Students studying abroad to attend online classes for now, as flights cancelled

Ludhiana: As all flights to Canada have been cancelled until May 21, after the restrictions announced by the Regulatory Authority of Canada amid an alarming spike in Covid-19 cases, students wishing to study abroad are perplexed.

Chehak Bansal, a student of Bachelors in Business administration from Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada who had planned to go in May said, “I enrolled myself last year in September, but due to lockdown, it was deferred to January, even my visa formalities got delayed, as the Canadian embassy was slow in processing and I received my visa in March. I planned to travel in May, due to the cancellation of flights, I have rescheduled my flight in June.”

A resident of Model Town, Chehak said, “My first semester began in January. The second semester will be starting next week with online classes.”

Rishav, a student of public relationship course at Canadore College Scarborough, Ontario, said, “I was about to book my flight but after this news, I will be attending my classes online. My classes will begin on May 6. Now, I will go in June. I was excited to go and attend classes from there, but now with the rising of cases, we have to wait.”
