Study in Canada

IMMIGRATION – STUDY IN CANADA

International students choose to study in Canada for the lower cost of tuition and living fees that go along with the internationally renowned and excellence in education, which is respected all over the world. This quality education prepares these students for professional positions in Canada or abroad.

Student immigration to Canada can come in a couple of different ways:

  • Canada Study Permit – is the most common way for immigrant students to come to Canada for their education. A study permit is obtained by choosing a school and an educational program that fits the student’s plans and then make an application for a Canada Study Permit.
  • Study Without Permit – applies to family members of diplomats which also includes private staff, minor children of temporary students of less than six months of study or temporary foreign workers, members of foreign armed forces or may also include any minor child residing in Canada whether they are in primary or secondary school or even in pre-school. Study without permit may also apply to children of Canadian permanent residents and new/current Canadian citizens.

Working in Canada, while an international student in Canada for educational purposes is also possible. Whatever the educational plans, once a school is found and the application submitted and accepted, an application to study in Canada with a permit or without a permit can be submitted to immigration authorities.

Finding an educational institute can be made easier in Canada through a program called SchoolMatch, which is provided by the Canadian government for foreign and exchange students. Through this program, educational candidates can find assistance in choosing an educational facility which suits their needs, facilities such as universities, colleges, technological facilities and also educational facilities for younger students. The program can also assist potential students with the application process for admission. An application for admission must be submitted and a letter of admission received, prior to obtaining a Canada Study Permit.

Other options may also be available to a potential foreign student to enter Canada and study without a Canada Study Permit, prior to entering Canada. Work opportunities while in Canada as a student should also be considered prior to entering Canada.

The Canadian government has also accounted for ways of encouraging students to stay in Canada after completing a foreign student’s Canadian studies. Through work experience, Canada offers eligibility to foreign students to apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit. Through the Canadian Experience Class or the Quebec Experience Class, a former educational student and recent graduate could be eligible for Canadian Permanent Resident status or may go on to obtain a Canadian Citizenship.

Post-Graduate Work Permits allow some international graduating students who have completed their studies in Canada, the opportunity to stay in Canada and gain employment and work under an open work permit for up to three years after graduation.

Canadian Citizenship and Immigration also offers an opportunity for international students to become permanent residents in Canada. Permanent Resident Status is offered to international students through a variety of programs.

  • CANADIAN EXPERIENCE CLASS
    • With Canadian education or Canadian work experience, immigrant candidates have the opportunity to immigrate to Canada permanently.
  • PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAMS
    • Canadian provinces and territories have detailed programs with specific needs, which in turn, can provide graduates to immigrate to Canada permanently.
  • QUEBEC EXPERIENCE CLASS (PEQ)
    • The province of Quebec offers international students with Quebec education or Quebec work experience, the opportunity to become permanent residents in Canada.

CANADIAN EDUCATION

Canada’s educational system is considered around the world, to be a top educational system. Elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities as well as educational trades systems are some of the best educational systems in the world.

In Canada, the term “school” is often used to refer to a variety of educational institutions. Schools fall into one of four categories:

 

  • University and College
  • Trade and Vocational
  • Language Schools
  • Primary or Secondary

 

Canada is known to have some of the best educational providers, and as in the case of the Canadian Trades Programs, Canada is known to have one of the top safety instruction systems in the world.

Vocational programs in Canada are among the top programs in the world. Canadian educational facilities house students of every background and every interest.

International students are offered the same educational opportunities as all Canadian students. Because of this educational opportunity, international students who study in Canada receive internationally valued, top education, which prepares them for almost every future professional outcome.

Combining this top educational system with lower tuition fees and lower living costs, compared to other developed countries, Canada is a top choice for over 300,000 international students. The number of international students attending Canadian educational facilities grows year over year.

Becoming a student of Canadian Education, an international student must first find a school which offers the course of study the student is interested in pursuing. To assist the international student in finding the right school, the Canadian Government has offered the following program:

  • CANADA VISA SCHOOL SEARCH
    • This search program helps a qualified international student candidate to find the proper Canadian educational facility, to suit their needs and match their expectations and goals.

