Canada Flag

Students choosing to study in Canada are looking for a high-quality education that is affordable and globally recognized. As a bilingual country, Canada is the perfect choice for students seeking an international experience.

Studying in Canada

Canada is home to some of the world’s top universities and research institutions. It is also a bilingual country, allowing international students to experience the benefits and depth of both an Anglophone and a Francophone culture in one place.

Much like in the United States, Canada has a flexible system of education where students have the opportunity to explore their interests before committing to a course of study. Students grow in supportive academic environments where professors are approachable and classrooms reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the country. In addition, a Canadian education can oftentimes be more affordable than studying in the United States, and in some cases French applicants pay lower fees than international students.
