Study in Canada

canada flagCanadians place great importance on learning, and have developed one of the world’s finest education system with high standards. The country spends more on education (as a percentage of GDP) as compared to the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) average, and is the second highest among G-8 countries.

Why Study in Canada?

The Canadian education system is structured based on the total governance of each state and territories without any Federal regulations. While this may sound a bit difficult to digest for some, it actually served an excellent purpose in creating a diverse educational system and helped further diverse curricula. Colleges and Universities are free to design programs and courses to fit the particular areas of emphasis they believe need to be addressed. These institutions are usually divided to community colleges, which primarily serve as launch pads for transfer to university levels and at the same time are more involved with vocational oriented programs, University colleges and Universities.

Canada is home to more than 175,000 international students every year, and is consistently becoming a more popular destination. With a very large similarity with the US system, it is also proving to be good substitute for people to expand their options of studying abroad. Also, more and more American students are heading to Canada after high school. The main reason for this trend is the fact that Canadian universities offer a quality education for a fraction of the cost of a college degree in the United States.

Quality of Education

All public and private recognized and authorized post-secondary institutions in Canada have been given the authority to grant academic credentials by their provincial or territorial governments, through charters or legislation that ensures or enables mechanisms for institutional and program quality. At the provincial and national levels, Canadian professional-regulatory bodies (for example, in the fields of nursing, architecture, and engineering) participate in the establishment and review of postsecondary curriculum standards. Accreditation reviews are conducted through analysis of reports and on-site visits.

There are a number of organizations in Canada that promote quality and the use of high academic standards in post-secondary programs such as the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) and the Association of Accrediting Agencies of Canada (AAAC). Higher education degrees from Canada are accepted and respected worldwide.

Cost of Education

The cost of education in Canada is considered to be one of the lowest as compared to other countries like USA, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. The average tuition fee for an undergraduate program is in the range of CDN$ 11,500- 22,000. Accommodation for students are available on campus in the range of CDN$3000-7500 per year, home stay families- in the range of CDN$ 400-800 per month, or off campus apartments on rent in the range of CDN$ 250-700 per month. Also post study employment opportunities for students are better and easier.

Diversity

Canada is a bi-lingual nation and this has made it an excellent destination for lot of people from the Anglophone and Francophone countries. It offers a diversified environment and possibilities for others to immerse themselves in different cultures thus enhancing one's options to options to internationalize one's potential. Canada's ability to host different immigrant populations and students has given it a boost on an ideal destination.

Living expenses

Living expenses include costs for accommodation, health insurance, food, laundry, utility bills, clothing, social trips, traveling and entertainment. Estimated living expenses: CAD 4800 – 9600 per year.
