Canada is the world's second largest country, spanning across six time zones. Canada has 10 provinces and three territories, each with its own capital city. Canada has two official languages — English and French. English is the primary language for approximately three-quarters of the population, with French the primary language for the remainder.
Canadians place a premium on education and demand first -rate schools. A degree from a Canadian university is recognized world-wide and as a result, international students who graduate from Canadian universities enjoy successful and prosperous careers.
In Canada there is no national or federal education system and as per the constitution it is under the complete jurisdiction of the provinces and territories. This means there are significant differences between the education systems of the different provinces. However, standards across the country are uniformly high.
Canadian universities are largely public funded, and, as a result, offer consistently high quality education at lower tuition rates for international students than their counterparts in competing countries. They offer a broad range of courses and degrees from undergraduate to doctorate and also certificate and professional degrees.
University Colleges are part of the Canadian university system; university colleges offer students a choice of either academic oriented university degree programmes or the more practical-oriented college diplomas and certificates.
Community Colleges and Technical Institutes colleges offer more vocational-related curricula, with small classes, off-campus course offerings, a greater ratio of laboratory space to class room space, and an interactive teaching style.
