Why Study in Canada?
Most students prefer to study in universities in Canada because it is the most popular and cost effective study destination for education in the world. It is not only among the top three countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, but Canada is also ranked as the number one country in the world to live in.
Canada has one of the world’s best education systems, with outstanding programs in virtually all fields. At the undergraduate level, excellent programs exist in traditional disciplines, as well as in professional fields. While the quality of education is always high, universities have their own styles : large, bustling campuses or smaller, more intimate settings; a university education in English or French; metropolitan cities or small towns. You can choose to study at large universities offering a wide range of subjects at the undergraduate or graduate levels, or at small liberal arts universities with a focus on undergraduate education. Top universities and colleges in Canada are world-renowned for their high standards, safe campuses, and educational excellence. They are at the forefront of the information technology revolution and ensure that their students are equipped for the 21st century. Many U.S. companies actively recruit on Canadian campus.
Canada spends more per capita on its education system than any other country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). A Degree/Diploma from a Canadian Institute is recognized world wide. International students who graduate from Canadian Institutions enjoy successful and prosperous careers. Canada is known for its quality education & competitive entry requirements.
Permanent Residency and Canadian Immigration
International students can apply for their Permanent Residency which takes up to 15 to 18 months from within Canada. However they need to meet the minimum eligibility criteria of 67 Points.
A Safe Place To Study
Canada is considered to be a relatively peaceful, safe and orderly country. Its violent crime rate decreased for ten consecutive years from 1993 to 2003. Unlike its US neighbours to the south, firearms are strictly controlled and generally are not permitted.
Canada has traditionally been a country of immigrants and has a policy of encouraging multicultural diversity. In this vibrant setting, different perspectives are respected and learning together is encouraged. Almost all of the world's ethnic groups are represented in Canada. As a result, most ethnic foods and recreational activities associated with specific cultures are available in Canada. Clubs, informal clubs and associations representing a multitude of ethnic backgrounds are also easily accessible. International student advisors at schools can help students get in touch with such groups.
Working in Canada
International Students in Canada are allowed to work 20 hours per week during semester and 40 hours per week on vacation. Several programs may even have a paid co-op term where one gets hands on experience in working in the industry. These may even be paid co-ops. International Students also can apply for Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP) on completion of their programs. The duration of PGWPP depends on course duration, etc. For furtrher information, you are requested to visit CIC Website.
International students are expected to start planning for their studies in Canada 1 year in advance. The major intake for Canada primarily is 'Fall' i.e September. The other intake is in the month of 'Winter' i.e. January, but it depends on the program and the institution. Very few institutes might have the May intake as well.
English Language Requirements
