WHY STUDY IN CANADA?
What comes to mind when you think of Canada?
Breathtaking views, large lakes, the explosion of colors when fall comes, the big cities? You will find a bit of everything here. There is so much to see and many things to do! What better way to experience Canadian life than to choose a good study pathway which will allow you dive in the culture and society of this great country?
Canada is, without a doubt, one of the largest countries in the world. It’s home to ten provinces and 3 territories, each with unique characteristics, first-rate education and diverse study opportunities. It is known for its safe and friendly communities. You have probably heard about Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and Montreal. These well-known cities aren’t just famous because of their large metropolitan areas, they are the most important hubs of the Canadian economy and some of the best places to enrich your cultural knowledge and build solid foundations for future career opportunities. However, no matter which city you choose to live and study in, you will not be disappointed as you will be sure to receive a top-notch education that you will be proud to show off on your resume!
OUR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
Canada is widely considered as one of the most livable countries in the world. It’s affordable and known for its political stability, safety and excellent health care. The country welcomes thousands of international students from all over the world each year. No matter where you are from, Canada will always make you feel at home and you will have the experience of a lifetime.
From business schools educating future CEO’s of global corporations to medical schools training the doctors of tomorrow, the curriculums are developed to give theoretical and real-world experience.
Now you are probably wondering…how much is it going to cost? You’ll be glad to know that Canada’s cost of living and tuition fees are generally much lower than those in other English-speaking countries. And thanks to its numerous institutions you will have the freedom to choose between part-time and full-time programs, as well as on-the-job training through internships.
It’s good to know that:
- Tuition fees vary based on program of study, but for most courses the tuition is less compared to other western counterparts. And when the tuition is affordable, the payment doesn’t become a burden, so you can focus on your education and ensure you complete your program.
- If English isn’t your first language, you might need to take a test to demonstrate your English ability. So, make sure to first check with the institution to verify what test and scores they will accept.
- Before applying for a study permit, you must have a letter of acceptance from the institution of your choice.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STUDY PERMIT?
A Canadian study permit will allow you to stay in the country for the duration of your course. If your course lasts for less than six months, you’re even luckier, in this case you won’t need to request a study permit. For anyone whose program lasts longer, however, you will need to apply for a Canadian study permit. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you!
One of the best benefits about having a Canadian study permit, besides being able to study, is the possibility to work on-campus or even off-campus during your program of study. Thus giving you a well-rounded experience of the Canadian life and the opportunity to find employment opportunities.
Campuses across the country have vibrant student life with a variety of activities you can take part in. From joining an athletic team to a club based on an interest you have; your student experience will be amazing. Universities and colleges have departments dedicated to helping you find ways to get involved in your campus community and really take advantage of everything your education will offer you. Adopting an open mind to trying new things will enhance your experience in Canada.
When planning to come to Canada, coming a few days early will help you to familiarize yourself with your new city and the campus you’re living on.
Student life departments will help you find housing, create or find clubs to join, organize social events, and much more. While you may be moving to a country on your own, where you don’t know anyone, you will not be alone when you’re here!
