Canada is regarded as the popular destination for pursuing higher studies, job opportunities and settlement. Canada being one of the most livable countries in the world has world class institutions which are consistently ranked every year.
Even though Canada's quality of education and living standards are amongst the highest around the globe, the cost of living and tuition fees for international students are much lower as compared to other countries such as United Kingdom and United States.
Reducing the cost of education is a major concern for any international student. Canada allows international students to work part time while they complete their degree by allowing them to work 20 hours a week during the tenure of their study.
Canada gives students the advantage of career oriented internships and Co-op ( Co-operative Education ) programs.the course curriculum facilitates students to get opt for internships or Co-op programs, also known as work placement programs that helps them gain practical work experience in their chosen academic discipline, which can be either paid or unpaid depending on the company they are working for. This adds significant value to students' resumes and also help them to build industrial and business contracts globally for propelling their careers.
Students in Canada have the advantage of a post graduate work permit. The Post Graduate Work Permit Program (PGWPP) allows graduates from a participating Canadian post-secondary institution to gain relevant Canadian work experience of 1-3 years depending on the duration of their study in Canada. This work experience gained through the PGWPP helps graduates qualify for permanent residency in Canada.
