Why Study in Canada?

Study in Canada from Bangladesh. Canada is one of the world’s most popular destinations for international students, offering a diverse variety of experiences and opportunities in a country known for its vast expanses, multicultural cities, and natural beauty.

A Canadian degree is widely recognized as equal to one from the United States, Australia, or the United Kingdom. Canadian universities consistently do well in international rankings. The cost of living in Canada is also seriously affordable compared to most other top destinations for international students. Bangladeshi students in Canada are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week during academic sessions and full-time during scheduled breaks like summer vacation. Most students don’t need a work permit to work while they study, whether their job is on campus or off campus. Your study permit will indicate whether you’re allowed to work off campus.

Tuition Fees

In general, tuition fees in Canada are less expensive compared to other major destinations like the US, UK, and Australia. Average tuition fees in Canada for international undergraduate students start at about CAD 27,159 (about USD 20,600) per year. Universities in Canada set their own fees, and the cost of the study also depends on the type of course and the subject.
