Beifang has more than 200,000 students in 22 universities in China, and the five-year agreement will allow students from Beifang’s bachelor’s degrees to be eligible for UCW’s MBA program, subject to certain criteria.

TLG Canada will then offer its university pathway program to students in need of further assistance with specific requirements, such as English language requirements.
UCW president Brock Dykeman said that by incorporating this program, the partnership will ensure Beifang students have all the resources required to access higher education in Canada.
“We are delighted to announce this collaboration with Beifang, which is a well-established education provider in China and beyond,” said Brock Dykeman, UCW president.
“This partnership is a decisive step forward in the international development of our institution. Working together, we hope to open the doors of higher education in Canada to a greater number of international students.”
The agreement was signed by Dykeman and Cyndi McLeod, CEO of GUS Canada, on behalf of TLG Canada.
“TLG Canada has been providing great support to UCW’s students to ensure they possess the best English skills to study in Canada. Its participation in this partnership will now help Beifang students to make the most of this opportunity,” said McLeod.
Miao Yang, CEO of the North America company for the Chinese education group, represented Beifang at the ceremonial event.
The partnership will officially start in autumn 2020, when UCW and TLG Canada will welcome the first cohort of students from Beifang.
