Oh Canada!

It came as no surprise when I tuned in to Nationwide News Network Immigration Mondays and overheard the calamitous news.

There will be a cap placed on international students applying to schools in British Columbia.  And this ca will be for 2 years.

Mighty distressing.


We have invited teachers and students to log on to the Versan Edison platform to practice online tests before the March 9th exam.  If students are still lazing around, they are losing out on a great resource.

Invite Students to Apply to Cornell University's Precollege Summer Program


Do you know students who might benefit from college-level summer study at Cornell? If so, please tell them about the Cornell University Precollege Studies Program, which offers rigorous online courses taught by top Cornell faculty.

As one of the nation's longest running and most highly regarded precollege academic programs, it gives motivated students the chance to

  • Get a head start on their college journey while earning 3 to 12 credits

  • Build college study skills during engaging Ivy League classes

  • Prep for college applications with one-on-one admissions counseling

  • Enhance their college applications with an impressive Cornell transcript

  • Have fun connecting with diverse students from around the world

Students choose from dozens of three- and six-week online undergraduate Cornell courses in Arts and Architecture, Business and Hotel Management, Health and Humanities, International Relations, Psychology, Science and Technology, Sustainability, Veterinary Medicine, and more! More courses will be added in the coming months.

Courses are offered between June 3 and August 6, 2024. Limited financial aid is available.

The application is open now! We encourage students to apply as soon as possible because most of our courses fill before the deadline.

Please contact us if you have questions. We hope your students can join us online at Cornell this summer!

Dear Sandra, 

Greetings once again from Philadelphia! I am Peter Lundbye, Temple University's Director of International Admissions. You are getting this email because you guided one or more talented students to apply to Temple.

Our Spring Semester is in full swing now, so I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know about some updates that are relevant to students interested in studying with us.

We are continuing to run our series of virtual information sessions run by our team with two this month:

We encourage students to sign up for these events, as they are an invaluable way for students to get informed about the temple experience. You can refer to our virtual events page for a full list of events. We are also happy to customize presentations for you and your students.

Another important news item: we have decided to extend the deadline of our merit-based award, the #WhyUS Scholarship, from February 1st to March 1st. This gives students another month to get their applications together, so please make sure your students are aware of this exciting opportunity.

Thank you for your support and partnership. We look forward to connecting with you and your students in the future!

Peter Lundbye

Director of International Admissions