To better understand your choices and make informed decisions an international student must ask themselves many questions. Finding answers to these questions will help narrow-down the choices available for educational facilities and where the facilities are located and the benefits the facility has to offer. Some questions to be considered are:

  • Am I looking to obtain a degree?
  • What category of degree am I looking to obtain?
  • How will my studies improve or alter my career path?
  • Am I looking to use my education as a starting point with a goal to obtain Canadian Permanent Residence?
  • What kind of time frame am I able to commit to my educational goals?
  • What are my financial commitments or how much money can I commit to my Canadian education?

It is important for an international student to choose a program that will help them accomplish both short-term and long-term goals. Many educational facilities will offer information sessions, tours, and personal interviews which can help the international student make a choice of the facility they would like to attend.

International students may wish to speak with school representatives, current students or even alumni to become better acquainted with the pros and cons of a course of study or institute. There are also school informational sessions to attend online or at a location near the student.

Once you have made a choice on the program of study, the next step is to research institutes that teach the program. Some factors to take into account are:

 

  • Total cost of tuition
  • Location of the institution
  • Cost of living during school year
  • Housing during out-of-session interims
  • Student to teacher ratio
  • Type of student executive, organizations and clubs
  • Study assistance for international students

 

For international students who are looking to move to Canada on a permanent basis, acceptance into a Canadian Study Program is a popular avenue for starting towards those goals and achieving Canada Permanent Resident status.

Also, for an international student, there are other benefits to studying in Canada. As previously mentioned some international students studying in Canada are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week while in school and studying, and during school breaks, these students may be eligible to work on a full-time schedule.

For Canadian graduating international students, there is an opportunity to acquire a Post-Graduation Work Permit. This Canadian work permit can last as long as the study period prior to graduation and allowing the international student the opportunity to remain in Canada for many years before deciding to become a Canada Permanent Resident.

There is an opportunity for international students to bring a spouse or common-law partner to Canada during the study period of the international student and allowing the spouse to obtain a full-time Open Work Permit. This work permit allows the spouse to work for any employer of their choosing.

Along with the opportunity for an international student to bring a spouse or common-law partner to Canada during their study period; international students, studying in Canada are able to bring their minor children to Canada and have them study in Canadian educational facilities at the same rate that Canadian citizens pay for their education.

Whether or not an international student chooses to more than one Canadian educational facility or even if they maintain a preference to only apply to one student educational facility, the next step in the process is to complete and submit an application to the facility. Once an acceptance is made by the institution, a facility number and student identification number are issued to the international student.

An international student can learn what an institution’s facility number is, by looking online for a (DLI) Designated Learning Institution List. Potential post-secondary international students must provide the DLI number from the list, for the school they have chosen and been accepted into, in the documentation when applying for a Canada Study Permit.

In some post-secondary international student cases, potential students may be excluded from the need to provide a letter of acceptance from the DLI, when they apply for the Canadian Study Permit. Some of the following cases, (these may not be the only kinds of cases) may apply to this rule:

  • International students at a primary grade or secondary grade level institution. Schools in these levels are routinely designated, and a DLI number is not provided.
  • Foreign national family member whose application for a temporary or permanent Canadian Work Permit or a Canada Study Permit is approved in writing before the foreign national enters Canada. In this instance, the family member could acquire Canada Open Study Permit.
  • Post-secondary educational facilities in Quebec are under provincial government designation, but do not or may not have a specific unique DLI number.

In some cases, an institution may lose their government designated status. Consequently, and depending on when the status is lost, the foreign student may be affected by the status loss.

  • If an international individual applies for a Canada Study Permit with a letter of acceptance from an educational institution that is not a DLI or has lost the DLI, the Canada Study Permit application is refused.
  • If an international individual applies for a Canada Study Permit with a letter of acceptance from an educational institution, but the institution subsequently loses its designated status before the study permit can be issued, the potential student may choose one of three options:
    • The potential student may withdraw their application for a Canada Study Permit;
    • The potential student may submit a letter of acceptance from a changed Designated Learning Institute;
    • The potential student may do nothing, the application will be administered according to the information provided. The application for the Canada Study Permit will then be refused.
  • The potential student may receive a Canada Study Permit for a DLI, and the institution loses its designated status after the study permit is issued, the potential student may choose one of two options:
    • The international student may transfer to a different Designated Learning Institute;
    • The international student may continue to study at the non-designated learning institution until their Canada Study Permit In this case, the Canada Study Permit may not obtain a renewal for the non-designated institution.

