Pre-University

Pre-University and Secondary Education combined are sometimes referred to as K-12 (Kindergarten through Grade 12).

Post-Secondary Education in Canada:

Post-secondary education is offered by four types of educational institutions…

  • Universities: The reason behind the lower cost education in Canadian Universities is that most Canadian Universities are public funded and hence they can offer best quality education with the lower tuition fees than their counterparts in other countries. The courses and degrees from Undergraduate to Doctorate are offered by these universities at the most economic tuition fees.
  • University Colleges: University Colleges offer students a choice either academic oriented University Degree programs or the more practical-oriented College Diplomas and certificates. As a part of the Canadian college system, university colleges differ in terms of their strong student’s support services, small classes, and strong campus environment. You will be offered combined degree/diploma programs and university transfer programs.
  • Community Colleges & Technical Institutes: These colleges and institutes offer more vocational-related curricula with small classes and off-campus course offerings, wider laboratory space, and interactive method of teaching. The courses offered by these institutes are mainly employer-cantered preparing their training program largely based on the training needs of the business, industry and public sectors. The students are awarded diplomas and certificates rather than the degrees. However, a trend has started of granting degrees and applied degrees by these institutes.
  • Technical/Career College: These are privately owned and operated schools with the prime objective of imparting job market-oriented education for a short duration. Here, the focus is to sharpen the practical skills over a broad range of programs such as business, computers, and secretarial skills. Though these schools are privately owned, they need to have a provincial approval along with the regulation guidelines in order to maintain the standards and quality of education.

Scholarship

There are some organizations in Canada with scholarship programs but they are solely for the graduate students or professors studying or researching on a particular subject. Much less financial assistance is available for the international students but there are some schools offering scholarships according to the merits of the foreign students.
