Online and Blended Learning for International Students

Flexible Delivery for international students

Flexible Delivery at CUE

CUE is integrating flexible instruction into its teaching and learning practices, with a special focus on blended delivery. Blended delivery refers to a course for which official instructional hours are delivered both in-person in classrooms, and at a distance using technology.

Blended Delivery and International Students

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has regulations on how much study international students can complete online. Blended delivery courses may have a large online component; in some cases, most of the course may be delivered online.  As such, international students should regard blended delivery courses with the same discretion as online courses and should be mindful of how many blended delivery courses they enroll in.

We want to reassure you that we have carefully considered the needs of international students while exploring possibilities for blended course delivery at CUE. As such, we will not be implementing blended course delivery for courses that have a high number of international student enrollments. Nor will we be altering the delivery mode of such a high number of courses that face-to-face alternatives will not be available.

We are advising that international students follow these two rules when considering enrolling in any blended learning courses:

  1. Ensure that you are enrolled in more face-to-face courses than blended delivery courses every semester.
  2. Ensure that you will study less than 50% of your program in blended courses (meaning ensure that more than 50% of your program is completed in face-to-face courses).