REQUIREMENTS FOR CANADIAN STUDY PERMIT

Obtaining an admission to a Canadian Educational Facility is the first requirement in obtaining a Canada Study Permit. Only educational facilities which are classified by the Canadian government as being a Designated Learning Institute may be considered when choosing an educational facility.

With this part of the process over, it allows a potential international student to concentrate on the other aspects of the Canada Study Permit. The following are the other requirements necessary to obtain a Canada Study Permit:

LANGUAGE -ENGLISH AND/OR FRENCH:

Canada has two official languages which are English and French. When choosing a DLI this may be something considered by a potential foreign student. Individual DLI may have requirements, but this will also affect the Canada Study Permit. International students may need to pass an examination of qualification for their language abilities of either English or French, depending on the location and the educational institute chosen. This exam is necessary for all potential foreign students where English or French is not the individual’s first language. Testing may be administered as any of the following:

  • Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
  • Canadian Academic English Language Test (CAEL)
  • Some students may be eligible to enroll in a course of study in their own language
  • Some students may be eligible for a program at an English as a Second Language (ESL) partner educational institute.
  • For French language institutions, a student may be asked to take a recognized French test
  • Some educational facilities may use their own forms of language assessment approaches

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS:

Educational standards, assessments and qualifications are dependent upon the individual educational institute, in Canada. The Canadian government has not placed standardized post-secondary testing to establish qualifications for international students into a post-secondary course of study.

International student applicants are required to be sure meet the requirements of the individual institute prior to obtaining a Canada Study Permit or entering Canada for study. Requirements for institutes can be found on the educational institute’s website or by contacting the relevant facility.

APPLICATION DEADLINES:

Educational facilities have varying application deadlines. Some Facilities only take applications during specific times of the year and the wait-time for an acceptance into a facility in Canada may take anywhere from four to six months. With this timeframe in mind; a potential international student must consider the time it will take when applying for a Canada Study Permit. The time required for a decision for the Canada Study Permit prior to any travel time to Canada can be between eight to fifteen weeks. Therefore, it is wise to gather relevant documentation and other information at least one year in advance.

ACADEMIC YEAR:

Canadian post-secondary academic school year consistently extends from September to May. Certain educational facilities are on a semester system. Certain facilities provide a trimester system, allowing for a full course-load even during the summer. Certain institutions may provide a limited course selection or a limited timetable during summer months. It is optional, in most educational facilities holding summer sessions, to enroll in summer courses. Some study course programs may have a January start.

 

 

STUDYING ENGLISH OR FRENCH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE:

Prospective international students looking to study either French or English as a Second Language at a private educational institution in Canada, can confirm that the course of study is of good quality. This is available through the Languages Canada website, administered through the same organization, provides an accurate valuation of the language schools across Canada. The website also offers contact lists of approved programs and members offering language programs.

INSTITUTION AND PROGRAM RECOGNITION:

Provincial and territorial governments in Canada oversee education. Provincial or territorial legislation provides designated and regulated colleges. The same legislation provides universities the right to grant degrees. Prospective international students are obliged to pursue studies at a Designated Learning Institution (DLI). DLI status is regulated by the province or territory in which the educational facility is located. Prior to submitting an application to any institution, international student candidates should confirm that the desired institution has a DLI status. A list of DLI facilities by province, is available online as Designated Learning Institution List.

Canada does not provide a federal government ranking of Canadian Universities and Canadian Colleges. However, many media sources and publications have rated Canadian educational institutions highly on lists of post-secondary education facilities worldwide.

DISTANCE EDUCATION:

In cases where international individuals are unable to be in Canada to study at a post-secondary institution, online educational programs offered by Canadian universities and colleges may be available. Canadian online educational programs can provide international individuals with a beginning start to a Canadian degree, diploma, or certificate. With these online course completions, a student may come to Canada to attend an educational institution in their second or third year of an educational program.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

International individuals looking to arrange financial help to finance their Canadian education, should first contact the educational representative in the government in their home country, where they have citizenship. Some governments in foreign countries provide scholarships and awards or low-interest loans for individuals looking to study abroad. Some Canadian colleges and universities or other designated learning institutes may have financing opportunities available for international students who qualify to study in Canada.

