After your studies

The final day of classes or the day you defend your thesis marks the start of something new, life as a graduate.

If you wish to work in Canada, you’re welcome to stay and start the process of immigrating to Canada. Working in Canada after your studies may be what you’ve dreamed of all your life.

Or maybe you want to pursue a new level of education, moving from the university where you got a Bachelor’s degree to a college in a different part of Canada, so you can gain skills or training to enter the workforce in a specific field. For example, many students remain in Canada to pursue post-graduate work, such as a master’s degree, PhD or doctoral studies.

When you arrived in Canada to study, the possibilities were endless. They still are!
