When it comes to upper level education, few countries have as much to offer as Canada. On the whole, the post secondary educations across the country are widely recognized as providing a quality, high level education experience for students at both the international and domestic levels. There are people with Canadian degrees doing everything from engineering new military technology at CFB in Kingston Ontario to designing house plans which produce greener living. In this section of our site, we will be posting articles designed to help both current and potential international students when it comes to achieving an education at the post secondary level at Canadian institutions.
Just what types of articles can you expect in this section? Well, to start off with, you will find that we take an honest approach in the information that we post here in regards to English language school. We are not looking to make post secondary education look easy or as less of a commitment than it is, and that will come through in the information we provide. Part of the reward at the completion of upper level education is that students tend to have an enhanced ability to look at the big picture rather than short term goals, and it helps to get this started right off the bat.
Why do we put this in these terms? Many international students will find that they are charged more than students living in Windsor homes when it comes to attending Canada's post secondary education. We will take a look at why this is and also help to put it into perspective; for the most part, international students will find that Canadian education is still more affordable than what is offered in their own countries.
We also want to take a look at the different culture levels international students may find at post secondary schools across the nation. Some areas are more likely to recruit a greater concentration of international students from one country than another, and we will take a look at why this is. Having a degree of familiarity can really help an international student, as far as achieving the best possible educational experience is concerned. You don't have to be traveling from a tropical Troncones home to experience culture shock in Canada.
This section of our site will include articles on the different course requirements that may apply to international students that are not necessarily required for those who are considered domestic. For example, many Canadian institutions require a certain amount of Canadian content in an Arts degrees, something international students may not be familiar with. In addition, some institutions will exempt their international students from these requirements. On the other hand, international students may be required to take courses that Canadian students don't have to take in order to enhance their educational opportunities; ESL courses are a good example of that. We will take a look at how this type of course can really help an international student not only at school but in the future as well. And if a student wants to fast-track this step, where they can take these courses as part of distance education from Ontario at home before arriving.
Finally, we will explore a few different options that international students have, as far as achieving their post secondary educations in Canada go. An inability to travel, or a lack of living funds, may not necessarily preclude you from achieving the Canadian education that you want. Most of Canada's universities offer alternative forms of education that can be accessed from anywhere on the globe. We will take a look at the advantages of this kind of system.
