MANILA, Philippines—The Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) has partnered with the government of British Columbia in Canada to widen students’ and teachers’ access to and opportunities to study or work in colleges and universities through an exchange program.

CHEd said on Friday that it agreed to work with the province of British Columbia on the following priority fields in education that “need global training”: nursing, maritime education, sustainability, innovation, aviation, animation, and indigenous people education.

A memorandum of understanding was signed in Vancouver City last week between CHEd Chair Prospero de Vera III and Lisa Beare, British Columbia’s minister for post-secondary education and future skills, to strengthen the promotion of education exchange programs in both the Philippines and Canada.

While there are already at least five universities in the Philippines with ongoing programs with higher education institutions (HEIs) in British Columbia, De Vera said, “this … will further expand the access to international education opportunities [for] Filipino students and faculty in the priority areas.”

Other programs

According to CHEd, among the Philippine universities with a history of education exchange programs with British Columbia HEIs are Miriam College, the University of the Philippines, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, the Philippine State College of Aeronautics in Pasay City, and World Citi College in Quezon City.

De Vera, who is leading the Philippine delegation to Canada, will also meet with Ryan Grant, Nova Scotia’s deputy minister for advanced education, to explore possible partnerships in the Canadian province.
