5 Reasons

to study in Canada

1. Top Notch Education

A degree from a Canadian university is sure to open doors. In fact, Canadian degrees are recognised around the world as being high-quality and rigorous. Because of their hands-on learning style, approachable teachers, and cultural openness, students acquire important critical thinking and analytical abilities that employers treasure.

2. Easier Access to Universities

In addition to the high-quality education, Canadian universities are also easier to get into than their counterparts in other countries. While the admissions requirements may vary depending on the institution, generally speaking, you’ll need a lower GPA (high school\college track record) and fewer entrance exams to be eligible for admission into a Canadian university.

3. Vibrant Campus Life

Canadian students are known for being welcoming and easy to get along with, so you’ll have no trouble making friends here. There’s always something going on campus too, whether it’s a club or society meeting, a sports event, or just hanging out in one of the many student lounges.

Canadian universities also offer a variety of social events throughout the year. So if you’re looking for a place to be welcomed with open arms, have some fun and meet new people, Canada is the perfect choice!

4. Post Graduate Opportunities

Once you’ve graduated from a Canadian university, you’ll be eligible to work in the country for up to three years on a post-graduation work permit. You can apply for a work permit after you receive your degree, as long as you studied full-time for at least 8 months. This is great news for those who want to gain some work experience after graduation or simply explore the country before moving on to their next adventure.

5. Quality of Life

The quality of life in Canada is excellent. Canadians enjoy a high standard of living, with access to top-quality healthcare, education and other basic needs. The country is also consistently ranked as one of the safest in the world, making it an ideal place for international students to live and study.

One of the great things about studying in Canada is that your degree will be transferable to the United States.
