They will learn about Canada’s education system, scholarships, the visa application process, work opportunities after graduation, and experiences from Canadian alumni.

Visitors will also be able to attend seminars on student visas and studying in Canada delivered by officials from the Consulate General of Canada.

Besides, Canada will host the first edition of EduCanada Art + Design Workshops at The Reverie Saigon Hotel in HCMC on October 26 and the Melia Hotel in Hanoi on October 27.

These free-admission events are open to all creative art and design lovers looking to engage with top Canadian art and design specialized schools like OCAD University, NASCAD University, Vancouver Film School and Toronto Film School.

Highlights of the events include a series of interactive workshops on animation, game design and portfolio development with Canada’s award-winning artists and lecturers, one-on-one consultation with Canadian institutions about their programs, and portfolio review sessions where students share their work with Canadian institutions to receive useful feedback.

In 2018, for the first time, Canada hosted over 720,000 students from around the world with more than 20,330 from Vietnam. This huge growth of 46% compared to 2017 demonstrates that Vietnamese students and parents recognize Canada as one of the safest, most welcoming and multicultural study destinations in the world.
