Study in Canada

Study in Canada


Canada is a popular choice for international students willing to study in a different country. Universities in Canada offer world-class education with affordable tuition fees. Known for its kind nature, Canada is endlessly welcoming to international students. You will find high standards of research and teaching, as well as a great study experience in a beautiful and diverse country.

With high measurements in quality of life and education, Canada has been ranked by the UN as one of the best places to live in the world. It is a developed country with a high-income economy and successful government, making it a fantastic place to live and study in.

Wide range of programmes and courses to choose
Universities, colleges, and other postsecondary education institutions offer a range of programmes in a wide variety of purely academic and skill oriented professional and technical fields. Canadian universities offer more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate degree programmes, as well as professional degree programmes and certificate courses. Students can also choose to pursue various workshops, short courses, and upgrades for skilled workers and professionals side by side to their main degree programme. Some institutions offer specialized courses from a wide range of fields like fisheries, agriculture, apiary, paramedical technology, etc. However, fields such as telecommunications, medicine, agriculture, computer technology, business studies, and environmental science are the most sought after by Indian students.

Study options
There are three academic intakes at the institutions in Canada: fall, winter and summer. Fall lasts from September to December, winter lasts from January to April and summer lasts from May to August. Though fall is the primary intake in most colleges, some colleges do offer a winter intake.

International students are advised to apply at the earliest, as scholarships and admissions get more and more competitive closer to the deadline. A typical application deadline would be 6 to 9 months before your intended session starts, and it can vary depending on each department and the subject of choice.

Scholarship opportunities
The Canadian government recognizes that international students bring fresh ideas to Canada and contribute a great deal to various disciplines and the industry with the knowledge they bring from their home countries. This is the reason why the federal, provincial, and territorial governments of Canada as well as various public and private organisations, provide several scholarships and bursaries to deserving international scholars.

Safe and peaceful atmosphere
Canada is a relatively safe and peaceful country. The rate of violent crimes decreased for ten consecutive years in the period of 1993 to 2003. Firearms are strictly controlled and are generally not permitted, unlike the US. The Global Peace Index consistently ranks Canada among the top 10 safest countries to visit in the world. It is also relatively unaffected by natural disasters.

Multicultural experience
Canada is a country of immigrants and follows a policy of fostering multicultural diversity. The Canadian society comprises of almost all of the world's ethnic groups. You will easily find most ethnic foods and cultural activities. You will easily find informal clubs and associations representing various ethnicities. People of Canada are generally very open minded and respectful of different perspectives. Over the past century and a half, Canada has welcomed 15 million immigrants. Canada is also home to over one million aboriginal people, including First Nations, M├ętis, and Inuit communities.

Easy visa procedure 
One of the most exciting aspect while considering studying in Canada is that the process of acquiring a Canadian study visa is relatively relaxed. Students increasingly face issues and complain about the strict visa norm of the US. It has led to international students being diverted to other countries.

Student jobs during studies 
Graduating from a Canadian university or college will give you the opportunity to stay back and work for up to one year after the completion of their diploma or degree. During your studies, you can work on campus. A work permit is not needed in such cases. The government is working with various university bodies to formulate a regime that will allow off-campus employment too for international students.

Opportunity to get permanent residence 
One of the major advantages of making the decision to study in Canada is that graduates have access to a Post-Graduation Work Permit on completion of their studies in Canada. Post-Graduation Work Permits allow certain individuals who have studied in Canada to stay and work under an open work permit for up to three years, allowing them to enter the Canadian workforce and gain valuable Canadian work experience that may help them to immigrate permanently.
