Are Canadian Universities the Best Choice for Higher Education?

When it comes to higher education, Canada is a great option for students looking for a quality education. US News ranks Canada's top 10 universities globally, and the application process is simpler than the hypercompetitive challenge of elite college admissions in the United States. Rahul Kumar, Associate Director for Canada at IDP Education (India, Bangladesh, Mauritius and Sri Lanka), is responsible for driving, training and growing Canada's team in his region in 42 offices in 4 countries. Unlike universities in Canada, which cover all subjects, colleges in Canada are limited to teaching one subject in the chosen course.

These smaller schools are similar to American liberal arts universities, such as Bishop's University in Quebec, where there are only 2,340 full-time undergraduate students enrolled. If you or someone you know is considering attending college in Canada or the United States of America, there are a few factors to consider, from the cost of tuition to the on-campus experience. Education is a provincial responsibility in Canada, so provincial governments govern all universities and colleges in each province. For many Americans, Canada probably evokes images of moose, frozen tundra, ice hockey, and bearded lumberjacks singing in plaid shirts (thank you, Monty Python).

Under Kumar's leadership, IDP has witnessed tremendous growth in Canada over the past 3 years in terms of student enrollment and quality counseling. This is one of the reasons why students are urged to confidently decide what skill they want to acquire before applying to universities in Canada. In the United States, most universities use a semester system with two terms lasting between 16 and 18 weeks each. While English is the most widely spoken language in both the United States and Canada, other languages may also be spoken, especially in cities.

The provincial government of Canada takes care of the education sector, thus ensuring that the quality of education between colleges or universities is of high standards.
