International Students- What to do After Graduating?

 

As the school year comes to an end, it is time for foreign students to think about what their next option might be. For those who are finishing their certificate, diploma or degree, the post graduate work permit (PGWP) will allow you to stay and gain valuable work experience in Canada.

To be eligible for a post graduate work permit you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have studied for at least 8 months at a Designated Learning Institution on a valid study permit

  • Apply for a work permit within 90 days of receiving written confirmation of completion

Here are the best options tailored to graduates in Alberta for work and residency.
