UNBSJ program helps prepare international students for graduation

September 11, 2012

Offered in partnership with Mount Allison University, the University of New Brunswick Saint John is piloting a new program called Graduation Preparation Series (GPS) that is designed to help senior-level international students plan and prepare for their final year at the institution, as well as to prepare them for life as a new graduate in a professional working environment. The GPS program is divided into 2 levels consisting of 5 sessions, with each session focusing on a specific area, such as career path development, job hunting, and mock interviews. Participants are given the chance to increase their strengths within each area. After both levels are completed, participants have the opportunity to apply for a paid internship with local businesses and organizations. New Brunswick's PSE department is collaborating with UNBSJ as a sponsor of the GPS program. UNB News
