What are the upcoming intakes in Canada?

Know all about the intakes available in Canada

Unlike a single intake in Indian universities, Canadian colleges and universities offer three intakes. Intakes may also be referred to as a semester in some institutions. The three intakes available in Canada are:

  • Fall: A popular intake among Indian students, Fall starts in the month of September
  • Winter: Starts in the January; it’s best if you miss the September intake
  • Summer: Available for limited programs and colleges, the Summer intake usually starts around April and May 

Which intake to opt for?

It can get a bit confusing to choose the intake that’s best for you. Consider factors like the availability of your preferred program, your academic records, entrance test scores, acceptance rates, job opportunities and your readiness to join the program whilst making a decision.

While most Indian students prefer the September intake, January and April intakes are equally good for certain programs. We suggest, if you do not have your score cards ready, it’s better to skip the haste and apply for the next intake.

In order to make a well-informed decision, you can book a free counselling session with our experienced counsellors who can advise you on available intakes, course selection, application submission, and visa procedure.
Here’s an overview of the intakes available for different programs in universities and colleges:
