Students applaud possibilities created by

Halifax, N.S. – Students are excited today because the government has launched This portal will change the way students, both current and prospective, access post-secondary education in this province.

“This website adds a key dimension to both the recruitment and retention efforts of our universities,” said Fallis Thompson, Chair of StudentsNS. “To bring such a platform online increases accessibility for many students looking to come to Nova Scotia to study. It will allow prospective students to gain a wealth of information about the amazing, quality universities and colleges we have in Nova Scotia.”

This new website, launched today, includes a tab specifically dedicated to students looking to transfer institutions within Nova Scotia. The search engine allows students to compare what credit they will receive if they transfer institutions. StudentsNS has advocated for a long time for easier credit transfer processes. This increases the ability for students to plan for the future and design an education that is personal.

“This government has indicated that they are willing to be a part of the recruitment and retention efforts in Nova Scotia,” said Nick Head-Petersen, Executive Director of StudentsNS. “It is the hope of StudentsNS that this government continues to work with students and the universities to simplify the credit transfer process within the province.”
