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.

Where the Market Is

Canada Study MarketThe UK has always been an ideal destination for studying abroad.  But with the UK tightening their post-graduate work programs, many international students look to other countries as the ideal place to study.

This tightening of immigration and work laws in the UK affects all international students, regardless of origin.  Six thousand Canadian students are also fearful that they will have to look elsewhere to work and live.

Canada’s post-graduate program is still attractive and international students who are studying  in Canada are permitted to work up to 20 hours per week while in school.  This is a great help to those who need to supplement their income with employment while studying in Canada.

Post-secondary graduates will want to take a look at a province’s Provincial Nominee program and the Canadian Experience program which also includes the Express Entry process.  In a province like Alberta, if you are technically skilled or an engineer, there is probably a job waiting for you.  Alberta has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country so studying at the University of Alberta can give you an edge over other students in other provinces.

Changing a course in life always has its struggles so you may have to really hunt for a job, or struggle a bit until that happens and you come under the government’s post-graduate program.  But overall, Canada offers one of the best after-graduate work programs for international students to become part of the Canadian economy and society.  In fact, Canada encourages international students to stay if they meet the criteria.

Studying in Canada

Studying in Canada is a new venture for Alberta Rose Education Centre and we are glad we did it.  As Canadian education consultants we have much to offer you because we still consider Canada our home country.  Canada has a lot to offer international students who want to study abroad.  Not only does Canada have some of the top ranking universities in the world, but it also provides great incentives for the qualified international student by way of a diversity of programs and even upgrading programs for the international student who does not meet Canadian admission requirement standards.

As a Canadian, I am more familiar than most international student recruiters with the Canadian education scene and with my country, geographically, culturally, every which way of speaking.  I worked at a major Canadian university for over 25 years and in the course of my duties helped many international students from all over the world, Pakistani students included.

Education in Canada covers a broad area as we have many colleges and universities that offer a diversity of programs.  All provinces have excellent institutions and some of these provinces even have work incentives that the international student can take advantage of.

Therefore watch for upcoming articles that will bring Canada and its study programs to you.  I will share with you our better colleges and universities, our study programs for the international student and work and employment programs which you can take advantage of while you are a student and once you graduate.
