  1. Hi everyone i'm actually an international student in NBCC in Newbrunswick, i was supposed to start my second year this september but my family can't help me financially anymore so this summer i didnt make enough for rent and tuition. So i consider taking a semester to make some money to continue and also instead of taking a semester off can i a take 1 or 2 months off then come back later?.
     
  2. What you're proposing to do is illegal. You can take time off school - but you can't work. Working is illegal if you're not in school full time or not on a scheduled break.
     
  3. So uf i take off school and i dont work will affect me when i will apply for the pgwp after i graduate?
     
  4. Yes - it's possible your PGWP will still be refused. One of the PGWP requirements is that your studies must be continuous.