Some Canadian educational facilities can offer transfer credits from one college or university to a different post-secondary educational facility. Policies surrounding transfer credits are individual as the facility applied.

APPLICATION:

Once an international student candidate has chosen a Canadian university or college, they should defer to that educational facility’s website or contact the office of admissions for information on what method to apply. Information on educational institutions may be found using the CanadaVisa School Search tool. Detailed reports on schools can be obtained using the School Match tool. Successful international student applicants are issued a Letter of Acceptance, to be used in the application for a Canada Study Permit.

LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE:

A Letter of Acceptance is mandatory for an application for a Canada Study Permit. In order to obtain a Letter of Acceptance, a potential international student may first submit an application to a Designated Learning Institution (DLI). If the individual is successful in their application, the institution will issue a Letter of Acceptance. For the purposes of a Canada Study Permit application. The following elements are mandatory in the Letter of Acceptance:

  • The international student’s legal full name, date of birth, and complete legal mailing address;
  • The international student’s identification number (IDN), if applicable;
  • The name of the institution;
  • The name of the official contact person of the educational facility;
  • The contact information of the educational institution;
  • If the Designated Learning Institute is a private institution, the official licensing information for the educational institution should be clearly stated (commonly found in the educational institution’s letterhead);
  • The Designated Learning Institute number;
  • Type of school or educational facility (e.g. private, public, post-secondary college, community college, or technical college — );
  • The name of study program, educational level, and year of study into which the student is accepted;
  • The estimated length of the study program, or proposed date of conclusion of the study program;
  • The study program start date;
  • The latest date by which a student may register for the study program;
  • The study program work load (full-time or part-time);
  • The estimated tuition fees for the first year of study;
  • Scholarships, grants and awards or other financial aid (if applicable);
  • The details of a required internship or work placement, (if applicable);
  • The expiry date of the Letter of Acceptance and if necessary a supporting Letter of Extension;
  • Conditions of Acceptance to the Designated Learning Institute (if applicable) — this may include prerequisite courses, previous qualifications, or proof of language knowledge;
  • If the Designated Learning Institute is in Quebec, the requirement of a Quebec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) should be clearly stated;

Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) offers a template for the Letter of Acceptance, and instructions for completion of the required information.

A Letter of Acceptance from a Designated Learning Institute is not a guarantee that the Canada Study Permit application will be approved. It is at the discretion of IRCC to approve an application for a study permit.

 

 

EXEMPTIONS FROM THE REQUIREMENT FOR A LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE

Some potential international students may be excused from the necessity for a Letter of Acceptance.

  • If a foreign national receives written approval for a Temporary Work Permit or Canada Study Permit prior to entering Canada, their family members may be eligible to apply for a Canada Study Permit without a Letter of Acceptance.
  • International student candidates who are looking to pursue a study program of six months or less in length do not need to obtain a Letter of Acceptance, because a Canada Study Permit is not required.

STUDY PERMITS FOR MORE THAN ONE DLI:

In some cases, an international applicant is applying for a Canada Study Permit for a program of study presented by more than one educational facility, the Letter of Acceptance should outline this specific condition clearly. Both educational facilities must be Designated Learning Institutions. In this situation, the Letter of Acceptance should be issued by the Designated Learning Institutions issuing the degree, diploma, or certificate.

If the degree, diploma, or certificate is issued by more than one Designated Learning Institutions jointly, the Letter of Acceptance should be issued by the Designated Learning Institutions where the student intends to begin his or her study program. In this situation, the Letter of Acceptance should clearly state:

  • The name, type, and location of the other institution;
  • The course(s) the potential student intends to pursue at a different institution; and/or
  • The semester(s) that the potential student intends to spend at a different institution.

When the study permit is issued, the Designated Learning Institutions may be specified as the institution that issued the Letter of Acceptance. Other institutions should be listed in the Remarks section of the Canada Study Permit.

 

 

CONDITIONAL LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE:

A Letter of Acceptance may be issued to an international student candidate on a conditional basis. The letter could mandate that the candidate first complete a prerequisite course of program in order to be eligible for a place in a study program. An example of a conditional offer of acceptance may mean a potential student is required to complete an English as a Second Language (ESL) or French as a Second Language (FRSL) course prior to an allowance into the more progressive study program.

