CANADA- Great opportunities for Indian Students
Canada has managed to successfully engender a system of education that is unique and rich in every which way and much sought after. What is more, most of the 95 odd universities in Canada find themselves regularly in the top ranking university charts of the world. All the universities here have, largely speaking, around 25,000 students thereby paving the way for a very healthy and happy mix of university enrollment versus population ratio, the best in the world.
World’s Top universities offering varied degrees
Canada has a happy mix of public funded as well as privately run universities. They offer graduate, post graduate and doctoral degrees. Colleges, on the other hand, provide diplomas in diverse subjects.
Some of the highly ranked Universities:
Carleton University, Dominican University College, University of British Columbia, University of New Brunswick, University of Winnipeg, University of Manitoba, Kings College University.
Some of the top colleges: Camosun College, George Brown College, Le Cordon Bleu etc.
Easier Accreditation vis-à-vis the USA
Far from being rigorous, its accreditation is open enough to accommodate students from not just diverse nationalities and backgrounds but also from different universities. There is a larger pool of opportunities.
This is not the case, for instance, in the USA, where there are national as well as international bodies scrutinizing every aspect of the student’s life.
Highly affordable world-class education in a strong economy
All Canadian universities provide this level of unmatched education at costs that are considerably lower than what it is in the USA and UK.
The Canadian economy and society have always been strong and hospitable enough to welcome and absorb students from different nationalities.
2017- Good news for Indian students
Some good news has come in for young Indians aiming to study in Canada.
Canada’s minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship John McCallum announced the 2017 immigration plan, the first of the Justin Trudeau government, after nationwide consultations. The government expects to welcome 300,000 new immigrants into Canada next year, the same figure as 2016.
In his statement introducing the immigration plan, McCallum said, “In 2017, economic immigration programs will see an overall increase of 7% over 2016. Immigrants with skills and experience are able to quickly contribute to the Canadian economy and society, improving life for the middle class as they help create jobs, spur innovation and strengthen communities.”
Canada’s new education policy in 2014 had marked India out as a priority country.
The numbers are growing. Between 2004-2005 and 2013-2014, the number of international students enrolled in Canadian universities almost doubled, from 66,000 to 124,000. Their population grew 88% between 2004-2005 and 2013-2014 even as the number of Canadian students grew by 22%.
Interesting fields of study
In 2013 (from the latest available data from Statistics Canada), the most popular fields of study for full-time international students from India were: architecture, engineering and related technologies (37%), business, management and public administration (22%), mathematics, computer and information sciences (12%) and physical and life sciences, and technologies (11%).
Amazing city life
According to The Economist 2015 list, three Canadian cities – Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary – were among the world’s top five most livable cities.
In the 2014 Mercer Quality of Living rankings, Vancouver is rated first among North American cities followed by Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal in second, third and fourth places, respectively.
Part Time Work – Easy permit
In Canada, once you have completed six months of studies, you can get a permit to work part-time, off-campus for up to 20 hours a week. During semester breaks you can work full-time.
While in school, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) allows students to work a maximum of 20 hours (part-time) per week and 40 hours (full-time) per week while on holidays. Your study permit automatically allows you to work while studying under the above guidelines. This greatly helps students to support their cost of living.
For foreign students who have recently graduated in Canada, It is possible to apply for both temporary (work and study) and permanent residence – this is called dual intent. Dual intent allows students to apply for permanent residence, while at the same time securing their temporary study permit. They should have a command on English or French and qualifying work experience.
For students, this makes Canada an even more attractive place to study.
