Work, travel, school, life – the pursuit of our goals and dreams. When’s the right time for one thing or the other? We face these questions, each and every one of us, from the time we graduate high school and throughout our life journey.
So you’ve done the travel thing, the work thing, the study abroad thing, and perhaps now that real-life explorer-learner in you is thinking about that college/university thing in British Columbia, Canada.
In super, natural British Columbia (that’s our tourism slogan by the way), we’re surrounded by abundance and it’s not only in the majestic mountains, rain forests, glaciers and oceans, lakes and river ways; it’s in our post-secondary options. BC’s post-secondary institutions offer flexible movement (aka transferability) in and among each other that allows you to have options that suit you when it is the right time for you to start or to return to furthering your education and career training.
Factoid: By 2025, of the nearly one million expected job openings in BC, eight out of 10 will require post-secondary education. A key goal of BC’s Ministry of Advanced Education is to support a smooth plan that takes students from high school through post-secondary education and right into the workforce, and to provide more support to those who want to gain that foothold in the job market.
