Combine Beautiful Scenery with Studying in Canada

One of the most beautifully scenic places in Canada is Barrie, Ontario which is just a one hour drive from Toronto.  Barrie has been called a bedroom community of greater Toronto.  The city is not as busy or crowded so a person can have a quieter lifestyle.

Barrie, located on the shores of one of the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario, boasts lakeshore fronts, boating excursions and hotel and tourist attractions.  Now what if you could study in Canada in such a beautiful place and also find a part-time job to supplement your income to cover your education costs?

Georgian College, a polytechnic institute with a good reputation offers some degree programs and many technical and business diplomas that will help you get a job in Canada.  For example their power engineering technology or one of their marine engineering technology programs are must consider options when you are looking at programs to study in Canada.

The Power Engineering and Marine Engineering programs are held at their Owen Sound campus which also is on the lakefront and sports a large marina.

There are good job opportunities if you study marine or power engineering programs as these specialised engineers will continue to be in demand.  Canada has lots of water as we have many lakes and Canada is surrounded by three oceans, the Pacific on the West Coast, the Atlantic on the East Coast and the Arctic to the north.  These specialisations are also needed worldwide.

There are jobs to be had, which also includes the co-op component of their technical diploma certifications and part-time work is available in the retail and hospitality/resort industry.

With so many things to do in Barrie, either indoors or outside, you do not want to miss seeing this beautiful place and maybe even staying there while you study at Georgian College.

Take a look at the links provided in this article and then contact Alberta Rose Education Centre to speak to the college’s representative in Pakistan.

International Student Services at Canadian Institutes

ISS Studying In CanadaAll universities and colleges in Canada have an international centre or office where you can go for inquiries and concerns about being an international student in Canada.  In fact, whether you have any questions or not, it is always a good idea to go visit the office and make your acquaintance.   While studying in Canada it is always nice to go to a warm, welcoming environment where you will be met with a smile.

Also, the International Centres have many programs that can help you get adjusted to Canadian life and also they have some just fun events.  Everyone needs to play; you can’t always be working while studying in Canada.

The International Centre at the University of Alberta has two main events that every incoming international student will want to participate in; one is especially geared to undergraduate students and the other one is for everyone.

U of A +:  This program runs the last 2 weeks of August and gives international undergraduate students an orientation on what to expect from their professors and the teaching methods used at the University of Alberta.  The university is well aware that international students come from different learning methods, such as the rote-learning system found in Pakistan or India.

Transitions:  This is a 3 day event at the end of August and is an orientation to Edmonton and the University.  It is a fun-filled event and is open to both graduate and undergraduate, new students or returning students.  All are welcome.

It is not that other universities and colleges don’t have programs for international centres they do.  For example, Georgian College has their own orientation program.

So, when you are considering a good college or university where you can study in Canada, you will also want to look at their International Services to see what they offer international students.  Studying in Canada is a holistic experience not just left to studying and exams.
