In an interview with Legit, Batouly, said that although Canada has one of the best education systems in the world, schooling there comes at a higher cost for foreign students.
The Guinean native said the system is flexible such that foreign students can work while they study as the school period is different from working hours.
She however noted that many international students lose focus when they arrive in Canada.
“…You lose your study start ups because the school and the immigration are linked – You cannot hide yourself.”
Batouly added that, unlike the US, it is also not possible for foreign students to live and work in Canada without papers or the necessary documents.
The lady faulted the notion that jobs are commonplace there as there is no place anywhere in the world that the government guarantees 100% job for citizens and immigrants, even in Canada.
I’m sorry to say that… We have to stop lying.
“If I tell you there are jobs here, you’d be thinking that when you get here the next day you’d get a job.. You’d be looking for a job here, 3 months you’d not get.”
She slammed Africans who think that because they have a Master’s degree or PhD back home they’d get high-paying jobs.
