Markham, Canada, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Visionary Education Technology Holdings Group Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: VEDU), a private education provider located in Canada that offers high-quality education resources to students around the globe, today announced that on June 23, 2022, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Farvision Education Group Inc., entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Camosun College, a public college located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Camosun College is accredited by the Province of British Columbia to deliver various education programs to international students who wish to obtain a two-year associates diploma, a four-year university degree, or a post-graduate diploma and who may eventually wish to transfer to another post-secondary institution in British Columbia to pursue a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree.
Pursuant to MOU, the parties agreed to develop a cooperative arrangement whereby Farvision will establish “Study Abroad Prep Schools” in China in which Chinese students will begin their post-secondary education taking Camosun College courses for one year before coming to Camosun College to complete their degree programs at Camosun’s Vancouver campus. Earning a degree from Camosun will enable those students to transfer to other post-secondary institutions in British Columbia via the British Columbia Council on Admission and Transfer (BCCAT) system. Under the MOU Farvision and Camosun will explore other cooperation projects, which are expected to include a Public Private Partnership (“PPP”), a Camosun College-MTM Animation Game Joint Collaboration Center, and an English for Academic Purpose (“EAP”) program.
Mr. David Xu, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, commented, “We are very pleased to embark on a partnership with Camosun College to offer diversified education programs and excited about the opportunity to provide international students with recruitment pathways to pursue education in Canada. The intended partnership with Camosun College is a reflection of our effort to continue our growth plan to collaborate with colleges and create more international academic opportunities for students. This partnership will help fulfill our mission to broaden access to the multicultural education system of Canada and facilitate the achievement of students’ full potential. Partnering with Camosun College will enable us to strengthen our education programs and access more than 100 different programs, certificates, and degrees offered by Camosun. We expect to help international students prepare for having an education in Canada and access to comprehensive education resources in the province of British Columbia in Canada.”
