Canada has become a booming hub for international students whose dreams include remaining in the country in which they complete their studies. No longer an overlooked global destination to earn a degree, Canada also offers a direct path to permanent citizenship – an option many international students seek. Canada has ranked as one of the top ten places to live in the world for over twenty years, and boasts an education system ranked among the best.
Canada is an increasingly popular option for students who seek and require a less expensive alternative to studying internationally than they might find in the US. Canadian universities are now providing equally prestigious degrees as those in the US, often at a more affordable cost.
Studying in Canada means a few required documents to gain admission. Documents may differ depending on the University.
International students will have to meet the costs of studies and living in Canada. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) requires some proof that you has sufficient money and funds available. Your college provides cost of living estimate, the immigration officer will follow it. If your college doesn’t provide it, you will be required to show evidence of $10,000 for 12 months living expenses for a student.
Additional $4,000 will be required for spouse and another $3,000 for each dependent. This amount includes accommodation, food, medical insurance, transportation, books, and clothing. Tuition and other fees are not included in this amount.
