Why Study in Canada

  • Canada’s public system of richly funded research universities means the tuition fees international students pay are much less than for comparable universities in the U.S.A.
  • The quality of education and living standards in Canada are amongst the highest in the world
  • The United Nations consistently ranks Canada as one of the best places in the world to live. As an international student in Canada, you’ll enjoy all of the same freedoms which protect Canadians – respect for human rights, equality, and a stable and peaceful society.
  • Canada’s flexibility permits you to change or combine degrees, and work with study through “co-op” programs
  • Canada has a very multicultural society, with almost all of the world’s ethnic groups represented in Canada
  • Canada’s post-secondary campuses aren’t only wired with the latest in sophisticated technology, but countless other modern amenities as well. From Olympic-quality sports facilities to public concert halls and art galleries, Canada’s post-secondary campuses offer you enormous possibilities for learning and leisure
  • Since research is one of the key components of a Canadian post-secondary education, you’ll have ample opportunity to become a part of this vibrant aspect of education
