7 Reasons to Study in Canada

Qualifications Valued Around 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. A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is globally recognized as being equivalent to those obtained from the United States or the United Kingdom.

Affordable Education

The quality of education and living standards in Canada are amongst the highest in the world, but the cost of living and tuition fees for international students are generally lower than in other countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. As such, Canada is often the preferred choice for students attending college or university.

World-Class Language Education

Did you know that Canada has two official languages and is considered a world leader in language training? Since teaching French and English as a first and second language is an integral part of a Canadian education, you will be able to improve your fluency in either language as you further your fluency in studies.

Multicultural Society

With almost all of the world’s culture represented in Canada, it’s easy to find foods and recreation activities associated with specific cultures. In fact, your international student advisor can help you get in touch with any number of cultural clubs and associations for you to join while you’re in Canada.

Exciting Campus Lifestyle

Canada’s postsecondary campuses aren’t only wired with the latest in sophisticated technology, but countless other modern amenities as well. From Olympic-quality sports facilities to public concert halls and art galleries, Canada’s postsecondary campuses offer you enormous possibilities for learning and leisure. Plus, you’ll have incredible opportunities to meet like-minded individuals and gain valuable experience through student-run governments, radio, newspapers and businesses.

Possibility of Immigration

Did you know that international students with Canadian credentials and Canadian work experience may be eligible to apply for permanent residency without having to leave Canada?
