GKU-Crandall Uni sign pact for Educational Programme
A high level delegation led by Dr. Bruce Fawcett, President and Vice Chancellor of Crandall University(CU), New Brunswick, Canada visited the Guru Kashi University(GKU) today. The other members of the delegation were Dr. Jon Olhlauser (Provost, CU), Mr. Greg Cook (Chair, Board of Governors, CU), Mr. Shan Padda (Solicitor and Immigration Consultant) and Rahul Massey (Immigration Consultant). The delegation held parlays with the authorities of GKU that included Dr. J.S. Dhaliwal (Chancellor, GKU), Gurlab Singh Sidhu (Chairman, GKU), Er. Sukhwinder Singh Sidhu (Secretary, GKU), Sukhraj Singh Sidhu (M.D., GKU) , Dr. B. S. Dhaliwal (Vice Chancellor, GKU), Dr. Jagtar Singh Dhiman (Registrar, GKU) and Deans of concerned colleges. Through power point presentations, the academic programs and other information about both the Universities were exchanged.
The dignitaries were shown around the, classrooms, laboratories, sports & game facilities, research areas and other landmark infrastructure. An interactive session with prospective candidates and their parents was held in which the queries were addressed by the CU team. The members of the delegation were appreciative of the state-of-the art facilities and infrastructure available at GKU.
After thorough deliberations, an Articulation Document (MoU) was signed by Dr Bruce Fawcett (President & Vice Chancellor, CU) and Gurlabh Singh Sidhu (Chairman, GKU) in the presence of other dignitaries from the two Universities.
The agreement highlights that a GKU student can be admitted to the B.B.A. or B.Com degree programs at CU after completing two years of B.B.A. program at GKU and then completing two years at CU. After completion, he will be awarded the degree by CU. This degree will make students eligible for permanent residence (PR), work permit, etc. in Canada. Generally students have to study for four years in Canada for the completion of the degree but with the signing of the agreement between GKU and CU, the students will be benefitted in terms of curtailing expenditure to half, besides the much sought after PR in Canada in considerably short time. Further, the students will get the benefit of medical health insurance from the Government of New Brunswick Province; otherwise this health care insurance is quite expensive. With the endeavours of GKU authorities, the fees structure, for the students who opt for this programme through GKU, has also been made reasonable, in comparison to other Canadian Universities.
As many as 50 students will be opting for this international B.B.A./B.Com program, from the Academic Session (2018-19).
