These fairs offer you an ideal opportunity to explore your options.

In your quest for the dream job, your journey could take you overseas, whether you want to be a physician or a musician.

This week a series of Study and Go Abroad Spring fairs will be rolling out across Canada, with stops in Vancouver, Montréal and Toronto.

These fairs offer you an ideal opportunity to explore your options, if you’re thinking about working or studying overseas. It’s a rare chance to meet face-to-face with people who can answer all your pressing questions.

SOME OF THE STUDY AND GO ABROAD EXHIBITS INCLUDE:

Studying Medicine in the Caribbean:

According to an article from CBC news, 3,500 Canadians are studying medicine overseas, vs. 10,500 Canadians studying medicine in Canada. Two Caribbean medical schools will be part of the fairs, Avalon University and St Martinus, both from the island of Curacao.

Master of Arts in The Beatles, Popular Music and Society:

Earlier this year, Canadian Mary -Lu Zahalan-Kennedy became the first person in the world to graduate with a Masters degree in The Beatles from Liverpool Hope University. Representatives from Liverpool Hope will be on hand to answer your questions about Beatles-ology.

  • Learn to SCUBA dive in the Seychelles

About our business, Study and Go Abroad is the 'go to' site for Canadians looking to study abroad, travel, intern or volunteer. We organize fairs twice a year in various cities in Canada, and I'd recommend getting down to one of them to check out all the exciting options. As for me, I'm a business woman and a travel junkie! I have always had a passion for travel and for experiencing new cultures. Brought up in England, I traveled Europe in my teens and early 20s. I have lived and worked on 3 continents; Europe, Africa and North America. I have traveled extensively worldwide both for work and for fun - and still can't believe how much of the world there is still to see!
