Study in Canada
Canada, whose official motto is A Mari usque ad Mare, which translates as “From Sea to Sea", is the second-largest country on the globe, with a total area of 10 million square metres. Canada has a wide variety of stunning scenery, including towering mountains, massive glaciers, and dark, uninhabited woods. Studying in Canada means having access to many vibrant, multicultural cities as well as a wealth of natural beauty for skiing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Sounds pretty cool, eh?
IS CANADA A GOOD STUDY DESTINATION?
WHAT ARE THE POST-SECONDARY STUDY OPTIONS IN CANADA?
#1 Foundation programmes (6 months to 1 year)
The aim of a foundation programme is to prepare students for entry to bachelor's degrees at Canadian universities. They are the equivalent of Grade 12 qualification and are suited for SPM or IGCSE students.
#2 College or university diplomas (2 years)
Diploma programmes are mainly developed to meet the specific demands of technical and vocational careers. Additionally, co-op internships or other apprenticeship opportunities are usually included in diploma programmes.
#3 Associate degrees (2 years)
An Associate Degree in Canada is a 60-credit foundational undergraduate in some specific fields of study, such as science and arts. Unlike certificates and diplomas, associate degrees comprise a breadth of general academic subjects as well as a specialisation in an area of interest (similar to a major).
#4 Bachelor’s degrees (3 to 5 years)
A bachelor’s degree in Canada normally signifies completion of four years of full-time post-secondary education. Subject areas most often include traditional academic subjects in business, general sciences, engineering, the arts, or humanities. In this arrangement, students are expected to gain general and foundational knowledge over their first one or two years, and then specialise in a concentration called a major.
