The combination of Canada’s natural environment and its reputation for high-quality education are just a few of the things that attract tens of thousands of foreign students to Canada every year. Foreign students choose to study in Canada because of the Canadian degrees and diplomas are recognized throughout the world.
Students coming to Canada have over 90 degree granting universities, 175 community colleges, several private language schools and many corporate training facilities to choose from. Canada spends more per capita on its education system than any other country in the world. As a result, Canadian universities and colleges offer lower tuition rates for international students than their counterparts in other countries. The cost of study in Canada is considerably less than the USA, Australia and the United Kingdom. Canada is a world leader in software development, telecommunications, aerospace engineering, urban transport, biotechnology, mining technology and environmental industries.
The Canadian education system encompasses both publicly-funded and private schools. Education institutions are not officially ranked in Canada, as all Canadian institutions offer high quality programs. When choosing your school in Canada, consider the type, size and location of the institution. If you are interested in a particular area of study, investigate which schools have more to offer in that discipline.
