What is a TWU FAR Centre and what does my future look like?

With the guidance of a facilitator in a supportive environment, you will be equipped to achieve your goals and become a leader in your future workplace. Choose a FAR Centre now and be equipped for a lifetime of success in your future career. Once you successfully complete the GEP program, you will be offered an unconditional admission into the Master of Arts in Leadership degree from TWU where you will spend another 17 months in Canada to complete the Master's degree. When you are ready to look for a job in the Canadian marketplace, you are eligible to apply up to a 3-year open work permit (also known as Post-Graduate Work Permit).
