunities for our students.”
Students from Canadore’s business, health sciences, and community, justice and police studies will be able to take advantage of articulations into undergraduate programs in adult education and digital technology, allied health sciences, biological science, commerce, criminology and justice, and nursing.
“Canadore shares in the commitment to provide all students with seamless pathways. We have a responsibility to make it easier for people to obtain a career-oriented education,” said Canadore College President George Burton.
“We are facing a drastic national skills mismatch which could leave over 700,000 people unemployable by 2021.
Working with UOIT gives students choices to be prepared to meet the needs of the global marketplace.”
UOIT and Canadore are committed to providing students with flexible pathways to diploma-to-degree options, and are looking to add more articulations to their agreement in the near future.
Canadore trains people through applied learning, leadership and innovation. It provides access to over 65 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and student services.
Approximately 1,000 students graduate from the College each year, and they join 40,000 alumni working across the globe.
