Study in Canada
Did you know that the cost of living in Canada is lower than countries like Australia, England or the United States? Toronto is considered the most expensive city in Canada, yet it is still 25% less per year than life in London, England. As the second largest nation in the world Canada has a lot of outdoor activities to offer in many different climates. Education comes from many places, not just the classroom. Universities and Colleges around the country offer many clubs and campus activities that will help complete your education experience.
Canada is home to many of the highest-rated institutions and programs of higher learning in the world, but it is also a land of socio-cultural diversity with technological savvy. This diversity is reflected in higher education, where schools can vary in size and scope, with programs that appeal to traditional and cutting-edge fields alike.
According to the UN’s Human Development Index (HDI), a survey of such things as literacy, education, poverty and life expectancy used to measure a country’s well-being, Canada ranks in the top five countries in the world. Countries that rank high in this index are politically and economically safe and stable.
Canada is a safe place to live and study. Crime rates are very low and people are able to travel freely about the country without concern. Police are friendly and professional and have outstanding relationships with the communities they serve. Canada is a place with all its neighbours and they spend far more on health care.
The university year usually runs from September to May. Some universities are on a semester or trimester system, with all courses available even in the summer. There is no Canada-wide entrance test: each university sets its own admission standards and assesses the qualifications of each applicant individually. As Canada has two official languages – English and French – an international student can take a degree either at an English language or French language institution. Some universities offer instruction in both languages. However, students do not have to be fluent in both languages to attend a Canadian university. To qualify for a degree program at most English-speaking universities, students for whom English is not a first language must have passed an English examination test. The TOEFL is commonly accepted but Canadian universities often have their own tests for students or may accept other English examination tests such as the IELTS.
