International Collaboration Agreements
Tianjin Polytechnic University
Degree: 2+2 OR 3+2 Model
NAIT partnered with the Tianjin Polytechnic University (TPU) to develop an international collaboration agreement that allowed students to spend 3 years at TPU and 2 years at NAIT. Successful graduates received a TPU Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a NAIT Bachelor of Applied Business Administration – Accounting degree. The goal of this collaboration was to provide TPU students with increased knowledge and skills in application, creativity and global competitiveness. This international collaboration agreement also provided a pathway for students with inadequate English language abilities to attend English as a Second Language (ESL) courses concurrently during their first term in Canada to ‘catch-up’ and graduate with their classmates.
Heilongjiang University of Science and Technology
Diploma: 4+0 Model
NAIT has partnered with Heilongjiang University of Science and Technology (HUST) in Harbin, China, where students spend 4 years at HUST to receive a Bachelor of Science degree and a NAIT Computer Systems Technology – Digital Media and IT Diploma. The quality of the program is assured through an annual audit, whereby NAIT curriculum is delivered by 2 NAIT instructors per semester in compressed 8-week terms. Advanced credit is awarded to those classes that meet articulation requirements. This international collaboration agreement has provided a platform for genuine cultural exchange and mutual benefit for over a decade.
