The Job Placement Process
Understanding the global marketplace is the key to navigating the job placement process.
The economies of many countries around the world, including Africa, have experienced unpredictable downturns. In the short term, economic conditions and visa/work permit issues may impact your plans to study in Africa or abroad. If you decide to study abroad, be sure to understand your potential for international study and post-graduate employment, based on the economic and political conditions of the area.
Visas and Immigration Considerations
If you choose to study abroad, understand that visa guidelines are constantly evolving in response to the ever-changing economic and social needs of a particular country. The schools you are considering can refer you to the correct government agency for attaining a student visa. Since getting a student visa can take a substantial amount of time, be sure to plan ahead.
Familiarize yourself with your destination country’s visa guidelines by researching related websites of your home country and those of your intended study destination. There could be recent changes, so review the latest information yourself rather than depending on dated sources.
