Why Study in Canada?

The latest studies have proven that Canada is becoming one of the favorite study destinations for international students. It is also famous for offering the best Education degree. Promising a safe stay for its students, there are other reasons as to why students can plan to study in Canada:

  • Visa Policy : The Canadian visa application process is relatively simpler and shorter which encourages international students to study in Canada. In addition, Canadian universities and colleges allow international students to stay back in Canada for employment opportunities. The Post-Graduation Work Permit permits international students to stay up to three years after graduating from a post-secondary Canadian institution, depending on their course duration. On the other hand, as an F-1 visa holder, international students are allowed to stay back to complete up to one year of temporary employment directly related to their major field of study. During Optional Practical Training (OPT), international students can get a one-year work and stay-back permit after completion of a degree in the USA.
  • Tuition-free university education : There is low tuition fee. Students have to pay a nominal fee of 1035 USD per semester, which covers the administrative costs. 
  • A Wide array of courses : There are more than 10000 international programs along with 10,000 Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D. degree programs to choose from.
  • World-class universities : There are above 96 institutions of higher education.
  • Dual Education System : Allows students to pursue an apprenticeship in a company along with a vocational course at a vocational school. International students can earn up to 17-23 USD per hour
  • Economical cost of living :  The cost of living in Canada amounts to 110 USD – 1,030 USD per month, which is quite low as compared to its European counterparts.
  • Financial Aid and Scholarships : Plenty of scholarships are offered to both undergraduate and postgraduate students in Canada by Canadian universities. Several kinds of scholarships, grants and bursaries are available for international students who are planning to study in Canada, at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels.

    • IDRC Research Awards
  • A Massive Job market for graduates : One of the advantages Canadian international students have over international students studying in the US is that of Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP). The post-graduation work permit is an integral part of Canada’s immigration system which allows overseas students to work in Canada for up to 3 years after graduation. It is also a gateway to permanent residence and eventually citizenship. Jobs like program analyst, teacher, financial manager, pharmacist, nurse practitioner, and construction manager are some of the most coveted occupations in Canada.
  • Standard of Living : According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Better Life Index, Canada performs exceptionally well in various measures of well-being as compared to other countries.
    • The average household net adjusted disposable income per capita is $30,854 per year, which is lower than the OECD average of $33,604 a year.
    • When we talk about employment, 73% of people between the ages of 15 to 64 have a paid job, above the OECD employment average of 68%. Around 76% of men are in paid jobs, compared with 71% of women.
    • Quality education and work-related skills are prerequisites for finding work in Canada. Around 91% of adults aged between 25-64 have completed upper secondary education. The stats are well above the OECD average of 78%.
    • In terms of health, life expectancy at birth in Canada is 82 years, which is two years higher than the OECD average of 80 years. Life expectancy for women is 84 years, whereas, it is 80 for men.

    Canadians are way more satisfied with their lives than the OECD average. On a scale from 0 to 10, Canadians rate their general satisfaction with life a 7.4 on average, higher than the OECD average of 6.5.

    With the low amount of tuition fees, high standard of living and innumerable career opportunities, it is safe to assume that Canada has proven itself to be one of the most coveted countries for international students.
