Canada

Are you interested in pursuing your studies abroad?  Would you like to explore a different culture, meet new people, and begin living independently while in college?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to attend the Study in Canada Fair 2016.

The event is organized by the Embassy of Canada and aims to provide all relevant information on applying at universities in Canada, acquiring a scholarship, and choosing among a multitude of courses and specializations.   More than 25 institutions in Canada will be participating in the event so aspirants can get first-hand information from professors and even students and graduates of the different schools.

I did a quick research on top reasons why people often choose Canada to pursue their studies. Sharing it here now:

  1. Qualifications Valued Around the World.  Universities in Canada observe high academic standards and training; this ensures that students get high-quality education that is recognized globally.
  2. Affordable Education.  The cost of living and tuition fees for international students are generally lower in Canada than in other countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. It is for this reason that students choose to pursue their studies in this country.
  3. Multicultural Society.  Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago moved to Canada when she was only 15 years old.  She was plucked out of Masbate and was the typical example of a probinsyana.  Yet she did not experience any difficulty in adjusting to her new environment. Canada’s multi-cultural society allows migrants to adapt to their new living conditions without the pressure of putting on an accent, changing your hair color, or letting go of your Filipino values.  University advisers will even help you find the right ethnic clubs and associations you can join while studying.
  4. Healthy and Safe Communities.  Consistently ranked by the United Nations as one of the best places in the world to live, Canada is probably the best place for students seeking to live independently.
  5. World-class Language Education.  Considered as a world leader in language training, students are trained to be articulate and comfortable when speaking not just one, but two languages – English and French.
  6. Innovative and Abundant Research Opportunities.  In Canada, government and industry support research including telecommunications, medicine, agriculture, computer technology, and environmental science. It is a haven for students pursuing post-secondary education.
  7. Possibility of Immigration.  Some students with Canadian credentials and Canadian work experience may apply for permanent residency without having to leave Canada

The fair will be held next week, January 23, Saturday, in Makati City at the Fairmont Hotel. If you live in Cebu, you can catch them on January 24, Sunday, at the Marriott Hotel Cebu. Both are weekend dates so there’s no reason why you should let this event pass. Plus, it’s free! No fees to pay at all.

The event is open from 10am to 5pm; come armed with your questions on how to apply, how to acquire scholarships, and all other requirements you need to prepare.
