Canada is an amazing country in which to do a post-Bachelor program.

Canadian Graduate Application Centre.

First, professional Master programs are available offering an extensive selection from law to manufacturing management to engineering.

Why is this so valuable? Because Professional Master programs do not require you to find a supervising professor, which is extremely difficult.

However, you must be a very good student, and for some programs, demonstrate related work experience or other qualifications. You will need excellent English proficiency – some programs will permit you to improve your English at the university first before starting the Master program.

Meanwhile, there are some excellent Post-Graduate Diplomas that are worth thinking about . Canada has a system of colleges, funded, like its universities, by government money.

Their quality is excellent and they are known for excellent career preparation.

It is more and more common for Canadians to do a college PGD after completing a degree.

Secondly, all of these programs, Master degrees and PGDs, enable students to qualify for a work permit after graduation of at least one year, or if the student does 4 semesters (considered two years), a three year work permit!

*CUAC does not assist with thesis-based programs.
Students should read on-line about potential advisors, whose publications indicate research focus appropriate to the student’s academic and professional experience. Then they should contact these professors to see if they are accepting new students to know if it is worthwhile to start the application procedure.
