McKenzie and Crandall University partner to provide pathway program

PRESS RELEASE

McKenzie College and Crandall University are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the goal of establishing partnership agreements for an English Language pathway, academic cooperation and collaborative activities.

Graduates of identified McKenzie English Programs are to be recognized as meeting the minimum language proficiency requirements for acceptance to Crandall University.

As the agreements are signed, the institutions will identify mutual marketing opportunities to recruit international students and share the benefits of the partnership with external partners such as international recruitment agents.

The institutions will exchange research materials in order to maintain the highest quality and up-to-date educational programming.

The MOU is effective immediately and will continue for a minimum of three years.

McKenzie College has recently obtained accreditation from Languages Canada, and is one of only two accredited English language schools in the province of New Brunswick, and one of two hundred and twenty public and private institutions across the country.  Languages Canada is the premier language education association that is recognized internationally for program excellence. The program at McKenzie College specializes in all levels of English language training with a focus on English for business and academic purposes.

Crandall is the largest private University in the province, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in liberal arts, and currently includes students from sixteen countries. This agreement will allow the University to expand its international reach.

The recruitment of international students is seen as an economic driver and benefit to the region and is part of both provincial and federal governments’ strategies and initiatives.
