Canada has so much to offer!
Why study in Canada?
Studying in Canada is a dream come true for everyone, as the country is ranked as the best place to live in the world. Canada is a very attractive destination for students worldwide because of its access to education, high life expectancy, and low crime rates. Canada is known for its high-quality education and stringent admissions standards. A Canadian diploma or degree is respected all over the world.
Each year, Canada welcomes more than 200,000 researchers and students. Making the decision was not difficult for the majority of these students. Aside from the potential of receiving a government scholarship or other incentives, there are other compelling reasons for students to pursue their education in Canada.
- Canada’s universities are known for their academic excellence and are consistently ranked among the best worldwide.
- In English-speaking countries, Canadian tuition fees are one of the lowest.
- More than 5,000 worldwide cooperation agreements are linked to the country’s universities. Not surprising that more than 90% of Canadian graduates find work within six months of graduation, thanks to the country’s emphasis on industry-specific applied research.
- High academic rankings and a friendly reputation are impressive, but it is hard to beat the United Nations’ top ranking as one of the world’s best places to live for the past eight years.
- Canada leads the world in computing and information technology, notably in telecommunications, medical devices, aerospace engineering, lasers, biotechnology, ocean and environmental research, and a variety of other fields.
- Canada was the first country in the world to connect its schools and libraries to the internet, thanks to its pioneering School Net program.

Planning & Housing
- Student Residence – Dormitories & Townhouses: Some universities provide student residence on-campus or nearby the campus. Dormitories are normally larger buildings housing many students, while townhouses are detached, housing usually three to six students.
- Off-Campus Shared Apartment or Condominium: Off-campus shared accommodation provides students with a single room in a living space. There can be one or more other roommates. Like townhomes, they generally contain a single occupancy bedroom or living space. They have a shared kitchen, bathroom, dining, and living room area.
- Host Family/homestay:Living with a host family can provide you with a feel of home and security as you begin with your new life in Canada. Host families usually provide a private, single-occupancy room, and serve one – three meals per day and internet access.
- Furnished or Unfurnished Apartment Rentals: There are many secure ways to look for a temporary furnished apartment rental earlier than your arrival in Canada by using websites such as Airbnb, Craigslist, HouseTrip or Wimdu. These apartments are usually furnished private rentals. Be sure to look at the reviews of each rental and check the feedback from other guests who have previously stayed there.
