Peregrini de Canada discentes.


Explanation:
Peregrini de Canada discentes.

Several words can mean "foreigners", but PEREGRINI specifically implies outsiders who _travel_ to a place, but most of the other terms (ALIENIGENAE, EXTERNI, EXTRANEI, etc.) do not include this extra connotation.

The verb DISCO, DISCERE, means "learn". The form DISCENTES means "learning". You wouldn't want the verb STUDEO, STUDERE, because it means "be eager for, to be enthusiastic about," and only once in a while does it merely mean "study, learn".