In a situation like this, a Canada Study Permit is issued only for the period of the prerequisite program. Only after successfully finishing the prerequisite program, may a student make an application for a subsequent Canada Study Permit for the initial study program.

RENEWAL OF A STUDY PERMIT:

A second Letter of Acceptance is not normally mandatory for the renewal of a study permit. An immigration officer examining an application for a Canada Study Permit renewal has the prerogative to request proof that the applicant candidate has achieved the requirements of the initial Canada Study Permit. A student may request a letter from the institution clarifying that the student has been actively pursuing the studies required in the conditional Letter of Acceptance.

STUDY IN CANADA: TRANSFER PROGRAMS

UNIVERSITY TRANSFER PROGRAMS IN CANADA

University Transfer Programs in Canada help students when they begin studying at one educational facility and finish their studies at another educational facility.

COLLEGE TO UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS

International students, starting their educational studies at a college and completing their studies at a university may constitute a strategic choice, due to the flexibility Canadian colleges offer:

  • tuition is more inexpensive than universities both in Canada and abroad;
  • class sizes are smaller than university class sizes;
  • entrance requirements are less restricted for grade-point average and pre-requisite courses; and
  • more flexible program start-dates.

Colleges also provide a more of a focus towards a ‘hands-on’ learning approach, allowing students to gain real-world experience to complement their academic program. University programs typically only provide intern and fellowship positions which are separate and apart from the everyday curriculum, separated sometimes by a year or more. For those international students who are looking to obtain multiple degrees, certificates, or diplomas, college attendance may be a more practical choice.

UNIVERSITY TO UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS

In some circumstances, international students may need-to or choose-to transfer from one university to another university. Some of these reasons may include:

  • student moving from one city to another,
  • student looking for a different program,
  • student finding a better fit for course-work, or
  • because direct admission competitive program was not possible at the first-year level due to over saturation.

Universities have different rules governing the transfer between universities. International students looking to transfer from one university to another university are advised to contact the universities in question to obtain transfer qualifications prior to initiating any transfer.

It is also important to note that when transferring either from a college program to a university program or from one university program to another university program, the receiving university requires at least two full years of the program to be completed on their campus before they will grant a degree from their university.

SPECIFIC PROVINCIAL PROGRAMS

Some provinces like British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, have created sophisticated and cooperative transfer systems to allow students to move between schools easily. The system primarily includes the major research universities, most private degree institutions, and some smaller colleges. There are other provinces with similar protocols and establishments in the works, but not finalized. For a complete listing for these participating provincial educational facilities, an international student is advised to contact the school they are applying for further details.

TRANSFER MODELS: 2+2 MODEL

This common model, involves students completing two years of full time study at a college program of study, followed by completing two years at a university program of study. The receiving school will not consume more than two years’ credit for transfer. This model was made popular by Canadian and American colleges in the 1960’s.

TRANSFER MODELS: 1+3 MODEL

This model involves students completing one year of full time study at a college program of study, followed by completing three years at a university program of study. The receiving school will not consume less than one years’ credit for transfer.

This model is most representative of students who were unable to obtain a placement in a full-time university program due to over saturation of the program, where the student wants, or needs to remain in a study capacity. This model may also represent situations where further upgrading was required to gain admittance into a university program of study.

Transfer Models: Block Transfers

Many receiving universities will acknowledge course credit in the form of a completed diploma or degree in the program of study. Acceptance in this fashion allows the university less discretion in choosing which courses to give credit.

In the case of a 1+3 Model, where a diploma or degree may not be possible, a receiving university may acknowledge course credit transcript from the initial facility’s administration, either in sealed envelope from the facility or by electronic submission from the initial facility.

COMMON SCENARIOS AND FAQS

I would like to immigrate to Canada; can a transfer program assist me?

It is possible a transfer program will assist you in your quest to immigrate to Canada. Many Canadian residency programs value an international student completion of a two-year degree from a Canadian college or from an international college.

Students have, in the past, completed a two-year Associate Degree or Diploma and begun working. Using a combined education and work experience that student is able to qualify for immigration.

It is possible for a student to then transfer to as a third-year university student and as a permanent resident. In this case, the student may be eligible for a substantial reduction of fees.

