MITT is excited to join virtual celebrations across Canada and around the globe to mark International Education Week 2020 and highlight the ongoing importance of international education in our world.
Throughout the pandemic, we have remained committed to helping international students find opportunity through education, here in Manitoba and here at MITT.
Our recruitment team and immigration advisor are always available to answer your questions and connect with you through webinars and other virtual learning opportunities. In addition, our blended program delivery model—consisting of virtual learning through our MyLearning learning management system, as well as in-class technical skills training—has helped ensure safe, continuous learning for all students.
We are so proud that students from dozens of countries around the world choose to study at MITT each year. Because we know that diversity and inclusion—the building blocks of strong and prosperous societies—work best when all people can access knowledge and training opportunities that enable them to contribute in unique and beneficial ways. Our campus community is diverse, just as Manitoba’s communities and workplaces are diverse, and we provide all our students more than just technical skills; we teach values such as inclusion, teamwork, communications, and respect that help our students lead and succeed in all aspects of life.
As we give thanks to the many ways international students contribute to our college, our province, and our country, we remind you that our programs are open and that our staff are here to help you.
