BC’s new political party, the BC Citizens First Party, today announced that it will require all BC universities and post-secondary providers of undergraduate degrees to give priority enrolment to BC citizens ahead of overseas students. This will be achieved by requiring tertiary educational institutions to set an acceptable lowest acceptable standard mark for entry into each undergraduate course, and then requiring all Canadian citizens who meet that mark to be enrolled first in the course (subject to full availability).
The risks associated with any other system of entry is that all students are lined up according to their entry score and local BC students can end up being excluded even though they may have reached the acceptable minimum entry score, due to excess total demand exceeding supply. “If demand exceeds supply, then the overseas students should be excluded and not the local BC students”, said Phillip Ryan, Leader of the BC Citizens First Party.
“The problem is that under any other rules, tertiary institutions will always very tempted to take the overseas students into their undergraduate degrees ahead of our local BC students because overseas students can be charged 10 times the fees of local BC students”. Such a selection framework does nothing to create job opportunities for local BC students.
In addition to giving classroom priority to BC students, all undergraduate educational providers will be required to give on-campus student accommodation priority to BC students who would normally have to travel more than 1 hour to study on campus. “Our local students must be accommodated on-campus ahead of any overseas students” said Mr. Ryan.
As well as giving priority to local BC students, the BC Citizens First Party Education policy involves:
The Leader of BC Citizens First Party, Mr. Phillip Ryan, said “Our party’s Education policies aim to protect students from imminent severe earthquakes, dangerous ongoing exposure to electromagnetic radiation, run down school buildings, and from being overrun by overseas students in our own universities”.
He continued ”We aim to provide BC students with security from cyber-bullying, child luring and illicit drug risks, as well as a new golden pathway to a guaranteed graduate job in BC without incurring a massive student debt”.
Mr. Ryan said the party will continue to announce a range of public policies over the coming weeks whereby BC Citizens will again be given priority access across a wide range of government policies.
