Universities and college campuses are places where students live and study in close proximity to each other.
Universities and college campuses are places where students live and study in close proximity to each other. They are also buzzing cultural hubs where students are brought together from nations around the world. Recently, the foundations of this unique ecosystem have been impacted significantly by the rapid spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, creating uncertainty regarding the implications for higher education. Over the past weeks, education officials have been forced to cancel classes and close the doors to campuses across the world in response to the growing coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, at BWEG approximately 370 students successfully completed self isolation offered across our institutions completely at no additional cost.
BWEG is in support of its students right from the moment they land – we meet and greet them at the airport, transfer them to various hotel apartments where meals, grocery and sanitization kits are provided. Upon successful completion of quarantine, the students then move to 2 months free accommodation where they can kick start their Canadian dreams.
All this is difficult to comprehend and its impact on recruitment, admissions, and marketing for schools in the coming years is still to be analyzed.
At BWEG, our students are our number 1 priority and to ensure the best interest of our students we have organized online classes in their time zones for reference Indian students were able to attend e-classes in IST time zone organized by Canadian faculty.
During these unprecedented times institutions are struggling to comprehend a master plan for bringing students to campus. It is unfeasible to foresee when international travel restrictions and the requirement for quarantine, will be removed.
“In many ways, the crisis has rather acted as a wake-up call for schools, a reminder that even the best laid plans can be disrupted by circumstances far beyond their control.” said Rohit Uppal – Vice President at Bestway Education Group. He further added “It is prevalent that there are many lessons learned from the pandemic to eventually shift the education sector for the better”. He is a highly result driven, energetic, and passionate edupreneur with over a decade of experience in developing strategic business partnerships and ecosystem in Canadian Higher Education sector.
