Why Study in Canada
Canada is one of the preferred destinations for international students. Every year, over 300,000 new international students choose Canadian institutes for higher studies. There is no denying that Canadian institutes offer affordable tuition fees, flexibility to work during study, post-study work and immigration options. The quality of education is second to none, hence the trust of thousands who come here to study and often decide to make this country their permanent home. According to the Canadian Bureau for International Education’s (CBIE) 2018 International Student Survey, the overwhelming majority of students (93%) say they are satisfied with their educational experience
Canadian degrees are widely recognized as comparable to those from the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Canadian 17 Canadian universities are ranked in the top 500 of the QS World University Rankings 2020. The Times Higher Education World University Rankings and Shanghai Ranking’s Academic Ranking of World Universities have consistently placed Canadian institutes in Top 100.
Needless to say, Canadian institutes offer qualifications that are valued all around the world. Yet, the cost of living and tuition fees of international students are generally lower than in other countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. Canada offers a multicultural learning environment as almost all of the world’s ethnic groups are represented here.
