Remember being asked the question; ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’
It seemed so simple, then. You choose a path, and it defines the rest of your life. Little did we know that it’s possible (and completely normal) to finish post-secondary education and still have no idea what you want to do next.
More often than not, when students go straight to college from high school, their undergraduate programs are the base from which they streamline their career. That’s why studying for a graduate qualification is an invaluable experience. It allows you to focus on a particular area of study.
But knowing where to start when it comes to choosing a Masters or PhD program can be the toughest part. Online research can only get you so far. That’s why face-to-face interactions are incredibly valuable. And now you can meet reps from the world’s top universities in Montreal, this month.
The QS World Grad School Tour is taking over the Centre Mont-Royal on Thursday, January 25 and you’re going to want to be there. To help you see why, here’s six reasons this event is not to be missed.
It’s free to attend
Attending this one-day graduate event means you’ll get face time with the admissions reps from the top local and international Masters programs. To make it better, you can do it for free. To save your space, simply register via the QS World Grad School Tour Montreal. Make sure to arrive to the event early because you’ll receive a free copy of the QS World Grad School Guide and get a professional LinkedIn profile photo if you’re one of the first 100 people through the door.
Apply for scholarships
Sometimes, your desire to go to school can be eclipsed by the financial barriers in your life. Don’t sweat; you could be eligible for a scholarship. By clearing your calendar for January 25 and attending this QS event, you can get admissions tips and access a pool of scholarships worth $7 million.

Opportunity to combine study with travel
Maybe you’re torn between deciding whether you want to stay in Canada to study or go traveling abroad. The thing is, you can actually combine both. And attending the QS World Grad School Tour is an excellent way to find out more about studying abroad and the countries you could complete your Masters or PhD program in.
You’ll have a wealth of resources available to you at this event as it brings all aspects of postgraduate degree research and information under one roof. You can speak to industry professionals, get resume advice and interview tips at the CV clinic, and find out research on postgraduate ROI to the best student cities, as well as the QS LEAP platform (a peer-to- peer online test prep forum for the GMAT, GRE, LSAT and SAT).
There are many others who are in the same position as you when it comes to choosing their career direction and next stage in education. The QS World Grad School Tour provides an environment where you can easily grow your network and connect with like-minded candidates.
