Camosun, Miriam College sign partnership to give students new study opportunities


Camosun College and Miriam College in the Philippines have signed a five-year partnership that will provide students with the opportunity to study on each others’ campuses. While students will flow in both directions, Camosun VP of Partnerships Geoff Wilmshurst stated that more Filipino students are expected to travel to Canada. Wilmshurst further told the Times Colonist that it is important for the college to recruit from a wide variety of countries in order to “insulate ourselves from shocks like COVID where, for example, an entire country like China decides its students can’t leave.”
