Why Study in Canada

Four easy steps to studying in Canada with IDP Education

While deciding to study overseas is exciting, we understand there are a lot of factors to consider. IDP Education is here to provide accurate guidance and support as you explore educational opportunities in Canada. This four step guide outlines the key steps to follow to begin your international education. 

Canada hosts more than 250,000 international students and has experienced a huge increase in popularity for overseas students in recent years. It is no surprise that Canada is fast becoming a leading destination for international students with affordable tuition fees, quality institutions, post-study work and immigration options and welcoming people. 

Here are some reasons why.

Canada is affordable

The cost of living and tuition in Canada are relatively affordable. In fact, you will only need as little as around PHP 800,000 a year to live as a student in Canada, which is significantly more affordable than studying in most other first-world countries.

Canada is beautiful

Canada is known for its natural beauty, clean cities and first-rate healthcare and public transport systems. Although known for a diversity of seasons and temperatures, and even some snow, some parts of Canada have very mild winters. Canada is also generally safe, politically stable, and orderly, perfect for students who want a worry-free study experience. 

Canada is multicultural

Traditionally a country of immigrants, Canadians are proud of their nation’s diversity, with one in three Canadians possessing an ethnic background other than British, French or indigenous. Generally, as a student living in Canada, you can expect a peaceful, multicultural environment with people who are friendly and interested in learning about new cultures. As a bonus, Canada borders the USA and offers easy access to travel experiences there.

According to the International Monetary Fund, Canada is among the top 10 wealthiest nations in the world. With its highly regarded education system, dedication to growth and expansion, and strong economic climate, Canada is an ideal location to study.
