Are you interested in studying overseas for Law, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Teaching, Business, Art, Music, or one of the many other programs which are extremely popular with Canadian students? Getting an International Education makes sense for many reasons. First, the programs are often less time than required here in Canada (for example Master’s programs are one year not two) so the overall cost ends up being much the same, plus you are out of school and getting work experience even earlier. In addition, many overseas university programs are eligible for student loan programs such as OSAP which means there is often financial assistance available, similar to here at home. And finally, graduates with an International education are valuable to employers since they know you can navigate the world on your own and work alongside people from all over the globe.
Barclay Educational Services has more than 25 partner universities located in the UK, France and Germany and more than a decade of experience helping students with overseas placement. Here are a few of the most asked questions that we encounter:
1. Do I need a Visa to study overseas?
Yes. You will likely need a Visa to study. The Visa application for the UK and France will be completed in Canada with our assistance which is provided at NO CHARGE to students. (The schools pay our fee.) The Visa for Germany and Ireland will be completed for the first 90 days upon arrival with the help of the International Office at your university.
2. Can I work while I study?
For the most part, students will be allowed to work a maximum of 20 hours per week and full-time hours during the holidays.
3. Are all the courses taught in English?
Yes! All courses arranged with us are taught in English, even programs in France and Germany.
4. Do I need to come to your office?
No! We assist students throughout Canada by email or phone. The only appointment you must attend in person is the one for your Student Visa which can be done at a variety of local centers in your province.
