According to a survey carried out by the Harvard Business Review, “people who have international experience or identify with more than one nationality are better problem solvers and display more creativity … and are more likely to create new businesses and products and to be promoted”.
A great reinforcement from a highly respected source – so, in a nutshell ‘if you want to get on in life, at least consider studying abroad or taking part in some meaningful travel programs’. If you have dreams that include both travel and study, mark your calendar for Tuesday, October 6th, and visit the Study and Go Abroad Fair, Canada’s largest international university and student travel expo, at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The thought of putting your life in Vancouver on hold to take a semester, year or even three years ‘out’ can be a little overwhelming, but meeting face-to-face with university representatives and student travel organizers can take away the stress and help you make the right decision regarding your study or travel program, and ultimately your future. Perhaps you’re considering a gap year before or after university, or maybe you want to volunteer in South America? Can’t get into med school here in Canada? Why not study medicine in the Caribbean, which is the #1 choice for Canadians to study medicine outside of Canada? Law in the UK is particularly popular at the moment – want to know more? Study Hospitality Management in Switzerland (where else?).
The Study and Go Abroad Fairs will feature top universities from around the world, including Australia, USA, UK, Switzerland, Japan, Spain, Ireland, Netherlands and the Caribbean. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about scholarships, admission requirements, opportunities to volunteer, intern and learn a language. Pre-register online or on the day and you’ll be entered into our Grand Prize Draw for your chance to win a free flight anywhere in the world on Air Canada, or a volunteer trip to Guatemala or Peru.
