Event description

Description

Are you an international learner starting a Certificate of Diploma this Winter 2018 intake? Are you interested in qualifying to work off-campus while you complete your studies at Bow Valley College? Or maybe you want to qualify for the post-graduate work permit program? Do you want to make of this experience as an international learner an exciting and gratifying experience?

If you answered "yes!" to any of these questions, then do not miss the International Learner Preparation Day. It is planned for international learners wishing to succeed in their program, work in Canada and enjoy their experience of living in a new country!

Some of the questions that will be discussed are:

  • When and why do I have to extend my study permit?
  • Am I eligible to work? What conditions do I have to meet?
  • My program includes a work experience but I do not have a valid a co-op work permit, would that affect my long term goals?
  • What conditions do I need to meet during my time as a student in order to become eligible for a post-graduate work permit?
  • Where can I get help if I am in a difficult personal or academic situation?
  • Plagiarism and Academic Honesty policies, how different are they applied and enforced in Canada? How does that affect me?
  • Do I need to apply for health care insurance? How? Where?
  • Volunteering in Canada… a win-win relation!
