University tours in British Columbia are getting cancelled due to COVID-19. Many are now turning to virtual tours to help students choose a school for next year.
Students are understandably concerned that many university tours in British Columbia aren’t happening as planned. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to learn about these schools.
Choosing the right university is a big decision and campus tours are a great tool to help with it. That’s why many schools are sending students to virtual university tours to help them explore the campuses and get their questions answered. We’re putting together a massive list (and updating it) to keep track of all the virtual university tours in British Columbia.
