Mérida, Yucatán, (December 21, 2021).- A total of 11 students from the Polytechnic Universities of Yucatán (UPY) and Tecnológica Metropolitana (UTM) will carry out, from January to April of next year, part of their educational training at the most prestigious universities in Canada, as a result of the support of the Yucatan Government, in coordination with the Government of that country.

At the “Yucatán Siglo XXI” Convention Center, Vila Dosal held a meeting with students from both state institutions, who will soon travel to Canada, after being winners in the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) call of the Canadian Bureau of International Education, in collaboration with the Government of Yucatán.

The Yucatecan students who were chosen were benefited with a scholarship, which will allow them to carry out an academic stay with expenses paid, from January to April 2022, in 3 Canadian institutions: Lakehead University, located in the city of Thunderbay; Sault College, in Sault Ste. Marie, and St. Lawrance College, in Kingston, all in the province of Ontario.

Regarding this significant opportunity, the student in Data Engineering at UPY, Alejandro Rodríguez Trillo, highlighted the efforts of the Governments of Yucatán and Canada to train outstanding young people, which in the future will allow them to have better job opportunities.

The young man, who will study at St. Lawrance College, in Kingston, Ontario, as part of said exchange, indicated that, unlike other types of calls, “we will be taking regular courses with the students of that university; It is not an exchange of listeners, we will be enrolled, we will take courses and we will be part of the students of that university, so it is a great opportunity to prepare ourselves ”.

In the presence of the rector of the UPY, Víctor Espadas Aldana, and the person in charge of the Office of the Rectory of the UTM, María Estefanía Arjona Ortíz, Vila Dosal pointed out that, in 2019, a significant lag was detected in the English language, therefore that his administration decided to start, in 2020, the State Agenda for English, which this year will be resumed with the International Mobility Program.

On this issue, the Governor announced that, on this day, the call begins so that 110 students from public and private universities in Yucatan can have a 3-week experience abroad, to perfect their English; the intention is that the number of participants with this opportunity increases each year, to benefit many more.

Finally, Vila Dosal congratulated the first 11 young people who will be on behalf of the state abroad, after the pandemic; He wished them a fruitful stay and that they proudly represent Yucatán, and assured that his Government will continue working to generate this type of agreement.
