With world-class universities and courses in all subject areas, Canada boasts a long-standing reputation for academic excellence, drawing thousands of international students every year.
Canada issued nearly 450,000 study permits last year, up from 255,000 in 2020, hosting nearly 622,000 international students. There are many reasons why students prefer to study in Canada at the undergraduate and graduate levels. While the competitive tuition fee is the key motivator, international students choose Canadian institutions for the quality of their programmes.
Universities impart pragmatic and globally relevant skills and knowledge that enhance competitiveness of students and their ability to adapt in the workplaces of tomorrow. With a vast spectrum of options in Canada, students can choose from mainstream degree courses to specializations to vocational programmes – there is something to suit the preference and future goals of every student.
Canada also offers international students the options to stay after the completion of their courses and gain some work experience. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) provides a Post-Graduate Work Permit programme, offering international graduates an open work permit to gain skilled work experience, which is crucial to the success of their PR visa application. International students can also bring their spouse and children to Canada while on a study visa, if they fulfil the IRCC visa conditions.
