North American delegates to visit CDU 


Representatives from American and Canadian universities are about to visit Charles Darwin University to take part in a seminar addressing issues of international education, including exchange and study abroad programs.

Australian Education International (AEI), Washington, is coordinating the visit to Australia which will include Darwin for the first time.

The seminar, to be held on Friday 28 September, will involve two specific discussion themes with speakers from the visiting delegates and CDU.

The Manager Study Abroad and Exchange from the University of Saskatchewan, Kelly Kozak, will provide an overview of the current situation of indigenous education in Canada, and discuss any particular issues with regards to indigenous education.

She also will provide a general perspective of indigenous students in Saskatchewan, and experiences Saskatchewan has had with international education.

The International Student Adviser from the University of St. Thomas, Tom Carey, will then present on the community college sector in the US, including an overview of articulation and transfer processes/agreements, how American schools assess students from community college, and international education trends in the community college sector.

Manager International Marketing & Recruiting, Fiona Richards, was able to entice the group to Darwin as a part of the working relationship she has fostered with AEI Washington at the National Association of Foreign Student Advisers Conference during the past two years.
