Y-Axis helps students with the right counselling to help them achieve their dream of studying in Canada. We help them decide the right course and the right institution and guide them through the admission process.
Some other pertinent reasons for choosing Canada include:
Universities in Canada do not have a standardized tuition fees, in fact, it varies for each university. This depends on various factors- if you are a local or international student, the degree you want to do at the undergraduate or post-graduate level.
Cost of undergraduate courses
According to a report by Statistics Canada, the average fees for undergraduate students is CAD 29714. While humanities courses have lower tuition, while engineering and medicine courses are more expensive.
Cost of post-graduate courses
Again, the cost of postgraduate depends on the subject you want to study. The average tuition fees for these courses can be CAD 17,774. MBA courses are the most expensive compared to other courses.
The cost of studying in Canada will include other factors such as the cost of living and the student and visa application fees you will need to pay.
Canadian universities have three intakes in a year:
Intake 1: Fall Semester – Starts in the month of September. This is the primary intake for most universities.
Intake 2: Winter Semester – Starts in the month of January
Intake 3: Summer Semester – Usually starts from April/May. However this intake is available only for limited programs and colleges.
We would advise you to apply well in advance because admissions and scholarships get difficult when you apply closer to the deadline. It is better to apply 6 to 9 months before the academic session starts.
Work authorization for students
Canada provides work authorization for students who are above 18 years. International students can work on-campus or off-campus for 20 hours during the semester and full-time during their vacation breaks. They do not need a work permit to do this.
Documents required for CANADA Student Visa application:
The Canadian government offers options for international students to stay after their course and gain some work experience. The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) provides a Post-Graduate Work Permit Program. Under this program, international graduates can get an open work permit valid for three years. With this permit Canadian employers can work for any employer without the need of having a job offer before making an application.
