Why study in Canada?

Superb choice! Let’s see what Canada has to offer

With affordable tuition fees, quality institutions, post-study work and immigration options and welcoming people, it's no surprise that Canada is quickly becoming a leading destination for international students. Canada hosts more than 250,000 international students and has experienced a huge increase in demand from overseas students in recent years.
Here are just some of the reasons why Canada could be the right fit for you.

Quality education

The quality of education and living standards in Canada are among the highest in the world. Canada’s high academic standards and rigorous quality controls mean that you’ll be earning a high-quality education that will open doors for your future and benefit your career over the long term.

Affordable education

Living and tuition fees for international students in Canada are generally lower than in other countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. The cost of going to school in Canada is affordable and you’ll earn globally recognised qualifications that will set you on the path to career success.

Diversity

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. With almost all of the world’s ethnic groups represented in Canada, it’s not hard to find ethnic foods and recreation activities associated with specific cultures.

Immigration possibilities

International graduates from Canadian higher education institutions can work in Canada for up to three years following the completion of their course by completing the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PWPP). If you want to apply to become a permanent resident of Canada, this can come in very handy.

Innovative and abundant research opportunities

Research is one of the key components of a Canadian post-secondary education. You’ll have ample opportunity to become a part of this vibrant aspect of education. In Canada, the government and industry support research including: telecommunications, medicine, agriculture, computer technology, and environmental science.

Healthy and safe communities

The United Nations consistently ranks Canada as one of the best places in the world to live. As an international student in Canada, you’ll enjoy all of the same freedoms that protect Canadians – respect for human rights, equality, and a stable and peaceful society.

World-class language education

Canada is a bilingual country and is considered a world leader in language training. Canadian universities teach both French and English as a first and second language and this is an integral part of a Canadian education. You will be able to improve your fluency and capacity for either language as you further your studies and become more desirable to employers.

Exciting campus lifestyle

From Olympic-quality sports facilities to public concert halls and art galleries, Canada’s post-secondary campuses offer you enormous possibilities for learning and leisure.
