The president of Red River College is in India this week working to recruit international students to Manitoba.
“Our India relationships benefit the college, the province and India,” said RRC president and CEO Stephanie Forsyth from Delhi, India. “Foreign students, who pay the full cost of their education, allow us to develop even more programs and seats for Manitobans.”
The college will sign agreements with five educational institutions this week, resulting in hundreds of new students studying in Manitoba and becoming enrolled in the college’s many post-secondary programs.
Indian students enrolled in RRC classes is expected to address the province’s shortage of skilled labour and increase other opportunities for students living and studying here already.
The institutions the college will work with abroad are Bal Bharati Institute, Continental Institute for International Studies, Knowledge Consortium of Gujarat, St. Mary’s College, and Xplora Design Skool.
