How educational experience in a foreign country can add professional value in a changing job market

The professional learning acquired through an educational or academic experience in a foreign country goes far beyond the hard skills developed in the course itself. It happens because the most valuable learning comes from multiple interactions experienced living in an environment of cultural diversity.

With the technological advancement of the last decades, it is easy to learn hard skills even at home. Anywhere on the planet, it is possible to access through the Internet new content in tutorials, articles or books and learn several topics.

In the face of this reality, a skill set that is getting more relevant in recent years is what we refer...

O aprendizado profissional adquirido em uma experiência educacional ou acadêmica em um país estrangeiro vai muito além das habilidades técnicas desenvolvidas no curso em si, isso porque talvez o aprendizado de maior valor pessoal e profissional vem exatamente das múltiplas interações experimentadas vivendo em um ambiente de diversidade cultural.

Com o avanço tecnológico das últimas décadas, adquirir habilidades técnicas (Hard Skills), tornou-se acessível e disponível no ambiente doméstico. Em qualquer lugar do planeta é possível através da internet acessar conteúdos em tutoriais, artigos ou livros de temas variados e aprender técnicas até muito específicas sem sair de casa, mas o que é curioso é que vivemos um tempo de mudanças revolucionárias no mercado de trabalho e é difícil prever...

Staying in Canada for work after you graduate. Making it easier for international students to become Canadians.

Canada extends the application period for Post-Graduation Work Permits & Creates More Opportunity for International Students.

International students hoping to remain in Canada on a Post-Graduation Work Permit now have 180 days (six months) to apply once they obtain their final marks and notice of graduation and are no longer required to have a valid study permit.

The changes were announced by the Government of Canada on Thursday, February 14 along with other modifications to Canada’s popular Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) program.

study in canada Aug 30, 2019

Why international students are important for Canada?

According to Canadian government statistics, in 2018 alone, international students in Canada spent an estimated $21.6 billion on tuition, accommodation and other expenses in 2018 and thus contributed to Canada’s overall GDP[1], and that’s a sizeable contribution. The international student body supported almost 170,000 jobs for Canada’s middle class in 2016. Such an enormous economic contribution, directly and indirectly, affects the whole country.

As a comparison, educational expenditures by international students have a bigger impact on Canada’s economy than, for example, exports of automotive parts, lumber products or even aircraft.

At the same time, there’s a steady increase of interest by international students towards Canada. Between 2014 and 2018, the number of international students in Canada increased by an amazing 68%. In 2018, a total of 721,205 international students at all levels studied...
