After a fantastic student recruitment trip to Guatemala, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru, in conjunction with OCAD University and NSCAD University, it’s time to pack up my bags and head back to Vancouver. Many thanks to the counselors who worked with us to arrange for visits to each respective school, and also to the students and parents who took the time to meet with us while we were in town.
We look forward to our next visit, and I hope to see you on the Emily Carr University of Art + Design campus in the very near future!
The recruitment department from Emily Carr University of Art + Design is leaving Vancouver on Saturday, March 9, 2013 for Guatemala City to kick off a 2-week recruitment tour of Latin America in conjunction with OCAD University and NSCAD University. This consortia of Canadian specialized art, design and media Universities will be visiting a full roster of schools in Guatemala City, Quito, Bogota and Lima, and are also open to setting up individual appointments during their time in Guatemala, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.
During these school visits, the team will deliver informative presentations related to applying to art, design and media Universities and studying in Canada. The consortia will also be conducting formal portfolio reviews during this time. If you are interested in a portfolio review, please bring your full portfolio with you, along with your official school transcripts in a sealed envelope, if you have not yet submitted them to the University (transcripts that are not in English will need to be officially translated).

The CIS CHEC tour 2012, which consists of 17 Canadian University representatives, has just wrapped up an amazing visit to Lima, Peru. Preparations are in the works for a (very) early morning departure tomorrow to visit our friends in Colombia, and then on to Ecuador. A very special thank you to all of our host schools in Peru. It was great to visit with you!
