Once students have decided to study in Canada, the next step is choosing where to apply and here advisors of Study Links make a difference to counsel you to select right program. There are many great universities in Canada, and narrowing down your options can be daunting. There are a number of factors to take into consideration. While no rules exist for choosing a university in Canada but when we choose, we look into some important factors for our students to consider which include:

  • Primary language of the University: The most common languages spoken in Canada are English and French. Some schools use one or both as their main language. We make sure that that students are be able to study and communicate in the necessary one.
  • Type of degree: Are they planning on pursuing an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Ph.D.?
  • Size of University: Are students interested in a large campus or small ? Big lectures or small seminars ? Both have their own pros and cons, so it’s important to decide which our students are most comfortable with.
  • Opportunities for work experience & PR: Is there a cooperative (“co-op”) program, or something similar? Does program qualify for PG Work Permit or students can qualify for Permanent Residence if they complete their degree and gain Canadian experience on PG work permit.
  • Fees and financial aid: Studying Canada can be expensive. Does the university offer grants or scholarships to help our students to afford their studies?
  • Faculty and staff: Research the faculty in their program. Are there students particularly want to study with?
  • Accommodations for special needs — Is the university able to accommodate students with physical or learning disabilities?
