The Study and Go Abroad Fair will be coming to the Vancouver Convention Centre at Canada Place on Thursday March 3rd. The event is from 2:00 – 7:00 and admission is free. If you or someone you know is considering studying or volunteering overseas make sure to take advantage of this opportunity. The event’s main focus is on post-secondary education; however, there will be plenty of exhibits for planning your gap year, interning abroad and volunteering abroad.
Study and Go Abroad will be hosting some of the top-ranked university and college recruiters from around the world and within Canada. It is important to prepare for the event in advance. Know which institutions you want to learn more about and come prepared with questions. This is a great opportunity to speak face-to-face with university and organization recruiters. If you already know which institutions you are primarily interested in, you should bring along a copy of your transcripts and resume.
The event is free and features many seminars. One of the speakers this year will be Jean-Marc Hachey, author of The BIG Guide to Living and Working Overseas. He will be discussing how to acquire global career skills. A full list of exhibitors and speakers can be found on the Study and Go Abroad website.
