Brandon University has extended the deadline for Voluntary Withdrawal from the current Fall 2020 term to Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Members of the Brandon University (BU) chapter of World University Service of Canada (WUSC) are keeping up their efforts to assist refugee students despite the challenges of COVID-19.
The non-profit organization, with chapters across Canada, administers the Student Refugee Program (SRP) each year, helping students to feel safe, welcomed and supported as they pursue their educational dreams in their new home. The most important role WUSC fills is by providing financial assistance to refugee students, enabling them to receive a post-secondary education and pursue permanent residency in Canada.
