New data from the Canadian government indicates that 2018 was another year of strong growth for the number of international students in Canada. It marked the third straight year of double-digit growth in the Canadian international education sector and now puts Canada ahead of the United Kingdom in regards to overseas students in the country with study permits.
It should come as no surprise that making the decision to study abroad can greatly impact your life. The quality of your post-secondary education, your career opportunities and the number of likes your photos get on social media can all increase as a result of overseas experience. However none of this changes the fact that you will need to adjust after shifting to a new city or country.
Laura Byager recently published a list of tips that helped her cope after moving from Copenhagen to London. She suggests that after moving, you should:
- Be truthful about your feelings
- Remember that you don’t have to do things just to fit it
- Get to know your new surroundings
- Dive into local culture
- Get enough exercise
- Remind yourself why you decided to travel
- Know that it doesn’t have to be forever
