Colleges

With lower fees and admission requirements and at the same time offering diploma, certificate and degree programs, Canadian colleges are an excellent option for international students wanting to study in Canada.

Degree

If you are interested in a degree program, many colleges offer 4 year degrees either from their institution or from a partner university.

For international students who are not able to gain admission to a Canadian university as a first year student (because admission can be highly  competitive ), a Canadian college with the right transfer program may allow students to ultimately obtain a degree from their desired university.

Diploma

If you would like to prepare for a specific career and study intensively one area, a diploma may be your best option.  Diplomas generally take 1 -2 years of study time and will focus on careers such as behavioural science, law clerk, accounts manager or visual merchandiser.  Some colleges offer up to 500 different career options.

Graduate Certificate

For people interested in working in Canada, having already completed their degree in their home country, colleges offer graduate certificate programs which are designed for students with previous education and/or work experience.  In as little as eight months you can gain valuable skills in your industry.
