Studying abroad and experiencing a different country, culture, climate and people helps us better understand the Global Village that we live in as global citizens. When you think of Canada you probably envision beavers, moose, the maple leaf, and the scarlet tunics of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. But there is more to this country than those iconic and somewhat stereotypical images.
It is often said that Canada epitomizes the world that we live in due to our image as peacemakers, humanitarians, diverse cultures and the spirit of freedom that we cherish. If that isn’t enough for you to consider pursuing your education in Canada, here are a just a few more things for you to think about:
Canada’s commitment to education
Canada is among the top three Organisations for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries in spending per capita on public postsecondary education. Collectively we place great value on education and fund and support it;
Canada is a cultural mosaic where diversity is celebrated, not simply tolerated. We are a multicultural society where almost all of the world’s ethnic groups are represented and live freely together;
Safe and great place to live
Canada is a safe, welcoming and friendly environment that enjoys a high quality of life. The United Nations consistently ranks Canada as one of the best places in the world to live and as an international student you will enjoy these same opportunities with an opportunity to immigrate after your studies without having to leave the country;
Depth and breadth of study
Canadian education system is a hybrid taking the best from the UK (depth of study) and American (breadth of study) systems and adding a Canadian twist (half of your program concentrates on depth while the other half offers breadth or the ability to combine two or more areas of passion). Couple this with the fact that you can obtain a quality education with tuition fees that are generally lower than other countries such as the United States or United Kingdom and you have a winning combination;
Wide range of choices
As the second largest country in the world in area and more than 100 universities from coast to coast to coast, there are program and university choices as varied as the Canadian landscape itself, which means there is something for everyone. Canada truly is a land of possibilities!
It is tough to only list five advantages to studying abroad in Canada when you are talking about a country as vast, diverse and varied as Canada.
