Study in Canada | What Canada offers

Canada is one unique country in the world which offers long term post education employment (upto 3 years) and simultaneously process the application for immigration without the requirement of the student going back to his or her own country. The students choosing Canada get opportunity to recover their cost of education as well as the best chance of settling permanently in Canada. In fact, the entire immigration opportunity is totally tilted in favour of persons who take education in Canada. Some prominent provinces like Ontario do not even ask you to have job for applying for immigration if you have received master’s degree there. Such is the size of opportunity.

How to study in Canada | The complete guide

For Undergraduate admissions in Canada

Step 1: Choose an educational program/degree that you wish to study in Canada

Colleges in Canada generally provide Certificates and Diplomas courses in vocational skills. These colleges are generally under the regulatory control of the Provincial Governments. The courses offered are diverse. More than 250 different kinds of courses are available for study in Canada. Universities offer degree granting courses, generally 3-4 years for a Bachelor’s degree. The fields of study are diverse. They offer study in almost any subject one can think of.

Step 2: Select multiple universities which offer the program you wish to study in Canada

Once you have chosen a degree/diploma that you want to study in a canadian university, you must shortlist multiple universities that offer the program, and apply. Studying in Canada does require above-average qualifications i.e. GPA/Projects/IELTS Score/etc. Applying and getting an admit successfully can be risky. While mid-level and average universities in Canada have a 35-45% acceptance rate, the top universities like McGill, University of Toronto, etc. have an acceptance rate of 10-15%.

Hence, we advise students to apply to atleast 8 Canadian universities, to increase chances of admission. One must divide the chosen universities in the following categories:

Ambitious: Top universities where getting an admit would be a little difficult for you
Moderate: Universities where you are "moderately" sure that you will get an admit
Safe: Universities where you will surely get an admit

The ratio of Ambitious, Moderate and Safe depends on student to student.

While for admission to undergraduate courses, class 12 marks and proof of English proficiency is adequate. Applications must be filed well in time for consideration. One may also get conditional admissions based on class 11 score but class 12 score along with IELTS score would be required at the time of final admission.

Step 3: Give standardized tests required by Canadian universities for admission

For undergraduate programmes in Canada, generally IELTS tests are required as proof of English proficiency. In some very high end courses like degree in Computer Engineering from University of Toronto, SAT / ACT score may help but on record you only need CBSE /ISCE scores in addition to IELTS, for study in Canada. Admissions in Canadian colleges in generally done based on applications received before the cutoff date.

Step 4: File all your applications before the deadlines, pay the application fee

For Graduate admissions in Canada (MBA, Masters, Ph.D.)

Step 1: Selection of University and factors affecting the choice

Admissions in Graduate Schools require above-average qualifications i.e. GPA/Projects/IELTS Score/etc. Applying and getting an admit successfully can be risky. While mid-level and average universities in Canada have a 35-45% acceptance rate, the top universities like McGill, University of Toronto, etc. have an acceptance rate of 10-15%.

Hence, we advise students to apply to at least 8 Canadian universities, to increase chances of admission. One must divide the chosen universities in the following categories:

Ambitious: Top universities where getting an admit would be a little difficult for you Moderate: Universities where you are "moderately" sure that you will get an admit Safe: Universities where you will surely get an admit

The ratio of Ambitious, Moderate and Safe depends on student to student.

GMAT for MBA/Business degrees and the GRE for any other field - Masters/Ph.D. in engineering, arts, science, etc. Now, the GRE and the GMAT might not be mandatory for the university at you are applying to. Universities in Canada differ in this regard. One needs to check with the university about admission requirements.

Step 2: Select multiple universities which offer the program you wish to study in Canada

Once you have chosen a degree/diploma that you want to study in a canadian university, you must shortlist multiple universities that offer the program, and apply. Studying in Canada does require above-average qualifications i.e. GPA/Projects/IELTS Score/etc. Applying and getting an admit successfully can be risky.

One may also get conditional admissions based on class 11 score but class 12 score along with IELTS score would be required at the time of final admission.

