Why Study in Canada

Canada is the best place in the world to live

Ranked by the United Nations as the best place in the world to live, Canada offers abundant education opportunities and high quality of life. With a low incidence of violent crime and a comfortable population density, Canada provides international students a safe, happy environment to study & live in.
Representing almost all the world’s ethnic groups, Canada welcomes everyone. Ethnic foods and activities are plenty in Canada, and internationals students are encouraged to speak with their academic advisors to find out more about joining any number of ethnic clubs and associations.
Even better, tuition fees in Canada are some of the lowest in all the English-speaking countries.
International students enjoy the same freedoms as native Canadians – respect for human rights, equality and a stable and peaceful society.
With a wide range of quality programs for both degrees and diplomas in technical and professional careers, Canada provides over 106,000 international students each year with quality education in its many colleges and universities. Meeting people from all over the world, and from your own country, is easy.
Canada is a bilingual country; both English and French is spoken throughout the country. Teaching these languages is an important part of the Canadian education program, so you will be able to improve your fluency as you continue your studies.
Students from other countries who graduate from a Canadian college or university can work in Canada for up to one year after receiving their degree. During their studies, international students can work on campus without a work permit.
Integral to the Canadian education system, international students can take advantage of many opportunities to become part of furthering research in telecommunications, medicine, agriculture, computer technology and environmental science.
International students have the possibility of immigration to Canada after graduation. International students who have Canadian credentials and work experience can apply for permanent residency without having to leave Canada when their schooling is complete.
For international students who have never experienced all four seasons before, this is one of the most alluring reasons to attend college in Canada. Canada’s big city atmosphere and naturally preserved park systems offer something for everyone, including indoor and outdoor recreational activities at low or no cost.

Visa information

With effect from May 2009, The Canadian High Commission launched a new Visa Procedure called SPP (Students Partners Program). Under SPP, GIC (Guaranteed Investment Certificate) has become mandatory. GIC involves transferring living expenses to a Canadian bank before applying for a visa. This guarantees faster processing of visas.

International students graduating from a program of 2 years or more in length would be eligible for a 3-year work permit after graduation with no restrictions on the types of employment and no requirement for a job offer. The experience gained would provide them an opportunity to work in an international setting and at the same time allow them to earn the money invested.

Canada is encouraging International Students to stay back after their studies. The new Work Permit Program states that International students who have studied for 2 years can obtain an Open Work Permit with no restrictions on the type of employment and no requirements of a Job offer for up to 3 years. Students who study a one-year program are eligible for up to one year Work Permit
