Developing Your Career in Canada
Transferring your skills and qualifications to a new country can be challenging as the registration and assessment of your previous qualification can be a slow process.
Even then you may be required to complete further education to meet Canadian standards. Rather than letting this hold you back, use it as an opportunity to not only establish your career, but to advance it.
In Canada there are a variety of educational programs designed to connect students with industry and develop both their technical and interpersonal skills. These institutions are not limited to local colleges, but include some of the world’s most prestigious universities, such as the University of British Columbia.
The programs range from short courses, through to Master degree qualification. Before deciding on a program, make sure you consider:
- What type of qualification should you consider (Certificate, Degree, Master’s Degree, PHD).
- Price. Some certificate qualifications can cost the same or more than a Master’s Degree. Decide what option is best for you.
- Institution. Make sure you choose to study at an accredited school, college or university.
- Structure. Is the course offered part-time, full time or online. Have a clear vision about your requirements.
