A Bachelor of Arts degree used to hold a lot of weight when it came to job options a decade or two ago. But now when MBA’s are even becoming more common, what can you do with that generic B.A.? Heading overseas to someplace like the U.K. for postgraduate work just might be the answer. Post-secondary education of any type should never be looked upon as a waste of time, but there’s no doubt it will help your career options if you build on the knowledge and skills which you have already started to accumulate.
With an undergraduate degree, a 2 Year Accelerated Law Program is one of your options, and is a choice which is very popular with many Canadian students. In fact at some U.K. Law Schools, Canadians comprise as much as a third of the student body. Even better is the fact that these qualifications are readily transferable to working back home in Canada. Many U.K. universities offer an extensive support network for students from Canada, such as Canadian Law Societies which provide assistance from the beginning of classes right through to returning home to begin he job search.
Postgraduate programs overseas have an endless variety of other options for students holding a general B.A. offering everything from Business to Fashion Management and programs in Human Rights and International Politics. Barclay Educational is proud to partner with more than 25 top universities in the UK, France and Germany. London, Edinburgh, Dublin, Paris and Berlin are just a few of the wonderful cities that you could find yourself studying in. It’s also worth noting that most Master’s programs overseas are JUST ONE YEAR! This means that even though the cost of studying overseas might seem prohibitive, the fact that students are only paying for one year of post-graduate studies rather than two years, means the cost often ends up being almost the same. More good news; all of our universities are recognized as being eligible for student loan programs such as OSAP.
