The York Institute in Bangkok recently presented an LSI Scholarship to Princess Sirindhorn. The Thai princess is the daughter of the late and much loved King Bhumibol. The scholarship consists of an intensive 8 week course at LSI Canada with free half board accommodation. The princess received the scholarship during a formal ceremony. Whilst the Princess herself will not be taking up the award she will be choosing a member of her own staff to attend.

LSI Scholarship Awards and the York Institute

The York Institute is one of the twelve companies which set up the Thai International Education Consultants Association (TIECA). Since the 1980s  the association has set up exchange programmes between Thailand and the US and Canada. Many Thai students have benefited from these exchange programmes. More recently the York Institute have been working to attract Thai students to Northumbria University and Birmingham University in the UK.  Over  the last few years,  TIECA has approached LSI to offer scholarships. We have been more than happy to help!

New University Pathway for LSI Vancouver

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

LSI Vancouver have just signed a university pathway agreement with the prestigious Acsenda School of Management. This local business college offers degree programmes in business management.  LSI students will now be accepted onto the college’s undergraduate courses once they have attained a C grade or higher on the LSI Cambridge CAE course .

Business Courses at Acsenda

A BA in Business Administration takes 4 years to complete. However students with credits from degree programmes at  recognised universities worldwide can transfer these to Acsenda. In this case, degrees courses at the college can take up to 2 and half years to complete. While studying at Acsenda,  international students can work up to 20 hours a week. After finishing their programme they can apply for a post graduate work permit, enabling them to work in Canada for as long as they had studied on their degree course.

We feel that this new pathway agreement presents an exciting opportunity for both current and future LSI students.  Our students can continue their studies whilst acquiring highly marketable skills in business management.

New Multiple-Entry Visas available for Canada

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Every year more than 35 million people travel to Canada. Recent changes in the visa regulations have now made it easier for travellers who require visas to apply for multiple-entry visas ( list of countries which require a visa ). For those travellers who have their applications accepted, the new multiple-entry visas will allow the holders to come and go from Canada for six months at a time up to a period of 10 years. LSI Toronto and LSI Vancouver have welcomed these changes as it will make it easier for some of their students who wish to break their studies with periods of travel outside Canada.

The reasons for the change are explained by Chris Alexander, Canada’s minister for Citizenship and Immigration.“As part of our plan to grow the Canadian economy and create jobs, our government is committed to attracting more visitors and business people to our country. By making the multiple-entry visa the standard visitor visa, we are evolving to meet the needs of international travellers who are looking for flexible, fast and convenient options to come to Canada. ”
