7 reasons why you should consider studying in Canada


Mulling over getting a higher education in Canada? You’re on the right track
 
Everybody is talking about Canada right now, especially after the US, its closest neighbor, has become stricter when it comes to welcoming foreigners. For those who want to pursue higher education outside their home country, Canada is clearly a top choice among all First World countries that offer first-rate education. It’s also the best one for those whose dreams have been crumpled by the latest immigration crackdown in the States or those who don’t want to go beyond Northern American region.
 
Aside from being multi-cultural, diverse, and tolerant (which everyone knows and love) here are the other things that may convince you that Canada is the one for you:
  1. Canada wants you. Canada has never been conservative in blatantly proclaiming that they need foreigners to help them fill industry-crucial jobs. Among the route they made more accessible in the past few years is the Student Visa route, in which they made it more possible for students to get a work visa or residency permit upon completing a degree in any Canadian university. 
 
  1. Five of its cities are the best for most international students. The latest QS Best Student Cities Index proves it.  For foreign students, Montreal is the most loved city among all 125 cities in the world, whilst Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, and Quebec also made the list. How did these beautiful Canadian cities qualify? Well, a city must have at least over 250,000 residents and must be home to at least two universities featured in the most recent QS World University Rankings.
 
  1. It’s not all about English. Not all citizens find English as a language that’s very easy to learn. For those who find Romance languages, particularly French, easier to master, then this makes more sense to choose Canada. Quebec, which is predominantly Francophone, is home to several internationally ranked universities. Among which are Université de Montréal, Université du Québec à Montréal, and École Polytechnique de Montréal.
 
  1. Tuition fees here are cheaper. The great thing about world-class unis in Canada is that they’re a lot cheaper compared to those in the US, the UK, and Australia. Undergraduate tuition for international students ranges from about US$11,000 to US$14,300 ($15,000 to $19,000 Canadian dollars) per year (in Australia, the UK, and the US, university tuition fee typically starts at US$19,000) There was even a point in 2013 when over 8,000 American students flocked north because education here is way cheaper than in their home country.
 
  1. There’s a lot of options. Canada isn’t just a country to learn a new language or some foreign studies-related degree. Currently, there are over 15,000 undergraduate and graduate programs available in all universities across the country. Thus, whether you like to be a doctor, a tech company owner, an artist, an engineer, an actor, or an educator someday, there’s always a Canadian university that can help you fulfill this dream. 
 
  1. Sure-fire job after graduation. StatsCan said that students no longer have to worry about having a job right after graduation. In 2016, for instance, the country’s chief survey agency said that over 1.4 million jobs for university students had been created since 2008, almost three times as many new jobs for college and trades graduates combined. In 2014, in addition, local universities spent a total of $35 billion in direct expenditures, providing employment to 250,000 people. This means that the academe route is really plausible for newly graduates, too. In addition, foreigh students are eligible for the Post-Graduation Work permit for a period of up to 3 years and may even be eligible for the Canadian Experience Visa for permanent residence in Canada, while they work and study in Canada.
 
  1. Opportunity for enterprising after study. Over 1,500 companies and state-funded research labs are located in 26 research and technology parks owned by local universities.  Also, a total of 32 universities are members of Canadian Association of Business Incubators (CABI), an organisation focused on supporting the growth of early-age and startup businesses. This means that newly graduates will surely have their university’s support if they plan to put up a business or be part of one.
 
Canada is one of the least corrupt nations in the world and this can mean only one thing: that the country is capable of nurturing not only its people but also the foreigners who choose to call it their second home. And everyone knows that security that goes beyond being able to walk safely on the streets is something that entices everyone, most especially the students.
