Canada

Overview

Canada is very popular destination for students looking to gain a degree overseas, thanks to its many respected universities and its. Canada is one of the top international student destinations in the world. In 2016, about 353,000 students decided to come to Canada to study. With consistently high levels of education spending, it boasts almost uniformly high standards of higher education, with several institutions regularly featuring among the top 100 globally.

With tuition fees lower than many Anglophone countries, and health insurance cheaper than across the border in the US, it is no wonder that an increasing number of English-speaking students are starting to consider courses there. A bilingual nation, where more than three-quarters of Quebec’s population are native Francophones, Canada has a proud history of immigration and has long encouraged diversity and multiculturalism.

With a high standard of living, low crime levels, clean cities and vast expanses of natural beauty, lakes, mountains, coastal areas and national parks, Canada is an extremely desirable place to live. Its most popular sports are ice hockey, basketball, golf, lacrosse and baseball, although football, rugby and cricket are growing.

Aside from its famed maple syrup, food specialities include fresh seafood, game and poutine (French fries smothered in gravy and cheese curds), which, like many French-influenced dishes, originates in Quebec.

Why Study in Canada?

A Quality Education

One of the biggest reasons students choose to come to Canada is the quality of a Canadian education. A Canadian degree is widely recognized as equal to one from the United States, Australia, or the United Kingdom, and Canadian universities consistently do well in international rankings. In fact, in one study in 2016, three Canadian Universities were ranked in the top 50 universities in the world.

There’s a wide array of Canadian institutions to choose from, but whether you attend a university, college, or vocational school, there’s no doubt that a Canadian education is world-class.

Affordable

Cost is the most significant barrier for most students hoping to study abroad. Canadian international students pay higher tuition fees less compare to the United States, Australia or the United Kingdom.

Aside from paying tuition, international students also need to find housing and finance their daily lives. The cost of living in Canada is seriously affordable compared to most other top destinations for international students. When you combine the average annual cost of living and average annual tuition fees, Canada is clearly the most affordable option.

Work While Study

Even though Canada is a relatively affordable option, there’s no doubt that studying abroad is expensive. Luckily, international students in Canada are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week during school terms and full-time (30 hours/week) during scheduled breaks like summer vacation. Most students don’t need a work permit to work while they study, whether their job is on campus or off campus. Your study permit will indicate whether you’re allowed to work off campus.

Safety

Another big reason why students choose to come to Canada is personal safety. Studying abroad can be scary, especially if you’re leaving your friends and family behind. The Institute for Economics & Peace ranked Canada as the 8th most peaceful country in the world in 2016. Unlike most other countries, Canada is pretty isolated in terms of location. It’s protected on three sides by oceans, and only shares a border with the United States. That distance provides a bit of a buffer from most international conflicts.

Canada has a democratically elected government, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of those living in Canada are protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Canada has a well-deserved international reputation as a tolerant and non-discriminatory society. Immigrants make up a fifth of Canada’s entire population, and Canadian laws ensure that all people, regardless of their circumstance, are protected from discrimination.

Immigration Option

When you travel abroad to study, you usually get temporary status in the country you’re studying in. That status usually expires when your program ends, so you have to return home when you graduate. Canada has a lot of programs designed to encourage international students to transition to permanent residence after their studies. Options like the Post-Graduation Work Permit let graduates stay and work on an open work permit after graduation and give them an opportunity to get some Canadian work experience. Most Canadian provinces have Provincial Nominee streams for applicants with experience studying or working in the province, and Canada’s federal economic immigration streams offer additional points for Canadian work and study experience. In 2015, 51 percent of international students planned to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Economics Opportunities

Canada is one of the largest economies in the world, so there are a lot of working opportunities for graduates. As a student, you have the opportunity to network with leaders in your field. While you study, or after you graduate, you can gain experience working for industry leading companies in Canada.

If you choose to return to your home country, your Canadian education, and improved language ability in either English or French, could help open doors to working in international companies. Canadian work experience and education are highly valued everywhere in the world, so they could also increase your chances of receiving a job offer from employers all over the world.

If you choose to stay in Canada, Canadian employers tend to prefer Canadian work experience over work experience from elsewhere in the world, so your student and work experience could increase your chances of receiving a job offer!

Cost of Living

The average cost of living per year for international students in Canada was around US$13,021 - US$16,655 that includes student fees, books and stationaries, personal and households expenses, entertainment, housing and food costs also basic health cover.
