How is Think Tank approaching the COVID-19 situation?
All campus classes are currently being delivered online by our instructors and streamed using video conferencing. Think Tank Training Centre has excelled with online learning experience and can assure you all quality is maintained. Due to the current situation with COVID-19 any future start dates are on a current hold. As soon as the situation with COVID-19 passes, classes on campus will return to normal schedules, we are hopeful for the June term start..
Students that consider in-person Mentorship may still apply, but due to the unforeseeable situation, we recommend taking the online Mentorship for the meantime. If you are a student enrolled in an upcoming term, or have any questions please contact the school for information at firstname.lastname@example.org
What about my study permit?
If your in-class courses are being moved to an online-only format because of COVID-19, your eligibility for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program won’t be affected. This includes students who have a study permit or who have been approved for a study permit for a program starting in May or June but who are unable to travel to Canada at this time due to travel restrictions. International students in this situation may begin their classes while outside Canada and may complete up to 50% of their program while outside Canada if they cannot travel to Canada sooner.
Will there be any academic concessions for students who are supposed to travel to COVID-19 affected areas as part of their studies and whose programs abroad are cancelled?
Think Tank will work with students on a case-by-case basis to determine how best to support them.
