Study and Go Abroad March Fairs attract top-ranking universities from around the globe

VANCOUVER, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - As the trend towards "internationalizing" education in Canada continues, the Study and Go Abroad Fair, recognized as Canada's largest international university and student travel expo, features a myriad of post-secondary studies from Certificate programs to Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees, as well as gap year and other student travel opportunities. The student expo will take place in Montreal on Saturday, March 2nd, in Toronto on March 3rd and in Vancouver on March 5th, and admission is free.

"Studying in a foreign country develops globally competent citizens, who are self-motivated, independent and able to easily adapt to different cultures and new situations. Companies looking to compete internationally are looking for people who can engage globally, and the skills developed while studying abroad can set you apart from your peers when applying for a job," says Anita Kuehnel, Director of the Study and Go Abroad Fairs.

Visitors to the Study and Go Abroad Fairs have an opportunity to meet face to face with universities from around the world to learn about admission requirements, scholarships, program choices and destinations. Universities, many of which rank in the Top 100 worldwide, will be showcasing programs in medicine, law, pharmacy, hotel management, business, technology, science, and culinary and liberal arts, among other fields. In the Travel Pavilion, student travel experts will be giving out information on working, volunteering and taking internships overseas.

The Study and Go Abroad Fair opens at 1pm in Montreal and Toronto and at 3pm in Vancouver, but visitors are encouraged to arrive an hour earlier to hear our guest speakers. Information sessions will feature topics such as undergraduate and postgraduate study opportunities in Australia, the UK, and Switzerland, studying medicine abroad, and working and volunteering in a foreign country.

Exhibitor profiles, scholarship information and seminar schedules for the STUDY AND GO ABROAD FAIR can be found online at www.studyandgoabroad.com, along with details of our Grand Prize Draw.
