Why Canadian Universities?
High quality, affordable cost!
Canadian universities are funded by Canadian provincial governments. The land, buildings and infrastructure costs are paid for by Canadians through taxation, so tuition fees solely cover education costs. Canadian universities are fully regulated by the governments and by other academic organizations. This allows Canadian universities to have high quality education while costing less.
The CUAC selects member universities that offer a spectacular combination of quality, lower tuition and higher scholarship possibility to give international students a wide range of choice.

Canadian universities offer a huge range of degree programs and a huge range of course choices inside each program.
Each CUAC member university will offer many programs under many of these areas: biosciences, computer sciences, astrophysics, arts and humanities, engineering, drama and many more.
Along with your major area of study you will have "elective" options from other disciplines like those mentioned here. For example, an engineering student might take a literature or geography course.
This part is amazing. What does flexibility mean?
You can often choose your own minor course area to focus on along with your major, such as computer science and communication studies, or psychology and statistics.
You can change your major after your first year without losing any time or money.
You have a huge course selection within your major: a business student can take more finance, less marketing or more taxation within the finance program. A biology student could focus on courses in the pharmaceutical industry, while another student may focus on genetics. Canadian universities allow you to pursue your passions within each program.
The most sophisticated system of study integrated work programs are in Canada. Students can get field exposure and make money all while earning university credits! Programs with various co-op opportunities include engineering, business and computer science. If there isn’t a co-op course within your program of study, there are likely to be volunteer positions that will help you qualify more highly for a paid job.
The CUAC selects universities with fantastic co-op potential and some of the universities offer co-op for all of their programs!
Plus, university professors are skilled in research and book publishing. Some undergraduate students qualify for co-op positions or other positions that involve remarkable opportunity to work closely with professors.
