Canada is home to some of the world’s top universities. In fact, 30 Canadian institutions are counted among the best in the world, according to Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings 2020.
Canada has become an ideal place for higher education studies, sought by many prospective international students. Many of the Canadian universities are present in reputed international rankings and a recent educational strategy set by the Canadian Ministry of Education stresses on increasing the number of foreign students. This means that international students coming from any part of the globe are now more than welcome in Canada so it is no wonder it became so popular in this sense.

There are many different types of educational institutions in Canada.

Once you have chosen a place to study you will need to apply to that college or university. Every institution has different rules on how to apply.

Make sure you apply early for your course of study. University and college students should apply a year before they want to start their studies.

Contact the institution where you want to study to learn how to apply. They will give you the right application forms and be able to tell you about:

1. the cost of applying;
2. tuition fees;
3. health insurance;
4. rent and how much it will cost to live in Canada;
5. language tests.

Fill out the application form for the school or schools of your choice, and submit it according to the instructions provided. If the school admits you as a student, they will send you a letter of acceptance.

You need a letter of acceptance in order to apply for a Study Permit.
