Canada, which has been preferred by students who want to study abroad and contribute to themselves professionally in recent years, stands out with its "college diploma programs" in all provinces.
College programs, where you can get education at both undergraduate and graduate level, and which give you the opportunity to improve yourself in almost every field, are offered for 1-2 or 3 years, depending on preference.
College education programs are especially preferred by students who want to improve themselves professionally and who plan to go to internship programs during or after their education.
Advantages of College Programs
College programs are much more affordable compared to university degrees. Especially when it comes to private colleges, they provide their students with the cheapest price possible with installment plans.
Co-op Placements (Internship)
Co-op program is generally optional for most of the programs both in private and public colleges. It aims to provide work experience to students after they complete all the lessons successfully. Good news is that most schools support their students while they are finding a place to work for.
More in Number
Even though there are limited number of universities even in big cities like Toronto, the number of colleges is absolutely stunning. They are basically everywhere.
Shorter Length of Time
The longest college diploma program takes 3 years, but there are also options for 1 or 2 year programs. Duration changes depending on the content of the program.
Post Graduation Work Permit
This is valid for only public schools. After you finish your program completely, Canadian Government gives you the right stay in the country to work for 3 more years.
Part-time Work Permit
Either you are in a private college or in a public one, you will have 20-hour work permit while studying, which is great for international students to make extra income.
