 Tips For Overseas Education:

International Student Fees: Studying overseas will be more expensive because you will be paying as an international student.

Certification: If you want to come back and practice as an SLP in Canada, you need to make sure that you follow the correct steps. Visit the SAC website to see requirements for internationally educated SLPs.

Contact Representatives: Often universities have representatives that connect with potential international students. They will advise on the process of attending the school, obtaining a student visa, etc. Representatives may be visiting your current university so take advantage of those opportunities.
