Canada ranks 6th among the world’s most popular
destinations for international students, hosting around 240,000
international students at all levels of study combined, according
to Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE).
The Canadian tertiary education is an ideal mix between
Australian, UK and USA higher education. Students enrolled in
Canadian institutions can choose from a wide variety of three and
four-year study options as well as vocational training. Canadian
education is also recognized for its excellence, maintained through
the provincial governments which ensure that all universities
adhere to the code of academic standards. The Canadian higher
education system ranks 3rd in OECD’s 2012 top world
higher education systems report.
International students can save considerably by choosing to
study in Canada. All Canadian universities receive public funding
from their provincial governments, which allows for lower tuition
fees. Studying in Canada provides international students with
extensive work and career opportunities. Many institutions in
Canada offer a co-operative education program, which allows the
student to gain up to two years of relevant work experience.
