OTTAWA – Students, parents and guidance counsellors searching for the right university and degree program have a helpful new tool at their disposal with today’s launch of universitystudy.ca, an online resource about Canadian higher education. The searchable directory includes university profiles and AUCC’s popular study program database – a top-ranked site averaging 60,000 queries a month. Universitystudy.ca also features articles and tips for students planning their education and resources specifically for Aboriginal students.
“With this new website, AUCC is pleased to help students navigate the breadth of high-quality universities and programs offered across Canada,” says Paul Davidson, AUCC president. “More than one million students will be heading to campuses this fall and universities are committed to supporting their success, from selecting the right program to finding rewarding careers.”
Universitystudy.ca features more than 10,000 university study programs. With 30,000-plus visitors each month from outside of Canada, the new website will play an important role in international student recruitment.
AUCC is the voice of Canada’s universities at home and abroad, representing 97 Canadian public and private not-for-profit universities across the country.
