Canada Study Travel Plan

Example: Step by Step Registration Plan for Canada Schools & Travel

PRE-Registration Steps

Step 1 - Write your list of Study Goals which should include university degrees or college diplomas or training certificates or school subjects or career training licenses.

This is also a good time to talk to your existing school guidance counselor or existing mentors who have helped you succeed to this point in your life. They may suggest additional resources or counselors to help you with your future study selections.

Step 2 - Collect your existing school records, certificates, degrees and make copies. This prerequisite information is needed by most schools as part of the admission process.

Step 3 - Research which schools offer your study subject goals (pick 5 to 10) You should research the accreditation of the schools to confirm that they are real, study programs are accredited and the school is in good standing. UNESCO and government education departments list accredited schools which can be accessed by international students.

You should contact any family members or classmates who have actually attended the school or schools that you have short-listed. Ask them for accurate information about the schools, teachers, programs and value of the degree or certificate to employers.

Step 4 - Estimate your study budget - tuition, travel and living expenses. Remember to save enough money for emergencies and even a flight home if you are required to return home for a family situation.

Step 5 - Contact schools or education consultants - ask for registration information, costs, eligibility, testimonials and references. Ask about required medical tests, vaccinations and mask policies and any medical document requirements.
