Although Canada is not as popular of a study abroad option compared to the U.S., there are many pros and cons to choosing to study abroad here and they have many opportunities for international students. Some of the pros include prestigious universities and high quality of education, significantly more affordable cost of tuition and lower cost of living compared to other studies abroad options, such as the U.S., U.K., and Australia. There are also many post-graduate opportunities in Canada, such as job options and graduate school. There is also a diverse population in Canada, leading to more cultural opportunities and many chances to improve one’s English and/or French skills. Like other studies abroad programs, there are also some drawbacks to studying in Canada. Some of these cons include constantly changing education and residence laws, which can confuse international students, hidden living expenses and extreme weather changes, especially really cold winters which can be difficult for students from warmer climates. All this being said, studying abroad in Canada can be an exciting time with lots of interesting experiences for students who are interested in studying abroad.
