NC welcomes largest Danish student cohort in college history

This fall, Niagara College welcomed 60 students from Roskilde Business College (RBC) in Denmark for a customized business program scheduled to end in December. This is the first time the College has hosted a Danish cohort of this size.

NC’s International Division signed a memorandum of understanding with RBC in April to partner in Roskilde’s Study Abroad – World Class program. As part of the specialized program, RBC students will study cultural understanding, Canadian history and international accounting and trade for ten weeks at the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses.

Since arriving at NC last month, RBC students have been treated to a truly authentic Canadian experience having celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with homestay families and visiting the waterfalls in Niagara Falls. The students also had an opportunity to walk in this year’s Grande Parade representing Niagara College at the Niagara Wine Festival.

Founded in 1869, Roskilde Business College is among the oldest business colleges in Denmark.

Danish students enjoy Thanksgiving dinner at their homestay with the Letourneau family on October 9.
