About the Study & Stay PEI Program

International students: Student applications for the 2021-2022 cohort are closed! The new cohort will open in August/September 2022.

The Study & Stay PEI Program (previously the Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ – Prince Edward Island program) is funded by the province of Prince Edward Island and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.

The goal of Study & Stay PEI is to support a group of international students in their final year of study at a PEI post-secondary institution to live, work, and stay in Prince Edward Island post-graduation. The program provides student participants with the essential skills, resources, and support needed as they transition from ‘student’ to ‘professional’ in their final year of study. The current Study & Stay PEI program runs from October, 2021, to August, 2022.

The program focuses on:

1) Cultural and social adaptation

2) Professional communication

3) Career and labour market support

4) Networking and professional connections

5) Access to immigration resources and support and

6) Mentorship (optional)
