Study in Canada?
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. The 1998 Gourman Report, an
independent USA report, scored 18 Canadian electrical
engineering programs in the top 40 of such programs in
North America. Canadian work experience is highly
desirable by multi-national companies who actively
recruit on Canadian campuses.
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
Canada is probably best known for the stunning beauty
of its natural environment. This is with good reason.
From coast to coast, Canada is a panorama of gorgeous
mountains, lakes, rivers, forests, plains, and more.
As a result, the country has an amazing range of
outdoor activities that could keep even the most avid
enthusiast satisfied for years. With that comes an
absorbing history and the cultural diversity of a
modern, eclectic nation. With roots in European
traditions, particularly the French and British, the
heritage in many cities is unmistakable. Add to that
the influence of the United States and the many
immigrants who have settled there, and Canada is a
fascinating and fun mix.
Canadians place great importance on learning, and have
developed a first-rate education system with high
standards. The country spends more on education (as a
percentage of GDP) compared to the OECD average, and
is the second highest among G-8 countries.
Canadian teenagers consistently rank among the best in
the world on international tests of reading, science
and math - a testament to the outstanding quality of
Canadian schools. A Canadian degree, diploma or
certificate is well-regarded in business, government
and academic circles around the globe.
