Students attending Northlands College will have more classes available to them.

The college and the University of Regina have announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) which will give Northlands the ability to deliver some U of R programming to their students. Northlands students will be able to take classes in person and remotely.

Northlands College President and CEO Karasten Henriksen said the new collaboration will give the college’s students more opportunities and is also empowering for students.

“This collaboration with the University of Regina opens up a world of possibilities for our learners,” he said.

Jeff Keshen, President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Regina said the agreement between the two post secondary institutions will allow Northlands students to take classes from the U of R without having to leave their communities.

“We are happy to partner with Northlands College in such a meaningful way to expand educational opportunities in the north and thereby enhance career prospects for Saskatchewan students,” he said.
