EduGlobal’s PTIB-Approved Programs Tripled and All Academic Programs Increased by 50%

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio, April 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- EpicQuest Education Group International Limited (NASDAQ: EEIQ), (“EpicQuest Education”, “EEIQ” or the “Company”), a provider of higher education for domestic and international students in the US, Canada and the UK, today announced that on March 28, 2024, two new cooperative (“co-op”) diploma programs at EduGlobal College (“EduGlobal”) have been approved by Private Training Institutions Branch (“PTIB”) of British Columbia, which regulates private training institutions. The co-op program entails students alternating between attending academic semesters at EduGlobal with working at paid, full-time jobs, and are scheduled to commence for the Fall semester in September 2024.

Jeff Romonko, Campus Director of EduGlobal College, commented, “With today’s increasing trend of college-age people foregoing college for full-time jobs, we believe that EduGlobal’s new co-op programs are ideal for students who may not ordinarily pursue higher education as it provides them with a great hybrid approach and a high return on investment. Given this dynamic, we are very pleased to have received the approvals from the PTIB since it also gives us the opportunity to dramatically expand the student population that we serve.”

“As tuition costs can deter or delay students from achieving their academic goals, co-op programs can keep students on track to achieve their degrees in a timely fashion. In addition, co-op programs can result in students receiving full-time employment offers at these same firms as soon as students complete their academic programs. We are very pleased to offer the two new co-op programs since it reinforces our value proposition of providing skills-based educations at both EduGlobal and Davis University,” concluded EduGlobal Campus Director Jeff Romonko.

The two co-op programs are for a two-year Business Studies Diploma and a one-year Business Studies Certificate. Both programs require students to alternate semesters between attending academic semesters with placement at paid, full-time jobs. The two new programs adds to the program that EduGlobal had been offering, and both programs are designed with international students in mind, featuring a blend of delivery methods to accommodate different time zones and learning preferences. This format supports EduGlobal College’s strategy to make quality Canadian education accessible to students from around the globe.

EduGlobal’s co-op programs are a cornerstone of our commitment to career readiness, integrating classroom studies with real-world work experience. This approach not only enhances learning but also significantly improves EduGlobal’s graduates' employability and integration into the Canadian business environment. The Company believes that the new co-op programs are in perfect alignment with its core mission of providing practical educational programming to help students secure sustainable, well-paying jobs.
