Study in Canada
treasures its international students as they believe that
international students bring with them their diverse and rich
culture, knowledge as well as skills and are thus an asset to
the country rather than a liability. Thousands of students from
around the world move to Canada for pursuing their studies.
SYSTEM IN CANADA:
It is mandatory
for one to complete primary and secondary education before
seeking admission to any of the universities/colleges for higher
education i.e. for undergraduate and post-graduate programs.
FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:
students are warmly welcomed by most Canadian families and that
is the reason home stays are so popular in Canada. In home stays
an international student stays with a native Canadian family
during the period of the studentís academic year and caters for
most of the studentís needs and requirements. Cost of home stays
varies depending on the location and services provided by the
families. Average cost has been calculated to be from $400-$800
per month. Shared accommodations (which are also very common),
are apartments taken on rent by a few students and usually cost
around $250-$350 per month. However, one must be extremely
careful about the place and services before choosing an
apartment. Hostels facilities for students are available too.
education in Canada can cost one in the range of $5,573-$17,667
while the tuition fees for graduates can range from
$1,896-$33,667 per academic year. The cost of living is an
add-on and some international students might feel the need of
some sort of financial assistance. The Canadian institutions
thus offer various scholarships as well as awards to foreign
students. Students with excellent academic results can sit back
freely and get their education funded by the institutes.
