Tell Us Your International Education Story
Enter CBIE’s 5th Annual Photo and Video Contest
What’s your story? What unforgettable moments have you experienced in your international education journey? What did you learn?
The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) is pleased to announce the 5th annual CBIE Photo and Video Contest.
International education has the power to change the world – to break down cultural and regional barriers and expand personal, academic and professional horizons. Everyone benefits when you are immersed in a new culture, exchanging new ideas at faraway institutions and creating lifelong friendships and relationships. CBIE member institutions help make these experiences happen for thousands of students each year. We invite you to share your story with us.
- Show us how your studies, research or internship abroad have enriched (or are currently enriching) your life and work.
- Send us a photo accompanied by a short testimonial (200 words or less) OR make your story come alive with a video submission.
- We are looking for submissions that clearly show the transformative benefits of international study and exchange.
- The contest is open to international and Canadian students, (university/college/language schools/high school) at CBIE member institutions. View list of CBIE member institutions.
You could win one of our grand prizes!
