How international students can survive, thrive while studying in Canada

April 17, 2018

Studying as an international student in Canada can be extremely rewarding, but requires “nerves of steel,” writes Prajwala Dixit. Reflecting on her experience as an international student, the author notes that social isolation, culture shock, and xenophobic experiences remain significant challenges to international students during their studies. Further, barriers to gaining permanent residency create difficulties for those who graduate from Canadian PSE. To help address these barriers, Dixit recommends that international students improve their chances at a bright future in Canada by volunteering, building a resume, learning French, and a getting a part-time job. CBC
