Why Study in Canada?

Why Study in Canada?


Best Place to Study and Live

As one of the countries to launch a multiculturalism policy, Canada was always going to be a great place for foreigners. Having been voted for consecutive years as the best country to live and study in, Canada has been welcoming more than 200,000 researchers and students each year. For most of these students, making the decision was not entirely hard at all. Other than the possibility of landing a scholarship from the government or other initiatives, there are other attractive reasons students want to further their education in Canada.

Top Class Universities

The emphasis on research in post-secondary education has greatly improved the statuses of Canadian universities. 10 or more Canadian universities have been selected for different rankings of top class universities in the world. Other than the high academic standards upheld by Canadian universities, there are diverse schools of studies students can choose from. These include but are not limited to computer science and technology, agriculture, environmental studies, medicine, telecommunications among others. The government and equally the private sector have remained supportive in research projects to make Canadian universities offer nothing less than cutting edge education.

Affordable Living Costs

With Canada, you will enjoy the benefits of living in a first-world economy, at a relatively low cost. The country has three territories which have been subdivided into ten provinces hosting an average population of 35 million. Bordering Canada to the south is the USA. The two countries have strong immigration arrangements that allow Canadians to move to the USA, and hence you will find a majority of the 35million settling around the border area. The government and Canadian natives are all committed to ensuring for a diverse culture. Everyone is friendly to each other, and this diversity of freedom serves as a protection to all. The country is peaceful, stable and quite safe with a very low crime rate, making it easy for international students to settle in.

Employment Rate

Other than getting a strong, globally certificate from Canadian universities, you will get a job too. With over 5,000 global agreements with both local and international companies, Canadian graduates are most likely to secure a job sooner than in any other location. The education system focuses on an industry-specified research. This prepares the graduates for the work environment, long before they leave the university halls. It is no surprise that 90% graduates from Canada can secure permanent employment in less than six months after they graduated.

Studying in Canada would be a dream come true experience for anyone, literally, since Canada is ranked as the BEST PLACE in the world to LIVE.  Because of its access to education, high life expectancy and low crime rates, Canada is a very attractive destination for students throughout the world.

Canada welcomes immigrants with open arms. Thus, those who complete their education can decide upon staying back and complete the immigration process to enjoy the best life in the world! As a country of immigrants, Canada places a high-demand on multicultural diversity.

Moreover, Canadian education costs are relatively cheaper than US and other countries - by at least 30%. Coupled with its low cost of living, Canada is one of the best destinations for international students.

Canada is a bilingual country with two official languages - English and French.  Most of the French-speaking inhabitants live in Quebec. However, almost all non-Quebec based universities offer education instruction in English only.

Education System

Education Chart

The education system in Canada encompasses both publicly-funded and private schools, including: community colleges / technical institutes, career colleges, language schools, secondary schools, summer camps, universities and university colleges.  Canadian universities are largely public funded and as a result, are of a consistently high quality, regardless of location or area of study.  At the same time, they (the universities) retain a high degree of academic autonomy.

Education is a provincial responsibility under the Canadian constitution, which means there are significant differences between the education systems of the different provinces. However, education is important to Canadians, and standards across the country are uniformly high.

Once students complete elementary school which is up to 8thstandard, they would take up High school education comprising of classes 9thto 12th.

There are more than 175 post-secondary institutions that offer various programs such as Certificate, Diploma and Bachelor's, including vocational and adult-education. These institutions are known as Community colleges, Technical Institute, University College and ce`gep. All these colleges are members of the Association of Canadian Community colleges.

Undergraduate programs are of 4 years duration, except in Ontario, where there is three-year Bachelor degrees and three-year Master's degrees. In the other parts of Canada, post-graduate programs (Master's) are of two years duration.

A degree from a Canadian university is recognized world-wide and as a result, international students who graduate from Canadian universities enjoy successful and prosperous careers.

Application Procedure

Financial Assistance for International Students

There are limited scholarships available in Canada. They rarely cover the full cost of a study program and they are not always easy to find. Scholarships to international students are available at some Canadian institutions for students with exceptional results. The amount awarded varies from one institution to another and usually covers only part of a student's education and living expenses. The calendar of each university in Canada includes a complete and detailed list of the scholarships it administers. This information is usually available on school web sites as well. Obtaining a scholarship is very competitive and applications must be made directly to each university along with the application for admission. Community and Career Colleges do not usually award scholarships nor do school boards or most private schools.

There are various organisations within Canada that administer scholarship programs in various countries but they are usually for graduate students and professors who are studying or researching a specific subject; Study in Canada is a typical area for which scholarships are awarded. Students should also check within their home country through public and private organisations for any financial assistance they may provide to

Work prospects

Full-time students registered in a degree or diploma-granting course are allowed to work on the campus of the institution at which they are registered without the need for an employment authorisation. This includes on-campus employment for graduate, teaching or research assistants.

Spouses of full-time students are eligible for open or open/restricted employment authorisation, depending on medical requirements having been met.

Students whose intended employment forms an integral part of their course of study such as undergraduate co-op programs, some programs offered by career colleges or language schools and some high school programs.
