Students of the 11th grade had a very useful meeting with Ani Vardazaryan, manager of leading Canadian colleges: Fraser International College at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, International College of Manitoba at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Ryerson University International College at Ryerson University in Toronto and Wilfrid Laurier College at Brantford. Future graduates were told about the aspects of entering the educational institutions in Canada.
The students got information about different faculties of these universities - from the faculty of engineering and medicine to art and design.
“I tried to tell the children as much details as possible about the life of students on the campus, paying attention to the advantages and disadvantages of living in a particular city, - says Ani. - I noticed that the universities have everything you need for an interesting life for young people: gyms, many cafes, interesting student events. The disadvantage of all campuses, in my opinion, is that the territory of the universities is so large that it is difficult to navigate and you can easily get lost. But on the other hand, perhaps this will become a "plus" for someone.
Graduates learned that it is possible to start submitting documents to Canadian universities as early as November, since the deadline is the end of December. Particular attention should be paid to documents confirming your level of English proficiency. It could be TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo. And a mandatory requirement is a letter of motivation.
“I learned a lot of useful information for myself,” shares his impressions the 11th grade pupil Viktor Sakania. - I am now deciding on the choice of further studies, and receiving such detailed information is simply priceless to me.
The atmosphere at the meeting was very comfortable, the students asked questions that interested them.
- I really liked the meeting with Ani, I learned a lot about Canada, - the 11th grade student Ksenia Zubreva joins the conversation. - It's great that many students from different countries can study there. Thanks to our school for giving the students the opportunity to meet interesting people.
“The school uses every opportunity to introduce the educational standards in different countries to our children,” says Olga Shevchenko, principal of the International Linguistic School. - Our graduates study in Singapore, China, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand, USA, Republic of Korea.
