Degrees obtained from Canadian institutions are recognized worldwide and considered equivalent to those obtained from the U.S. or Commonwealth countries.
Collaborative programmes offering hands-on learning combined with a more theoretical approach
International educators consider Canada for research and collaboration partnerships.
More than 90% of students who graduate from Canadian institutions get employed in their field of studies within 6 months after graduation
Various specialization programs under diploma, degree, post graduate diploma are offered at around 200 institutions nationwide and, tuition is generally much lower than in other leading study abroad countries.
Students can pursue their studies at one of Canada's top universities for roughly half of what it would cost to attend an equally reputable program at a private US university.

- purchase of a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) of $10,000,
- completion of an upfront medical examination,
- a qualifying score of at least 6 for English (IELTS), or Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens score of 7 for French (TEF), or graduation from a Canadian-curriculum high school.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom or the UK, is a sovereign state located off the northwestern coast of mainland Europe. It is comprised of four neighbouring island countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The UK has a longstanding reputation for academic excellence. It provides students an opportunity to get world-class education, access cutting-edge research, and learn from the brightest minds.Students get the knowledge and skills that employers want—all while enjoying a high quality of life!
Benefit from Short and Flexible Courses
Academic programs (referred to as ‘courses’ in the UK) are generally shorter in the UK than many other countries. Students in the UK can usuallyearn a Bachelor’s degree after three years of fulltime study, and complete a Master’s degree course in one year.
In contrast, it can take a total of six to seven years to earn the same degrees in Canada and the USA. The shorter study duration helps to reduce overall tuition fees and accommodation costs, thus making the UK an attractive study
Furthermore, students can pick and choose from over 50,000 academic courses in more than 25 subject areas in the UK. British universities offer flexibility, allowing students to choose from different subject ‘modules’ and tailor their studies to suit their interests and career aspirations.
UK Education System
Education system is divided into primary education (up to Year 6), secondary education (Year 7-11), pre-university or further education (Year 12-13), and higher education consisting of undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
Bachelor’s degrees are typically awarded after three (3) years of full time study in the UK, except in Scotland. It will take four (4) years if the student is studying in Scotland, or if the student adds a year of work experience in between their study terms, referred to as a sandwich year.
Professional degrees, such as medicine, veterinary and architecture degrees, require five (5) years of study.
Students can earn a Master’s degree in one year, while a Doctorate is typically completed in three to five (3-5) years.
Students can also pursue an Integrated Master’s degree, a four-year program that combines undergraduate and graduate studies. Students are admitted after A-levels (further education), and do not receive a Bachelor’s degree in the process.
English Language Proficiency
The following tests are commonly accepted for entry into degree-level courses:
- International English-Language Testing System (IELTS) - Academic and UKVI
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) - Internet-Based Test (IBT)
- Trinity College’s Integrated Skills in English (ISE)
- Pearson Test of English (PTE)
- Cambridge Advanced Certificate in English (CAE)
- Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE)
- English Language GCSE, A-Level or IB
- IELTS - between 5.5 and 6.5 (usually 6.0), with no band less than 5.5 or 6.0
- TOEFL (internet-based test, iBT) - between 60.0 and 90.0 overall
- PTE Academic score between 50 to 64 overall
- CAE or CPE score between 169 to 176 overall, with no less than 169 in each category
Language requirements are often stricter for postgraduate and professional programs (e.g. IELTS score of 7.0). Foundation and pre-session-al English courses, on the other hand, usually require lower language test scores than undergraduate courses.
An academic year typically begins in September in the UK, and includes three terms: Autumn/Fall (September to December), Spring (January to April) and Summer (May to August). Since the calendar year begins in Autumn, most institutions offer admission for entry in September, but selected programs also accept students for Spring and Summer intakes. Additionally, some institutions also offer courses at multiple times during the year, and therefore have varying deadlines for each start dates.
UK Graduate Immigration Route
Stream is now open for the United Kingdom’s new Graduate Immigration Route! Students must hold a Tier-4 Visa at the time of application
The Graduate route provides an opportunity for international students who have been awarded their degree to stay in the UK and work, or look for work, at any skill level for 2 years, or 3 years for doctoral students.
International students can take advantage of the UK Graduate Immigration Route if they successfully complete Bachelor’s / Master’s or Doctoral degrees at an educational institution in England, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland:
A job offer is not required for the student to participate in the Graduate Immigration Route, and there is no minimum salary requirement.
The Graduate route is non-extendable and does not count towards settlement. However, if you find suitable employment, you will be able to switch into various work routes from the Graduate route.
From the Graduate route, you may be able to switch to the Skilled Worker route if you meet the relevant requirements, which allows you to stay in the UK to do an eligible job with an approved employer. It is for a maximum of five years, and contributes to settlement rights – meaning you may be able to apply to live permanently in the UK. The Graduate route does not count towards settlement rights.
Australia is a land of contrasts. It’s the smallest continent and one of the largest countries on earth
It’s situated in the Southern Hemisphere, south east of the Asian continent. Due to Australia’s size and location, its geography is extremely diverse, ranging from the snow-capped mountains of the Australian Alps and Tasmania, to large deserts and tropical and temperate forests.
Australia is divided into six states and two territories. The capital of Australia is Canberra. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth are other popular Australian cities.
Australia offers students a unique opportunity to obtain a world-class education, and work during and post-study, in a laid-back, high quality, multicultural environment that is highly urbanized, yet surrounded by beautiful beaches and stunning landscapes.
The Australian education system comprises of primary, secondary, and tertiary education.
In Australia, “school education” refers to primary and secondary education, while tertiary education, also known as
postsecondary education, includes vocational education and training (VET), and higher education (generally universities).
Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a type of tertiary education intended for students who want to move straight to the workforce and work in careers that do not require a university degree.
VETs provide a more hands-on alternative to university education, offering courses and training for semiskilled, skilled, trade, and paraprofessional careers. VET qualifications include certificates (from levels I to IV), diplomas, and advanced diplomas, which may be completed on their own or in combination with on-the-job training with an employer. Graduate certificates, graduate diplomas,Bachelors can also be earned at some VETs.
Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students [CRICOS]
When choosing where to study and what to study, students and their education advisors must ensure that their chosen course is registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS).
The Australian government protects the interests of all international students and ensures they get quality education by requiring institutions to become registered on CRICOS.
The CRICOS website lists all the courses and institutions that are available to students who wish to obtain a student visa. In other words, enrolment in a CRICOS course is an eligibility requirement for study visa.
Students may take short courses, which are not listed on CRICOS, with another type of visa, such as the visitor visa, but they will not be covered under the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act.
Language Test Requirements:
Language test score requirements vary by institution and by program. Some institutions only look at the overall scores, while others have cut-offs for scores in each of the four skills sections.
Typically, students applying to an undergraduate course need:
• IELTS scores between 6.0 and 6.5, with no band less than 5.5 or 6.0, or
• TOEFL (internet-based test, iBT) scores between 60.0 and 90.0 overall, or
• PTE Academic score between 50 to 64 overall, or
• CAE score between 169 to 176 overall, with no less than 169 in each category
