Study in Canada?
Canada, also referred to as the ‘Great White North’ (I’ll explain in a bit), is opening its arms wide for immigrants and permanent residencies. The Canada Immigration Levels Plan: 2019-2021 has an intention to admit more than a million new permanent residents over the next 3 years! That’s reason enough to go and study there, and the School of International Studies (SOIS) can help you do that.
There are of course many other reasons to study in Canada but first let’s cover the nickname ‘Great White North’. The reason is actually quite simple. ‘Great’ because it is the 2nd largest country in the world. ‘White’ because there’s a lot of pure white snow you can have fun in for almost half the year. ‘North’ because it’s in the Northern hemisphere. That’s it; the ‘Great White North’.
Let’s get back to the numerous reasons to go study in Canada. French might be the official language there, but so is English, which makes it very accessible to prospective students from around the world. You will be in an environment where your English proficiency will undoubtedly increase. That’s a huge asset to have in order to work anywhere in the world. And in case you are from Punjab, India, you’ll be happy to know that Punjabi is the 3rd language in Canada’s Parliament. That’s closely followed by Hindi being the fastest growing immigrant languages. So if you are an Indian, you won’t feel too far from home in Canada.
27 of Canada’s best known universities rate in the top close to 1250 higher educational institutes in the world. That’s not even taking colleges into consideration. Whatever you choose to study, you can be sure you’ll get an excellent education based on independent and flexible programs which encourage the students to think, research, apply and get ready for the global job market. In fact, 18 Canadian universities are among the best in the world as far as Graduate Employability is concerned, with many others producing highly employable graduates.
Everyone would love to attain an overseas, world-wide recognized education at a reasonable cost. That is one of the many reasons international students wish to go there. The cost of living and getting an education in Canada is much lower than other major education destinations like the U.K., the U.S. and Australia. Consider this: you would pay anywhere from CAD $30,000 – CAD $50,000 per year for an MBA at the top universities in Canada. You would pay anywhere from $80,000 – $100,000 per year in the U.S. for the same.
For students who might never have travelled the world or studied anywhere else other than their native countries, it can be difficult to make friends and easy to feel lonely in a new country. If Canada is your educational destination of choice, you’ll be happy to know it has been ranked in the Top Ten Friendliest countries in the world! It is also one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world.
Canada, the Great White North is definitely a study destination to consider. With everything to offer, and at a very reasonable cost, why would you not want to get an international degree from there.