Step 3: Prepare other application materials

Applying to a university in Canada requires a number of documents and essays. To study in Canada, one needs to understand that the Canadian education system is very different from the system here in India. The universities demand a number of documents, certificates and essays. You need to be ready with the following documents before applying to study abroad:

Proof of Education
School (University) official marksheets/transcripts for admission to undergraduate (graduate) programs in Canada.
If you already hold a degree/diploma, you have to find the Canadian equivalent of that degree/diploma. Study abroad consultants at Maven Edu will help you evaluate/convert your current degree(s) to their Canadian equivalents.

Statement of Purpose (SOP) / Personal Statement
The SOP or the Personal Statement is required by universities both for undergraduate and graduate programs. It is an essay in which a prospective student writes his/her reasons for choosing a program, studying in canada at that particular university, career choices, his/her academic background, etc. Basically, it an essay through which the student has to convince the university why he should be offered admission. Experts at Maven Education hand-hold students through SOP writing. The SOP/Personal-Statment has a huge weightage and one should seek advice/critique/opinion from study abroad consultants, faculty and friends/family.

Letters of Recommendation / Reference Letters
A Letters of Recommendation is a document which a superior/mentor (academic or industrial) writes for you. In this, the recommender writes about the character, skills, abilities, weaknesses, interests, etc. of the student. It is usually a one-page document.
Most universities don't require LOR's, but engineering and MBA courses make them mandatory and lay a lot of emphasis on them. One needs to submit 2 to 3 letters. The student only provides the e-mail of the recommenders to universities, and the recommender sends the LOR directly to the university.

Step 4: File all your applications before the deadlines

Before you think about studying in Canada, you need to decide in what semester you want to enroll. When one goes to study abroad, a student can choose the Fall or Spring semester for Canada. In Canada, the Fall semester starts in August-September every year, while the Spring semester starts in January-February.

Students generally choose the Fall semester to start their studies in canada. This is because most universities enroll about 80% students only for Fall admission. Further, if you start studying in the Fall semester, you complete your degree before the recruitment season. Otherwise, one can choose the Spring semester.

The Fall semester deadline is in December/January in Canada. Ex. for Fall 2018, you need to apply by 15 Dec 2017. The Spring semester deadline is in August/Sept in Canada. Ex. for Spring 2018, you need to apply by 15 Aug 2017.

All application material and the application fee needs to be submitted online before the university deadline. The deadline varies for each university, according to the Fall or Spring semester.

Step 5: After you get an admit(s), select one university where you wish to study in Canada

To select one university among many to study in canada, you need to consider:

Step 6: File for your Canadian student-visa

Congratulations! You are about to enter an exciting and more rewarding phase of life in Canada

The education system in Canada

Higher education in Canada, is education after finishing senior secondary school or after passing class 12 board exams (as is called in India). It is further divided in two parts:

Undergraduate Education in Canada (after Class 12 in Indian System)

If you want to study in Canada, you have the following 3 options. There are some courses of 1-2 years which yield a Certificate (ACS), there are other courses 2-3 years which yield a diploma (DCS) and yet another set of courses for which degrees are awarded. Bachelor’s degrees are awarded after 3-4 years of by Canadian universities. The diplomas and Certificates are awarded by colleges under the education department of the provinces in Canada.

Graduate Education in Canada (after a bachelor's degree)

These courses also called Masters courses are offered by Universities. Generally, they are 1-2 years. Students may also choose to take courses like B.Ed. which are undertaken after completing graduation. These programmes may be followed by PhD.

Getting a student visa, study permit for studying in canada

After one has shortlisted the course to be taken, chosen the College or University, complied with the admissions requirements and paid the fees, one needs a study permit for travel to Canada.

Normally permission to work upto 20 hours per week is part of your study permit, this work may be sufficient to meet your living expenses. The Government in Canada to be on safer side demands that the applicant deposit funds required to meet living expenditure in Canada for the first year. One has option of depositing the amount in a Canadian Bank or one must show financial tie up with an Indian bank to satisfy this condition.

Once the above condition is satisfied, there are a series of forms to be filled which we will help you fill and then one gets the Education permit or Visa.
