Have you ever wondered why people are flocking to this English-speaking, frigid North-American country? In fact, Canada has seen a steady increase in education tourism in the last few years. For the nine consecutive years, the UN survey claimed Canada to be among the top three places in the world to live. The country is a peace loving, friendly, caring and secure society. This constitutional monarchy believes in equality, diversity, and respect for all individuals, thanks to Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
Canada has also repeatedly claimed the top spots in categories like ‘the best place to live’ and ‘best place to study’. It also ranks high in entrepreneurship, employment, and tourism in various international surveys and standards assessments. Students who want overseas education recognise the value proposition it offers—high-quality institutions at an attractive price in a safe, beautiful, multicultural, progressive, and welcoming atmosphere. They lap up Canada’s excellent combined offer of high-quality education with opportunities for working both while and after studying and a chance to possibly immigrate after the completion of studies.
Higher education, which is also called postsecondary education in Canada, is available in both government-supported and private institutions. Postsecondary education refers to all kinds of formal education beyond secondary school, degree-granting education or not. These institutions offer degrees, diplomas, and certificate courses, depending on the length of the programme and the nature of the institute. In Canada, universities are no longer the sole degree-granting institutions. A recognised postsecondary institution, which can be both private and public, too can grant degrees, diplomas, and other credentials .
The country has reported public expenditure on post-secondary education of more than 30 billion dollars every year. Depending on the nature of the institution and the duration of the course, tertiary level education is available in both government and private institutions offering degrees, diploma, certificates and attestations. The placement figures and career opportunities for graduates from Canadian universities are remarkably high as a result Canadian schools are ranked amongst top ten institutions in the world which result in maximum students filling submissions to study in Canada during every intake. Students studying in Canada have great chances of becoming the most successful experts and are wanted by some of the top recruiters of the world.
There are 163 recognised public and private universities and 183 recognised public colleges and institutes in Canada. These include the ones granting applied and bachelor's degrees. In addition, there are 68 university level institutions and 51 college level institutions recognised as authorised institutions. These institutions, however, offer a few selected programmes that are approved in accordance with the provincially established quality assurance programmes.
Canadian universities, mostly, invite and accept applications individually, which can be found and completed online on their websites. However, some provinces have a centralised application system for universities, such as the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC). You can apply to multiple universities by means of a single application through these platforms. Deadlines for applications are generally later than other countries. Applications do not open until October and deadlines range from January to June. Many universities have multiple start dates too. While September is usually the start date, many universities start accepting applications in January or even May. You must track the important dates of individual universities to avoid losing out on options.
Students won’t see any shortage of shopping malls, art galleries, theaters, cafeterias, and exhibition hall in the urban areas. Canadian cities and towns are rich in open to public gardens, beaches, parks, sports and leisure facilities. Students can also indulge in a number of cultural festivals like the sounds of the Calgary Stampede, Montreal International Jazz Festival, enjoy an NHL match, and many others. One of the most important reasons why you should study in Canada is because of its welcoming and heartwarming environment. Canada is a peaceful country and is considered very safe for living. The crime rate in the country has declined over the years. Safety of students is something very important in the country. Most of the universities keep the campus security on during the whole day. All universities in Canada have 24×7 campus security which include security patrol cars and campus security office is always there to solve students’ grievances.Certain universities have also instigated the ‘Walk Safe’ programme, in which the students can easily get access to public conveyance during late night hours. The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) provide roadside assistanceif your vehicle breaks down while driving in Canada. All Cabs in Canada have assistance information found in the backseat. Also, as per United Nations, Canada is among the top 10 countries to live in the world..
