Brandon University to Hold Information Sessions in Ste. Rose and Dauphin

A representative from Brandon University will be at the Ste. Rose School tonight during parent teacher interviews, to provide information to parents and students about the university.

BU will be offering courses taught out of Assiniboine Community College's Parkland Campus in the fall.

Dauphin Coordinator for BU Barry Nadolny says there is also an option for high school students, who are interested in earning University credits before they graduate.

"We will also be talking about the dual-credit option that students can have. Students who are currently in grade eleven, going into grade twelve next year, have an opportunity to take a course. There is no tuition for that, you can take your first university course for free, if you're still in high school."


Nadolny will also be at the DRCSS on March 23rd, for an information session as well.
