What did you do before you started working for Canada Law from Abroad?

I was lucky enough to start working for Canada Law from Abroad right after I graduated from my MA in England! I started part-time in 2014 attending recruitment events as well as helping with applications. Then I started advising students full time in summer 2015! I also started events coordinating around 2017/2018 to go along with student advising.

 

Why did you decide to study in the UK?

I took a year off after my BA to figure out what I really wanted to do for my MA. After a few months looking into different options, I learned about options for studying in the UK at a Study Abroad Fair! Since the applications were free, I figured why not apply and see what happens. In the end it seemed like the best (and most cost-effective) choice for me! I had a wonderful time at Kent and it then led me to working with Canada Law from Abroad when I graduated!

 

Why do you like working for Canada Law from Abroad?

The best thing about working for Canada Law from Abroad is talking about my time abroad to everyone! I love to travel and had such an amazing time studying abroad, I love to share those stories. It’s great to help students do the same thing, and to get to hear their stories and experiences as well!

 

Why do you think people from Canada should study in the UK? 

Studying in the UK is not as expensive as you might think! My friend and I compared our Master’s program costs after we graduated – we did similar programs but hers was in Canada – and it turned out that mine was actually less expensive than hers. I also finished my program a year earlier than her, which meant starting to work earlier!

 

A few of my favourite UK things:
1. The museums! There are tons and they are free to visit.
2. The beaches in Scotland. I’m from Vancouver Island and we have some amazing beaches, the ones that I’ve been to on the Isle of Skye were absolutely stunning in comparison!
3. High tea – scones and clotted cream in particular.
4. Walking tours, especially the scary ones (the haunted walking tours in Edinburgh are lots of fun!)
5. Shopping – Primark and Poundland are amazing for students especially!

What did you do before you started working for Canada Law from Abroad

My previous work experience is quite varied. I worked in fast food, at summer camps and daycares, at a museum, and held posts as a research assistant and postgraduate ambassador at university.  I discovered a new joy for the higher education sector since working with Canada Law from Abroad.

 

Why did you decide to study in the UK?

After my year of exchange at Leeds, the UK stayed on my mind. Eventually, I decided to pursue a Master’s at Birmingham. The UK university atmosphere is different to that of my Canadian university, and I was intrigued by their education system (actually, I preferred it!). On top of that, the amazing scenery within the UK and the proximity to mainland Europe meant that the travel opportunities were endless!

 

Why do you like working for Canada Law from Abroad?

I certainly enjoy the flexibility of the job, but mostly, I love that I get to interact with people in higher education and students pursuing higher education in the UK.

 

Why do you think people from Canada should study in the UK? 

I think Canadians should study in the UK because you get to experience a culture that you would think is similar because of the language, but is in actuality, so different from Canada. At the same time, there is no language barrier, so you get the best of both worlds when it comes to immersing yourself in a different country. Studying abroad means that you get to learn independence and adaptability, and it is something that I want to encourage everyone to do if at all possible.

 

Where to begin? I love all the beautiful national parks and green spaces, a good Sunday roast (especially Yorkshire puddings), the chocolate- it’s far better than in Canada for some reason, the funny words they use for things (whipped cream= squirty cream!), panel shows (8 out of 10 cats does countdown anyone?), and I especially love how excited people get when it’s sunny and just as excited when it snows

What did you do before you started working for Canada Law from Abroad?

I’ve previously worked in an advisory role several times throughout my career. My first experience was as a residence assistant at Wilfrid Laurier, which provided me with experience counselling students through all manner of issues or helping them with any questions they may have! I also have experience as an Academic Tutor and French teacher, which fostered my interest in sharing my knowledge with others. I worked in these positions prior to my Master’s degree, but they were invaluable experiences which helped pave the way to my work here at Canada Law from Abroad!

Why did you decide to study in the UK?

As a Medieval Studies major, the UK was a natural choice for my next steps. With a rich heritage and complex history, the idea of living and learning in the UK and having the opportunity to visit the very sites I was learning about was too compelling to resist. I’ve now graduated from my MA and have been living in the UK on and off for six years and am so glad I took the leap and applied abroad!
 

Why do you like working for Canada Law from Abroad?

I like working with Canada Law from Abroad because I’m happy to share my knowledge and first-hand experience to help students with the next steps of their academic journeys. Studying abroad can be the experience of a lifetime, and it's very rewarding providing students with the information to help them live out their dreams.  

 

Why do you think people from Canada should study in the UK? 

I think people from North America should study in the UK, because it is an opportunity to engage with another culture and grow from experiences outside the norm. The UK specifically is a great choice for international students as you can get a world-class education and enjoy close travel-links to Europe.