Admissions standards at my intended university are high. What is the advantage, if any, to seeking a second- or third-year entry to this school, from a college or another university with lower requirements?

Most receiving universities have considerably lower 2nd and 3rd year admission requirements. Additionally, when transferring from one Canadian facility to another, language test requirements are often waved due to the initial Canadian facility already admitted you on the foundation of your linguistic and academic proficiencies.

 

 

STUDY IN CANADA: PATHWAY PROGRAMS

International students who wish to study in Canada, may be required to first attend a prerequisite or foundation study program to prepare to achieve the circumstances of their main study program. Study programs for this purpose are known as pathway programs.

Pathway programs can frequently take the shape of a language study program. In this type of pathway program, a student may achieve the language requirements of their chief study program by concluding a language study program, rather than taking a recognized language test.

Pathway programs are comprehended to include two stages. The first stage is the prerequisite program, in the above situation, the language course — is commonly known as the ‘pathway program.’ The second stage, in the above situation, a college diploma program or a bachelor’s degree program— is commonly known as the ‘main (or chief) study program.’

TYPES OF PATHWAY PROGRAMS

If a potential international student receives a Letter of Acceptance to a Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI), the offer may be conditional upon the potential international student’s ability to prove his or her language ability in English or French. In a case such as this, the international student may first be required to attend a language course as a pathway program, prior to transferring into the main study program.

There are two types of pathway programs for language courses:

  • Standard: A student undertakes a language course while preparing for a recognized language test, such as IELTS or TOEFL, at the end. This type of program is known as a pathway program.
  • Seamless: Some receiving universities have provisions with language schools to accept students who have completed the language program, without the requirement of test results from a recognized language test. This type of program is known as a seamless pathway program.

The Letter of Acceptance may alternatively be provisional upon the potential international student accomplishing an academic upgrading program. This may be the case if the potential international student has not concluded the prerequisite study courses or subjects for the main study program, or if secondary school education in the student’s home country is not considered an equivalent education to Canadian secondary school education.

In a case such as this, a potential international student may be required to complete an academic upgrading program as a pathway program, before transferring into the main college or university study program.

Many Canadian colleges and universities and recognized private degree facilities have arrangements with language facilities and other educational institutions in order to guarantee a seamless transfer between the pathway program and the main study program.

Frequently, a pathway program is completed at a different educational facility than the main study program. Intermittently, the pathway program and the main study program take place at the same Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI).

PATHWAY PROGRAMS AND STUDY PERMITS

Pathway programs more than six months in length require a potential international student to apply for and obtain a Canada Study Permit. Pathway programs less than six months in length, a Canada Study Permit is not mandatory.

In either situation, a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) is still a requirement.

After the potential international student has successfully concluded the pathway program, he or she must apply for a new Canada Study Permit for the main study program.

All potential international students must apply for a new Canada Study Permit, irrespective of the length of the pathway program.

STUDY IN CANADA: PROVINCES AND LOCATIONS

Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories, six time-zones and many cities and towns. Canada’s economy supports an abundance of post-secondary educational facilities. Canada’s diverse educational facilities offer a potential international student an abundance of choice facilities from which they can earn their post-secondary education.

In comparison with other developed countries worldwide, earning a post-secondary education in Canada has an exclusive set of remunerations. Amidst quality education and advanced educational facilities, inexpensive tuition, safe towns and cities, employment opportunities during the study terms – during summer breaks and after the study period – Canada is a leading cultural opportunity for a potential international student. As a pathway to permanent immigration, the choice to pursue higher education in Canada can be a life-altering decision.

There is a great deal of defining factors to choose from when considering a study location in Canada:

  • Some perspective international students like to have a choice to attend a large college or university in a large city or the intimacy of a small-town university or college.
  • Some potential international students may need to factor in the cost of living or the cost of tuition into their educational locational pans.
  • Other perspective international students may need to consider if they are considering Canada as a post-graduation home and have a goal of becoming a permanent resident.
  • Or perhaps a potential international student has a goal of returning to their home country with the quality education they received in Canada, to make a considerable contribution to their own local economy or customs.

No matter the reason for a perspective international student to study in Canada, each Canadian province or territory has their own exclusive advantages for prospective international students.
