According to several research reports, the present education scenario encourages students to pursue self-study, rather than spending countless hours sitting in classrooms and following the concept of "study hard." Hanson Canada is a premier post-secondary Canadian institution because it fosters a specialized, individualistic approach to education. Hanson students find themselves free to study independently while gaining practical work experience, and they get to enjoy the best of living in Canada as a young adult. For international students staying far from their homeland, this learning environment helps students to build their personal and professional endeavours and immerse themselves in Canadian Culture.

"Hanson's team of experienced and talented instructors ensures a productive and supportive learning environment"

A private education group, Hanson Canada is headquartered in Ontario and has three subsidiary divisions: Cambrian at Hanson, Hanson School of Languages, and Hanson International Academy. Hardeep Kaur, Interim Vice President of Marketing and Admissions, proudly states, "in 2005, Hanson Canada entered into a licensing agreement with Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology, one of 24 public colleges in Ontario, to form Cambrian at Hanson. Since then Hanson has been delivering Cambrian College programs exclusively to international students." With the main campus located in Sudbury, Ont., Cambrian College offers various post-secondary programs including business, hospitality management, human resource management and on the partner campuses operated by Hanson in Toronto, Brampton, and Vancouver. This allows students to earn a public college credential at four locations.
Apart from Cambrian College, Hanson also offers international students the opportunity to pursue studies in other two subsidiary divisions of Hanson Canada. Hanson School of Languages is an educational center offering English as a Second Language (ESL) support, including general ESL classes and English for Academic Purposes (EAP). "Hanson International Academy, offering an Ontario Secondary School high school program, provides an opportunity to those who wish to go to either university or college with 'significant support from academic perspectives," explains Hardeep Kaur. The institution ardently values innovation, creativity, and collaboration and strives to promote the same while instructing the students.

A completely student-centric approach is followed in all the campuses, where the first priority is given to students. Hanson's team of experienced and talented instructors ensures a productive and supportive learning environment. Activities are differentiated in order to accommodate the diverse range of student learning preferences and interests. Hardeep Kaur notes that "as the leader in public-private education, we avail our students with the best-personalized learning experience by guaranteeing a small class size." In addition, the instructors teach with utmost integrity and provide immediate attention and feedback to students whenever required. "Students are motivated to acquire hands-on activities and real-life application of skills, resulted in which our students feel stimulated, supported, and successful in obtaining their respective degrees in the campus," adds Hardeep Kaur.

A Home Away from Home

Moving abroad is an exciting experience - the new sights, people, and adventures. Unfortunately, these exciting experiences come with loneliness, unfamiliarity, and uncertainties. To help with this adjustment, Hanson Canada tries its best to make the international students stay in the new country as comfortable as possible. Kaur notes that "right from helping them with accommodations, ensuring transportation to campus, and preparing them from day one professionally to providing them with world-class facilities, the
experience they will have from our institution is assured by us to be fruitful and memorable." At Hanson, students from all over the world take admission annually and the number of international students is only growing with each passing year. The students are facilitated in the orientation sessions held in the campus where the institution covers topics such as school procedures, rent, laws, nutrition and so on. Special arrangements are made to recognize the cultural diversity within our students, such as our Indian students, through cultural events such as celebrating Holi on campus. "We have even partnered up with local restaurants to ensure our students get to eat the food they want, at a price they deserve," adds Kaur.

The multicultural environment on campus helps students learn values such as empathy, tolerance, and teamwork. In no time, the campus becomes a second home for international students with the dedicated support of all the staff members of the institution. "As well," shares Kaur, "We actively offer our students annual scholarships based on their GPA and school activity participation."

Indeed, there are many Indian students studying at Hanson with most preferring to pursue a General Business Diploma, Organization Management Post-Graduate Certificate, IT Business Analysis Post-Graduate Certificate and so on in the institution. "We never make our international students feel that they belong from a foreign country. The hospitality we render them erases all kind of cultural shock and differences," concludes Kaur.
