Degrees in Canada

In Canada, undergraduate degrees such as Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) are offered by a variety of institutions, including traditional universities, community colleges, polytechnics, institutes of technology, and business schools.

English and French are the main languages of teaching, with a majority of programs offered in English for undergraduate study. However, in French-speaking regions like Quebec, many programs are available in French.

How to Apply for a Degree in Canada

International students typically apply directly to their chosen institution, with some provinces offering a centralised application service for multiple universities.

Applications usually require academic transcripts, a letter of intent, and proof of language proficiency. You can use tests like IELTS, TOEFL, or equivalent French language tests in francophone (French-speaking) institutions. Specific programs may have additional requirements such as a minimum GPA, SAT scores, or specific subjects.

Undergraduate Tuition Fees for International Students

Tuition fees for international students vary widely by institution and program. They generally range from CAD 20,000 to CAD 30,000 per year. EU/EEA students will pay the same tuition rates as other international students.

Numerous scholarships and financial aid options are available to international students from universities, private organisations, and the Canadian government. These are aimed at reducing the financial burden of studying abroad.
