Study In Canada

Why Study In Canada?

Ample number of collaborative programmes offering hands-on learning combined with a more theoretical approach makes Canada on the best destinations to pursue tertiary education overseas. The Canadian institutions offer tailored programmes, and these courses may differ from campus to campus, but the ultimate goal is to provide service & support to ensure success of the students.

Another reason that makes Canada a dream education destination is that some international students who have graduated from Canadian Institution are allowed to apply for permanent residency visa without moving out of the country. Also, it’s a fact that over 90% of students who graduate from Canadian institutions get employed in their field of studies within 6 months after graduation, which is why studying in Canada is said to be an all-encompassing experience.

Various Reasons To Study In Canada

  • Canadian universities are known for being consistently high quality and for offering internationally accepted degrees and credentials; some are ranked in the top 100 by reputable sources as The Times Higher Education Supplement and Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Academic Ranking of World Universities.
  • Various specialization programs under diploma, degree, post graduate diploma are offered at around 200 institutions nationwide and, tuition is generally much lower than in other leading study abroad countries. Students can pursue their studies at one of Canada’s top universities for roughly half of what it would cost to attend an equally reputable program at a private US university.
  • International students can expect to be assisted in their university studies by such resources and services as orientation sessions, support programs, academic advising, prayer rooms, safewalk programs, student clubs, and assistance with medical concerns or housing issues.
  • International students can often work while they study and take advantage of many cooperative education and internship opportunities. There are also immigration programs that international students may qualify after graduation.

Living Expense

Your average costs of living per month are likely to be around CA$600-800 (~US$450-600) for food and other expenses, not including accommodation, which will be your largest expenditure after tuition fees. Living expenses including accommodation in Canada are likely to be approximately CA$10,000-15,000 per year (~US$7,550-11,300). Living costs are generally more expensive in the biggest cities.

Typically you will be spending about CA$3,000-$6,000 (~US$2,240-4,500) each year on accommodation, which is likely to be towards the more expensive end if you live on campus in student accommodation. If you would like a cheaper option, you may consider living off-campus, but remember to take into account any extra costs of travelling to and from your university. Sharing off-campus housing with other students can also make accommodation more affordable.

If you’re under (18 or 19 in the provinces of British Columbia, Nova Scotia and the Northwest Territories) you must live with a host family in a homestay, which may be arranged by your university. At approximately CA$650-800 (~US$490-600) a month, this could be another fairly affordable option, particularly as your host family is likely to provide you with meals at no extra cost.

After Studies

If you want to work in Canada after you graduate from your studies, you must apply for a work permit under the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program. Students studying a two years course are eligible to work three years and students opting for a one year program are eligible for one year work permit.
