BrandonU, Department of National Defence sign MOU

November 11, 2020
Brandon University and the Department of National Defence have signed a MOU that allows members of the Canadian Forces to access postsecondary education even while deployed overseas. The agreement streamlines the process of awarding transfer credits for specific military training, as well as providing greater course and exam flexibility for students who are completing classes while deployed. The agreement further lays the groundwork for future collaboration on defence- or security-related programs. “This MOU is an acknowledgement that it is an important bit of business for BU, and an indication to the military that we take this initiative seriously,” said Gary McNeely, Coordinator of Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition at BrandonU. “Their knowledge is worthy of serious consideration, their skills are real and vital, and appropriate to recognize — especially this close to Remembrance Day.” BrandonU (MB)
