It's a pretty fair assumption to say that, in 2020, most people have some kind of travel-related goals. Whether it's to explore Europe, discover Southeast Asia, or embark on some other international adventure, suffice it to say that travel is on most people's minds.
There's no doubt that exploring the world is a great idea, and if you're still a student, there's a way to combine your studies with your wanderlust: studying abroad. It's actually super easy, whether you're looking to study in another country, down to take a gap year and explore beyond your front door, interested in learning a language abroad, or straight-up wanting to work overseas.
And if you're a little confused as to how to begin your brand-new life adventure? Well, no worries! One Canadian event has totally got your back — and it just so happens to be making its way to Montreal this February.
The Study and Go Abroad Fair is FREE to attend and is basically your biggest, best resource for everything and anything you need to know about studying or travelling abroad!
Happening on Saturday, February 29, 2020, at Palais Des Congrès Room 511 (5th floor) from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m (seminars starting at noon), Montreal's Study and Go Abroad Fair is exactly where you want to be if you've ever dreamed of going abroad. Arrive early at noon for the featured seminar on scholarships!
There'll be top universities, graduate schools, and professional schools from around the world at the expo, as well as student-travel organizations showcasing work abroad, internships, language travel, and more. Meaning you can get all of your questions answered in one spot, right here in the city. Plus, registering for the event and showing up enters you in a draw to win a free Air Canada flight to anywhere in the world!
A few examples of the types of schools that'll be featured at the Study and Go Abroad Fair? Australia's Bond University, Edinburgh Napier University from the UK, and Italy's Humanitas University — just to name some!
Although schools from all over the world will be at this expo, it's not just for students. People looking to learn a language abroad can meet with EF, which has campuses all over the world. If you're looking to work abroad, SWAP (the working-holiday experts) will be there, as well as International Experience Canada (which can help inform you on how to get visas to work in over 30 other countries!). And, pro tip? Working overseas looks AMAZING on a resume!
Plus, the Montreal fair is going to feature seminars from noon to 4 p.m. There'll be seminars like Top Tips for Studying Nursing and Other Professional Health Degrees in the UK and Connecting Youth to a World of Opportunities, among others!
Even though this super all-encompassing event is totally free to attend, it's worth it to pre-register just so you know that you'll definitely get to see and do everything that interests you. Honestly, if you want to pursue your dreams of studying and travelling abroad, this is the perfect place to get all the information you could possibly need!
