What makes Canada an attractive study-abroad destination?
Maple leaves, snowshoeing through mountains, friendly and warm people--these are just some of the visuals that Canada could bring to mind. Significantly, the country has also shot to the top of the list of attractive study-abroad destinations. Indian students, in particular, find Canada highly alluring for their study-abroad plans, just after USA and Australia.
Below are some of the reasons that make Canada a worthwhile destination for international students:
High quality of education
Excellence and trust are two words that are known to define the quality of Canadian education system. To cite some statistics: The QS World University Rankings 2019 features 26 of Canada’s universities, and THE World University Rankings 2019 lists 27 of them. That speak a lot about Canada’s quality of education, isn’t it?
Opportunity to earn while learning
An opportunity for a student to earn in a country miles away from home is a bonus. International students in Canada are provided an opportunity to work for over 20 hours every week during their semesters and full-time during the summer and winter breaks. What’s more, one need not undergo the hassles of applying for an additional work permit, and can do with the study permit to find a part-time job as an international student.
High quality of life
The Global Peace Index* (which measures the relative position of nations' and regions' peacefulness) listed Canada as the sixth peaceful country in the world in year 2018. An international student enjoys the same rights as their Canadian counterparts. Additionally, the country has 5 of the top 100 best student cities in the world, as per the World University Rankings. All these make Canada a fit destination to live and work.
Not to leave out Canada’s friendly and welcoming nature towards people coming from a myriad ethnic groups, with different cultures and lifestyle.
Research opportunities aplenty
Canadian education is strongly focused on on research and development. Students from the field of agriculture, medicine, telecommunication, environmental science and technology can derive huge benefits from Canadian government’s great support to research.
While there are many exciting things that make Canada a great destination for international students, it would also be worthwhile to know about the challenges (managing your living expenses, for instance) that you might face as an international student.
