Postgraduate programs in places like the UK are much more varied and unique than many of the options available here in Canada. Our Canadian agency, Barclay Educational Services is still accepting applications for the many openings which are still available at a number of overseas institutions for a Sept 2019 start! There are countless possibilities in every Faculty from Arts and Humanities to Science and Medicine. In addition, because overseas universities tend to focus more on core content rather than spending time on electives, most times it is possible for students to complete a postgraduate degree to earn an MA or MSc degree in just one year. This means rather than spending another year sitting in class, overseas students are able to have completed their degree and most likely have started working during the second year. That makes the option of attending classes overseas very cost effective since one year of living and studying in Europe is usually no more expensive than the cost of two years of postgraduate study in Canada.
But there are other advantages as well. Travel is one of them. Once students are in the UK for example, many spend weekends and holidays traveling with classmates to Spain, Italy, France and other beautiful countries. Travel is inexpensive since trains and commuter flights are widely available at a reasonable cost. Also, there is the added experience of gaining an international education which is highly valued in this increasingly global workplace and economy.
Many of the alumni who return from overseas studies report that they were told by employers the reason they were hired was due to their international studies. Employers are confident that these students can work with people and cultures all over the world. In addition, employers know that these students have the ability to navigate life on their own and make sound decisions. All of this adds up to strongly distinguish candidates who are educated internationally from others who may be similarly competing for positions. Watch the video below of one of our students who recently returned from studying in the UK.
Would you like to join the next group of students embarking on an exciting year of overseas postgraduate studies in the fall of 2019? We at Barclay Educational work with more than 25 partner schools who have excellent reputations in the academic world. Academic qualifications and skills are all highly transferable to working back home in Canada. Contact us for more information on schools and programs. As a recognized Canadian agent of these universities, our help is free to students. The universities pay our fee. For info: email JSB@barclayedu.com for details.

New work from researchers including a PHd student from the University of Strathclyde have revealed microplastics in a remote region of the Pyrenees mountain range.
The research paper: ‘Atmospheric transport and deposition of microplastics in a remote mountain catchment’ published in the Nature Geoscience research journal, reveals that samples from two separate monitoring devices were analysed to identify whether the tiny plastic pieces, invisible to the naked eye and less than five millimetres long, were present in the largely inaccessible mountain area.
Despite the remote location, researchers recorded average daily counts of 365 deposits per square metre of the pervasive material.
It isn’t yet known the extent of the distance that microplastics can travel, but the research also reveals that the analysis of air trajectory shows fragments are travelling through the atmosphere over distances of at least almost 60 miles.
Astounding and worrying
Joint lead researcher Steve Allen, a researcher at EcoLab, Toulouse and a PhD student from the University of Strathclyde, said: “It’s astounding and worrying that so many particles were found in the Pyrenees field site.
“What we can unequivocally prove is that it’s being transported there by the wind.
“It opens up the possibility that it’s not only in the cities are you breathing this in, but it can travel quite some distance from the sources.
“Plastic litter is an increasing global issue and one of the key environmental challenges we face on global scale.”
Co-author Dr Deonie Allen of EcoLab added: “The drivers in plastic degradation are fairly well known, but the transport drivers and mechanisms – especially atmospheric transport – for microplastic appears to be complex and an area of research that now needs to be unravelled.”
The team, a collaboration between the University of Strathclyde and the French National Research Centre at the University of Toulouse, collected samples from the field site in south west France from an ‘uncontaminated’ area just over four miles away from the nearest village and around 75 miles from the nearest city of Toulouse.
The area is considered to be pristine, untouched wilderness due to a lack of development, its inaccessibility and distance from major cities and industrial centres.
Dr Gael Le Roux from EcoLab said: “This mountainous area has been the subject of numerous interdisciplinary studies in ecology and environment over the past decade but we would still never have anticipated that this latest study would reveal such high levels of microplastics deposits.”
Local rain, wind speed and snow fall was also recorded during the winter period of 2017 to 2018.
Steve Allen added: “The meteorological station there has two existing deposition collectors, which supplied us with the samples. We measured it over a five-month period during the winter which was significant as the Pyrenees are generally covered in snow and the ground is damp.

Can the awareness of your internal body signals such as heartbeat or breathing affect the way you see yourself?
New research by Anglia Ruskin University which was recently published in the journal Body Image suggests that there could be a connection. Making people more aware of their own internal body signals, such as heartbeat or breathing rate, could promote positive body image, according to new research published in the journal Body Image.
Researchers from Anglia Ruskin University studies a group of 646 adults and found that there were statistically significant relationships between people’s awareness of internal signals given out by the body – and body image.
One difference in this work as opposed to previous studies on the subject have tended to recruit small groups of young women. However, this study included both men and women, from the ages of 18 to 76.
The study found that people who can pay attention to internal body signals tended to report higher levels of positive body image.
Lead author Jenny Todd said:
“Our research finds associations between the awareness of internal body signals and measures of body image. This could have implications for promoting positive body image, for example modifying interoceptive awareness through mindfulness-based practices.
