Which university should they study at? What is the duration of the course? And most importantly what are the career opportunities available after I finish my studies abroad? These are only a few crucial questions that must be considered when planning education abroad. Furthermore, the cost of living and immigration laws and regulations also play a key role while making this decision. One country that checks all these boxes in terms of providing easy streamlined processes is Canada, with approximately 2,00,000 Indian students moving there every year to pursue their higher education.
Over the years Canada has become an educational hub not only because of the myriad of educational courses that Canadian universities offer but also due to the quality of life and career opportunities available after finishing education. Here are some of the reasons why Canada is an exceptional educational destination:
Simple PR process: Perhaps the most inviting feature of pursuing education in Canada is the permanent residence (PR) visa, which allows you to work and live in Canada after you finish your education. It can take as little as 45 days to obtain a PR visa and the process is much simpler compared to other countries. Moreover, you can also apply for a post-graduation work permit (PGWP) after finishing your education. The government actively encourages professionals from all over the world to work and reside in Canada!
Quality of education: The biggest advantage of pursuing further studies in Canada is the quality of education offered. Canada is home to many prestigious universities such as the University of Toronto and the University of British Colombia which focus on providing high-quality education with an intensive curriculum. Moreover, there are several postgraduate and advanced diploma courses available for those who want to pursue short-term courses.
Job opportunities: Most students are allowed to work on or off campus while they continue their education, and can explore job opportunities all over the world after finishing their education since degrees and certifications from Canadian institutes are valued and accepted globally.
A melting pot of cultures: Given its popularity among international students, Canada also boasts a rich and diverse lifestyle and culture. Although India is a beautiful and diverse country in itself, Canada provides exposure to internal cultures and traditions unlike any other. Moreover, it is also considered to be one of the safest countries for international students.
