College students in Timmins are getting an opportunity to study abroad. College Boreal has just signed an agreement with schools in France and Belgium, to allow for exchange programs.

The program in Belgium is technical and scientific, focusing on agriculture, computer science, and chemistry programs. In France the programs focus on community service, like social work, early childhood education, and child and youth work.

President of Boreal, Pierre Riopel, says studying in Europe will enrich student’s post-secondary experience.
