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
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.
