There are a number of options for education in Canada. Students may choose between several different study types, and also between how much time they want to spend studying. Universities and colleges in Canada offer:

  • Study Abroad Programs in Canada - provide students the opportunity to study in Canada for a semester or an academic year. Students choose whichever classes they like from different faculties and subjects.
  • Associate Degrees in Canada - awarded by community colleges in Canada for an education course usually lasting two years. An associate degree is equivalent to the first two years of a four-year bachelor degree at a college or university in Canada, and is often a starting point for further education. For example, students can receive a social science degree - a perfect fit for anyone who wants to work with people, and then go on to study within a more specific chosen field of study.
  • Bachelor's degrees in Canada - normally require 3-4 years of full-time study. Students at the baccalaureate or bachelor's level are known as undergraduates.
  • Master's degrees in Canada - typically require 2 years of study after successful completion of an honours baccalaureate.
  • Doctorate (PhD) in Canada -  usually runs for a minimum of 3 years and up to 5 years of study and research, as well as a dissertation.

Costs for education in Canada

In general, universities in Canada are cheaper than American universities. Tuition fees for international students vary for every school and depend on the program of study. Costs for tuition in Canada can range from about $5,000 to $15,000 (Canadian dollars) for undergraduate degrees. Community colleges are generally cheaper, while graduate degree programs are more expensive. Remember to also budget for books, equipment, student activities, food, housing, travel, local transportation, health care, clothing, laundry and entertainment.

An academic year in Canada

Universities in Canada usually run from early September until the end of April or early May. This study session is usually split into two terms - September to December and January to April. Various forms of summer studies may be offered between terms (May to August).

Languages in Canada

Canada has two official languages - English and French. Universities in Canada offer instruction in both languages. Students do not need to speak both to undertake education in Canada, however they have to show proficiency in one, depending on where they apply to study.

Most English universities in Canada require a score of at least 550-600 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or a score of 60 on the Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) Assessment. French-language Canadian universities usually assess applicants on a case-by-case basis. The registrar's office at each university can provide specific language requirements.

Size and character of universities in Canada

Each university in Canada has its own style. Students can study at a large, research-intensive campus in an urban centre, or a small liberal arts institution with a focus on undergraduate education where most of the students live in residence. Schools in Canada also play a vital part in their local communities - offering concerts and plays, sports and fitness facilities, lectures, museums, on-campus radio stations and art galleries.
