Why choose to study MBA in Canada?
In recent years, Canadian universities have become popular for MBA programs. Let us look at some of the reasons that make Canada the preferred choice among Indian students:
Internationally Recognized Degrees
Degrees conferred by Canadian universities are globally recognized and highly valued by international employers. The University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, McGill University, University of Waterloo are among the top 50 engineering and technology institutes in the world.
Low Cost of Education and Living
In spite of being a developed nation, the cost of higher education in Canada is comparatively cheaper than its western counterparts. High-quality education at an affordable tuition fee gives Canada its unique advantage.
Low cost of living compared to US and UK, safety, stability, and a multicultural environment makes Canada an ideal destination
High Living Standards
Canada consistently ranks among the top 10 countries in the United Nations Quality of Life Index since 2004. Canada ranks above average in education and skills, jobs and earnings, health, safety, environmental quality, wealth and subjective well-being.
Immigration friendly policies
Canada is known to be the most immigration friendly nation in the world. Its policies are geared towards encouraging immigration from across the globe. This is one of the primary reasons to choose Canada as a study destination. It allows a post-study to stay back option of 3 years for students that can easily lead to immigration later.
Student Visa Requirement to Study in Canada
A Canadian student visa is referred to as a ‘Study Permit.’ The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website has updated information on the latest visa and immigration requirements. Students are advised to study the application requirements thoroughly before applying for a visa.
To apply for a Study Permit, a student should have received admission from a university that is listed under the Designated Learning Institutions (DLI) list authorized by IRCC.
Once a student has received admission, they can submit their visa applications at any VFS centers or file their application online via the IRCC website.
The visa application also requires the submission of visa documents such as passport sized photos, a valid passport, an admission letter from the university, financial and academic documents, test scores, fee receipt (mandatory), scholarship and work experience documents (if applicable) and a medical report.
Post Study Stay Back Options
A post-graduation work permit (PGWP) grants permission to international students to remain in Canada and work full time for up to three years after graduating from a Canadian post-secondary institution. The length of the work permit depends on the length of the program.
