Canada is one of the best places in the world to study for many and is consistently ranked one of the best countries in the world. Canada has a number of factors which help it to become such a popular destination such as adventure, culture, resources, and general quality of life.
Ways to help international students build a life in Canada: There are number of programs which can help international students build and grow their life in Canada after they graduate as well. Programs such as the Federal Skilled Workers Program, the Provincial Nominee Program, or even Express Entry. The Post-Graduate Work Permit can provide students a work permit of up to 3 years after they graduate from their program. The Post Graduate Work Permit is decided by the Government of Canada and all students are eligible to apply once they graduate for a Canadian institution, meaning that students can take one of Focus College’s HND programs (currently in Business, Computer Science, and shortly Travel & Tourism) and then transfer to any of our progression partners to earn your degree.
Canada’s culture is welcoming to international students and those with different backgrounds: Canada will admit nearly 1 million immigrants over the next 3 years and has increased the number of immigrants (and refugees) recently, and plans to continue increasing the numbers moving forwards. Canada prides itself on being a “cultural mixing pot” and provides a diverse range of cultural centres for those of all different cultures. And while Canada wishes for immigrants to come in with an open mind and try assimilating into the country, we know that people holding their cultures with them is what helps to make this country so great.
Canada’s education has gotten such a good reputation for reasons such as its affordability, it’s qualifications being valued around he world, and overall excellent education: Canada’s quality of education is among the highest in the world, but the cost of its education is generally lower than other countries with similar programs. Did you know Focus College has the same tuition rates for international students as it does local students? Canada has extremely high academic standards and all schools must follow government rules to ensure that students are receiving the most up to date and best information possible. Did you know that Focus College’s HND programs are actually regulated by two governments? Both the Scottish government (the SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority)) and the Canadian Government help to regulate our HND programs. And lastly, did you know Canada’s education is some of the best in the world through its teachers, curriculum, and infrastructure.
