International Academic and Career Preparation

Pursuing an education abroad means opening your mind to new possibilities, and gaining valuable skills and experiences that will benefit your future. But it also means adapting to new academic and workplace expectations, routines and cultural differences you might not be aware of. How successfully will you adapt to these changes?

We can bridge the gap and help you prepare for your new environment. Our international academic and career preparation programs focus on what you need to succeed in your North American studies and workplace experiences and prepare you for the adventure that lies ahead.
