Top-ranking universities, graduate schools and professional schools from around the world will be at the Study and Go Abroad Fair on Saturday, October 5, at the Shaw Centre to meet with students who are looking for studies abroad. The event also welcomes parents, educators and young professionals looking to retrain. Admission is free.
In today’s economy, it is more important than ever to “stand out from the crowd”. Time spent studying abroad looks great on a resume and can give a recent graduate that competitive edge when applying for their dream job. Companies worldwide operate in a global environment, and it makes sense that they prefer to hire employees who have had international experience and, even better, knowledge of a second language.
Exhibiting universities at the event are from the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Spain and many other countries, some of them ranking in the Top 100 universities worldwide. Visitors to the fair can learn about undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, certificate and diploma programs, as well as admission requirements, scholarship options and program choices.
The Study and Go Abroad Fair also features a Travel Zone for information on volunteering, work abroad and language travel programs.
Free seminars take place throughout the day, starting with the Feature Seminar at 12 noon. Details of the seminar topics are below:
12pm Scholarship Tips for Financing Studies in the United States
1pm Scotland is Now
2pm How to Succeed in Your Application to UK Medical School
3pm Clinical Sciences: Integrating Science and Health to Benefit Tomorrow’s Global Society
