From accounting to zoology, Canadian universities and colleges offer something for everybody. In fact, there’s so much choice that it can be difficult to know where to start. The exciting thing about studying in Canada is that you don’t necessarily have to choose your subject immediately, leaving you time and space to select the perfect study program in Canada to meet your goals.
When applying to Canadian universities or colleges, candidates generally submit an application to the institution or department they are interested in. Program structure varies significantly between universities and colleges, so one of your first decisions will be whether you want to study at a college or at a university.
Note that the application process and the structure of study programs in Canada vary greatly between institutions. It is vital to consult your intended institution’s website directly – or even better, reach out to someone in the admissions department for a chat by email or phone – to find out the options and requirements in each program.
As a future international student, you’ll also need to verify that the university or college where you wish to study is a Designated Learning Institution (DLI), meaning it is approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students.
