Anglo universities not doing enough for French students: FEUQ
Quebec's University Students' Federation, the FEUQ, said the Anglo universities in Montreal are not doing enough to accommodate students coming from French CEGEPS delayed by the class boycott.
Concordia has registered 265 students that are impacted by the boycott and a spokesperson confirms they have two options.
Students with conditional acceptance to the university are going to be allowed to complete their CEGEP semester, get their degree, and taking some University classes at the same time.
The other option is to delay starting university classes until the winter semester.
Martine Desjardins with the FEUQ said that all other French universities delayed the semester for everyone until October. Something, she suggested, Concordia and McGill should do the same.
"Universities should have delayed those courses, make sure that all the students will go back to school, and do the same schedule that the others are doing," Desjardins said. "Make sure that when they enter university, they will have the same context and parameters than the others."
