Study NB aims to attract more post-secondary students

By Brad Perry Aug 21, 2023 | 5:10 AM

New Brunswick has launched a new initiative to promote the province as a place for post-secondary students.

Study NB is a partnership between the province and eight publicly funded post-secondary institutions.

The goal is to increase enrollment at the institutions by raising awareness about them.

While, at the same time, highlighting opportunities that are available while living in the province.

“This unprecedented collaboration among our publicly funded institutions bodes well for the future of post-secondary education in New Brunswick,” Post-Secondary Education Minister Arlene Dunn said in a news release.

“We commend their shared desire to promote our excellent educational opportunities and we are excited about Study NB’s potential.”

The Study NB website will allow prospective students to explore which programs each institution offers or to search for which institutions offer their program of interest. Information on student financial assistance is also provided.

The collaborative will also recruit both within the country and internationally through advertising and promotional events.

Participating institutions include the University of New Brunswick, St. Thomas University, Université de Moncton, Mount Allison University, NBCC, CCNB, New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, and Maritime College of Forest Technology.

Those institutions will expand upon their existing individual efforts and participate in events that will help elevate the province’s overall post-secondary education experience.

Officials said there are plans to welcome more schools to the initiative in the future.
