So many people let the opportunity to combine traveling and studying fall through the cracks. And you don’t want to be one of them.
It’s something you’ll want to do while you’re young – when you have no adult responsibilities like a mortgage or children.
Think about it, if you’re looking for the next step in your education (Bachelor’s, Postgraduate, Master’s, or Doctorates), or to take a gap year, why stay in your hometown when you can go abroad? It’s not only an incredibly exciting international opportunity, it’s great for your resume, too!
And there’s a place you can find out all about it – the Study and Go Abroad Fair. It’s taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Sunday, February 25 and you can go along to meet reps from some of the world’s top universities, grad schools, and professional schools.
To help you see why studying abroad is the best choice you could make in 2018, we’ve compiled a list of four reasons to do it – and the way you can make it happen.
You’ll be challenged
Just think about it – moving to a new country and furthering your education in a new school is bound to be somewhat challenging. You could face language barriers in the city and experience some culture shock, but you’ll adapt fast and fall in love with your new home.
You’ll learn a lot
Processes are different from school to school and even more so when it comes to different countries. When you’re thrown in at the deep end of your first year at university, it gives you the chance to learn new skills that you may never have imagined otherwise.
You’ll make so many memories
When you’re in your 30s and 40s do you want to be reminiscing about how you spent most of your 20s in the same city? No, you’ll likely want to be looking back on the adventure-filled trips you enjoyed while studying abroad. That’s what you’ll get when you choose to live and study abroad.
You’ll have so many more career opportunities
‘Flying the nest’ and moving abroad to study could mean even greater things for your career when you graduate. With your new skills that you have learned abroad and international experience, you’ll stand apart from your peers when applying for that dream job back home. In an ever more global workplace, employers are looking for rockstar candidates who have lived/studied abroad.
Studying and traveling abroad at the same time is easy when you have all the right resources. The upcoming Study and Go Abroad Fair can help you get started.
Pre-registration for the event is optional, however, if you pre-register online, you’ll save time when you arrive and get important updates before the fair. Plus, you’ll be entered into a grand prize draw to win a free return flight anywhere in the world on Air Canada.
