Apr 30, 2018 – With 21 of the world’s top 500 universities and 32 in the top 1000, Canada welcomes more than 400,000 international students each year. It offers the world’s best study programs and is home to some of the world’s leading research facilities and academic institutions. If studying abroad is your plan, Canada should be at the top of your list.
Are you looking to study abroad in the near future? If yes, then studying in Canada can be the perfect opportunity for you. As a developed country with an undisputed reputation for education and immigration opportunities, Canada has a lot to offer to the young as well as to senior individuals.
A very important factor for most international students while choosing a study abroad program, is the safety and security of the country and the city in particular. Parents are worried about the safety of their children and factors like crime against women, racial discrimination, theft and burglary play an important role while choosing a destination for study abroad. In this respect, Canada is one of the safest places to study with very low crime rates and cases of racial discrimination. Statistics by Numbeo reveal that Canada’s safety index (62.42) is much higher than the safety indices of other popular study abroad destinations such as US (49.99), UK (57.9) and Australia (57.94).
Canada has a multicultural environment with people of all religions, races and cultures. People of Canada are extremely friendly and welcoming. The multicultural environment gives students an opportunity to interact with people of all backgrounds and ethnicity. There are numerous communities and associations of which you can be a part and get a feeling of a home away from home. The multicultural environment also helps you find restaurants serving ethnic and traditional Bangladeshi, Indian, Chinese, Japanese etc foods. You can contact your international student advisor to find out about the ethnic club or association you can join to soak in the homely feeling of the country to which you belong. No wonder that Canada has the 7th largest student population in the world, with 2,65,000 international students studying at various levels of education!
Canada is an international leader in computer and information technologies and has a reputation for excellence in such sectors as telecommunications, animation, transportation and engineering; and specifically, aerospace, urban transport, microelectronics, medical devices, advanced software, hydroelectric and nuclear power, lasers and opto-electronics, biotechnology etc. Canada was among the first in the world to recognize the need to connect schools and libraries to the Internet, and its SchoolNet program is being copied around the world. All kinds of modern amenities are provided and most campuses happen to be wired with the most sophisticated technologies the world has to offer.
Canada is one of the few nations that offer job opportunities to students who have graduated from Canadian Universities and have obtained a Canadian degree. In fact, after finishing their studies, international students can work in Canada for up to 3 years!
Yes, as an international student you will still pay more than Canadians for the same course, but that same course in another country, such as the United States, Australia or United Kingdom, would likely cost even more. Also, see point 1 above – not only are you paying less in Canada, you’re also earning.
Canada offers not only quality education, but education which is affordable for international including Indian students. Compared to countries like the UK, USA and Australia, cost of education in Canada is quite moderate.

Students have to submit all their academic papers, Visa Fee (CAD $100) and IELTS/PTE/TOEFL etc. result in the preliminary investigation. Professional counselors and lawyers will conduct this process from EDUCUBE at free of cost.
It is the most fundamental factor to study overseas. Getting a successful visa mostly depends on writing a standard SOP. Basically, SOP stands for writing an overview to a Students’ future subjects, occupations, and interests. SOP enables University and Embassy to understand the whole scenario of students. Which includes, future courses reason behind choosing a particular country or study destination, future occupation and how future occupation is linked with past occupation and courses etc. We, EDUCUBE assist students to write a nice SOP.
After a successful assessment and writing a standard SOP we, EDUCUBE will apply to the university for an offer letter on behalf of a student. It takes approx a one week to get the offer letter. Students will get to know all about their courses including enrollment fees, enrollment date, tuition fees, courses destination, campus location, overseas health cover (medical fees), refundable and non-refundable expenses for study in Australia in the offer letter.
In this step, the university will investigate students’ financial documents. For instance, if a student or sponsor has CAD $39,500 (Thirty Nine Thousand & Five Hundred) in a bank for study purpose in Canada then the university will ask them about the income source of CAD $39,500 (Thirty Nine Thousand & Five Hundred). Student or sponsor must provide legitimate documents for each transaction in the bank. Besides the relationship with a sponsor, student’s passport, sponsor’s NID documents will be evaluated. Finally, the university will conduct an interview session with the student and student must pass in the interview. EDUCUBE provides full assistance in GTE assessments and helps students to pass in the interview.
COE (Confirmation of Enrollment)
After a successful GTE assessment, University will allow students to pay initial tuition fees mentioned in the offer letter. After payment, students will be issued COE from University. In other words, COE is call Pre-Visa. EDUCUBE will also help to conduct process.
After having COE, EDUCUBE – on behalf of the student will submit all academics financial documents to the embassy and prepare students for bio-metrics and medical checkup. It takes 30-45 working days to get a visa.
