Anex Colombia visits TMUIC and WLIC
Executive Director of the National Association of Agents, ANEX Colombia visited Toronto Metropolitan University International College (TMUIC) and Wilfrid Laurier International College (WLIC) campuses.
Last month, the Executive Director of the National Association of Agents, ANEX Colombia, Marcela Osorio R, visited Toronto Metropolitan University International College (TMUIC) and Wilfrid Laurier International College (WLIC) campuses located in Toronto and Brantford. This trip commemorated her first-ever visit to Canada and left her with a memorable impression.
“I traveled to Australia, the UK, the US, Europe and I really liked Canada. It was a pretty good first impression. I am amazed by this country and the province,” Marcela said. “People were so kind and respectful to each other. The Toronto city vibe is pretty good because it feels like a big city but at the same time it’s welcoming, with no rush mentality that other megapolises have. I am impressed, and I now understand why students would like to study in Canada.”
Marcela also appreciated the contrast the university town experience WLIC offers alongside the metropolitan environment enjoyed by TMUIC. Having two Navitas programs in Ontario allows students to choose the learning environment that fits them best.
WLIC and TMUIC marketing and recruitment team members, Leigh-Ellen Keating and Alena Khabibullina, gave Marcela not only a campus tour of their colleges’ iconic facilities but also city tours of Toronto, Brantford, and the beautiful Niagara region with its waterfalls and wineries.
“Alena and Leigh-Ellen were great hosts; they cared about each detail of our visit. They were very particular so I was able to get a taste of Ontario, the small town and the big city vibes,” Marcela stated.
TMUIC and WLIC are planning a series of events with Anex Colombia where the main goal would be to educate its members on the advantages of getting a university degree in Ontario.
“I learned about the Canadian education system and the differences between colleges and universities and all that extra support that you can provide to the students and their agents,” Marcela noticed. “I see a great potential because your programs are something unique that provide students with extra assistance and services, that is exactly what they need while assimilating to a new country environment. At the end of the day, successful completion of the program and becoming great professionals is what students, parents, agencies and business organizations are looking for.”
