TRU World is looking to expand its global influence and attract more foreign students to Kamloops.
Vice President Baihua Chadwick was in Brazil where post secondary education is free.
She says the demand for post secondary education far outstrips supply and that’s where TRU can play a role.
“Increasingly there are more private institutions and of course the private institutions were charging a tuition fee. In Brazil the government has initiated a number of initiatives to promote internationalization.”
Chadwick doesn’t expect to attract hundreds of students from Brazil calling it a long term goal to increase those numbers.
