Universities in Canada

Universities in Canada range in size from a few hundred to 35,000 students, and offer over 10,000 high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs. A Bachelors degree program in Canada usually lasts from 3 to 4 years, sometimes with an extra year for honors programs.

Masters degree programs in Canada generally run for 2 years, and doctorate research and study goes on for 4 to 5 years. Some universities also offer diploma and certificate education programs.

Besides offering education courses, universities in Canada usually have athletics, accommodation, counseling, scholarships, study-skills workshops, and career-placement services for its students.

Universities and university colleges in Canada are almost always publicly funded with varying tuition fees. The school year runs from September through May, and is divided into either semesters or trimesters. University education programs in Canada are usually offered in either French or English. Fluency in both languages is not necessary to attend university.

Degrees earned at universities in Canada have the same merit as those earned in the US or other commonwealth countries like Australia and the United Kingdom. It is often possible for a student to continue their education which was started in another country at a school in Canada, and vice versa, depending on the university.
