Guide to Study Abroad in Canada
1. Decide where you want to live
Being the world’s second largest country by landmass, Canada offers various landscapes, climates and cultures. If you are not a fan of the cold, you should head to the western portions of British Columbia, where there is a moderate oceanic climate. The cities of Victoria and Vancouver are the least frosty in the nation. Vancouver is also great for skiers — within a five hour-drive, you have access to six ski resorts.
2. Investigate your university choices
Canada is home to 92 universities and 175 community colleges. Altogether, they offer more than ten thousand different undergraduate and graduate programs. To date, 26 Canadian institutions made it into the annual Times Higher Education magazine’s World University Rankings.
3. Apply to different institutes
Applying to a Canadian university is very similar to applying to an American one, with emphasis being on your high school grades, personal essays and recommendation letters. It’s a good idea to apply to several schools, ranging from safety schools to matches and reaches.
4. Remember to get student visa
All international students enrolling in school in Canada need a student visa, which is known as a Canadian study permit. Contact our education counselors at MMS to find out more on how you can start applying to study abroad in Europe.
