Why do students favour Canada to study abroad? – India Today

By India Today Web Desk: The phenomenon of Indian students studying overseas is not new. In fact, during the past few years, there has been a steady increase in the number of Indian students studying abroad. According to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), 2,61,406 Indian students travelled overseas in 2020, and 71,769 did so in 2021.
Although they frequently go to different locations throughout the globe for their studies, students have been increasingly choosing Canada as a study destination in recent years. What are the main characteristics in a situation like this that make Canada one of the top study locations internationally?

The nation provides a variety of advantages to foreign students studying inside its borders. To begin with, there are several highly sought-after specialty programs offered by Canadian colleges and universities in the fields of business, engineering, healthcare, and information technology.
The availability of co-op courses, which enable overseas students to pursue degrees with alternating periods of work and study and provide students with practical and theoretical knowledge, is also one of the keys draws for students studying here.

Multiculturalism and beautiful scenery are offered by Canada, adding to its allure. Moreover, unlike many other places in the world, Canada is renowned for having a friendly culture. With all of these advantages and a good standard of living, Canada is a popular choice for international students.

Canada offers all of its international students the chance to work up to 20 hours per week during their semesters and full-time during the summer and winter breaks thanks to its unique legislation. You wouldn't need a separate work permit to work on campus or as an intern at any business because your study permit is sufficient to support your search for a part-time job.

When compared to institutions in the US and the UK, Canada's tuition is somewhat less expensive. And when you take the return on investment into account, it is a very sensible choice for Indian students. To lower your school costs, you can also submit an application for a variety of Canadian scholarships.

According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) data, 97.5 percent of international graduates who sought permanent residency in Canada were successful. As a result, they were granted legal status to stay and work in the country from January to October 2021. This makes for a favourable proposition for students who wish to consider relocation via the higher education route.
The Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PWPP) in Canada enables students to remain and find employment there for up to three years following graduation. You may work abroad for a while and then seek permanent residency.
It is always best to get in touch with a destination specialist to arm them with the proper knowledge if students ever feel overwhelmed and need support during their study abroad process.
