EduCanada is one of the exhibitors at the International Studies Forum in Brussels. In 2016 there were 412,410 international students in Canada pursuing a premier education, with access to global career opportunities and an exciting cross-cultural experience. Choose from among Canada’s top-ranked colleges, polytechnics and universities for the highest quality education and return home with a globally recognized degree or diploma.
Canada’s 96 publicly funded universities offer a high quality education. You will find a vast selection of undergraduate and postgraduate programs to choose from, as well as professional designations, certificate and diploma courses, and short, career-focused programs. Canadian schools also boast cutting edge technology and research labs as well as numerous opportunities for cooperative education and internships.
If you’re looking for programs that prepare you directly for the job market, Canada’s colleges and polytechnics are an excellent choice. Over 8,000 programs at 135 public institutions provide recognized credentials, including certificates, diplomas, university transfer programs, academic and applied degrees, and postgraduate diplomas. Programs are taught by highly experienced faculty and are available with varying lengths of study, from a few months to four years. Applied programs are designed in collaboration with potential employers that offer work placements. Some colleges have transfer agreements with universities and can be an alternate pathway to top-ranking Canadian universities.
As an officially bilingual country, Canada is a world-leader in second language training. Whatever your goal – academic upgrading, entry to further study, preparation for language proficiency tests, business applications, or personal use and enjoyment – you’ll find a program to suit your needs. Language studies are also often seen as a pathway to further postsecondary education opportunities in Canada. English and French second language programs are offered at elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. A number of private language schools and colleges also offer programs exclusively to international students and immigrants.
EduCanada will participate at the conference at 4 pm on “Your Gap Year / Your studies in Canada”, see the programme here for the content.
