One of the most popular reasons people choose to go and set up home in Canada is the quality of education. To study at a Canadian university, your English level must be of a particular standard. EC’s Canadian University Pathway Programme is dedicated to students wishing to secure a place at a higher education establishment which also gives the opportunity, once graduated, to apply for permanent residency.
Canadian universities offer world-renowned programs that are highly respected by employers. Additionally, the cost of tuition and living expenses in Canada is often much lower than in other countries, making it an affordable option. Studying at a Canadian university or college is one of the first steps to staying in Canada if you wish to do so.
Another reason that young people choose to study in Canada is the lifestyle. The country is known for its diverse and welcoming culture, and its cities offer a great mix of nightlife, shopping, and outdoor activities. There are also many opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities, such as sports and clubs. And, of course, the Canadian landscape is simply beautiful, offering students the chance to enjoy the great outdoors during their free time.
Pathways teaches academic English and will hand-hold you through the university application process, helping you decide which establishment is suitable for you and even organising a ‘familiarisation’ visit to the shortlisted ones.
The Canadian Pathways Programme has a minimum attendance of 8 weeks and once you have taken a test, the EC team will determine which level and for what duration you should attend classes to achieve the required level to apply for your course. This is available at EC Vancouver and EC Toronto. Our EC Montreal centre offers a ‘hand-holding’ service with establishments that accept the EC Certificate.
Being an international student at a Canadian university is an incredible experience, full of unique benefits and opportunities. The University Pathways Programmes allow students to develop their English skills to the level necessary for university studies in Canada. This means that anyone from any part of the world can come here and receive a top-notch education, something many would otherwise not have access to.
2023 Canadian Pathway programmes start dates for in-person classes are: January 3 and 30, February 27, March 27, April 24, May 23, June 19, July 17, August 14, September 11, November 6, December 4. Note that the last day for enrolments is 10 days before the start date.
So, if you’re looking for a high-quality education at an affordable price, in a country with a great lifestyle, Canada is most probably the perfect choice for you, go for it! You won’t regret it.
