OGS, Plan of Study Канада

Compared to many countries, studying in Canada is very affordable. You will likely need between C$20,000 and C$30,000 annually to cover tuition and living expenses. However, this cost range is an average only and will vary according to the institution and program in which you are enrolled, your location and your living expenses.

Tuition

Tuition fees for international students vary across provinces and programs. The table below shows the weighted average tuition fees (in Canadian dollars) for full-time foreign students, by field of study.

2020–2020 International Tuition Fees by Field of Study *

*weighted average tuition fees by field of study (in Canadian dollars)

Do remember that the costs associated with attending university go beyond tuition fees. You must also budget for items such as books, living expenses and housing.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada mandates that you prove you have enough money to meet your financial needs while studying in Canada before you start. So it’s important to begin sorting out your finances – and looking into the possibility of obtaining a scholarship to help fund your education – early on.

Housing

Most universities offer on-campus residences for students, some of them specifically for scholars from abroad. But acceptance at a Canadian school does not automatically mean you can get a room in residence. Students must apply separately for on-campus housing, and its cost varies across institutions and will depend on whether or not you want a private room or a meal plan, for example.

Some international students choose to live off-campus in an apartment. Rent for a typical two-bedroom apartment in Canada averages $1,025 per month*, but varies depending on the city or neighbourhood and the type of accommodation. As a renter, you may also need to pay additional monthly costs for utilities such as electricity, home phone, Internet and cable television, as well as personal expenses and renters’ insurance. Some students share apartments or entire houses in order to reduce their housing costs, or they rent rooms in private houses, sometimes also paying for use of the kitchen.

Most universities can provide assistance with finding housing, both on and off campus, and answer questions through their housing office or student services.

Transportation

Depending on where you live, you may be able to walk or bike to campus. Many students, particularly those in larger cities, choose public transportation: buses, subways, commuter trains or ferries. One-way public transit fares typically cost a few dollars, and monthly passes range from about $80 to $150, although many transit providers offer student discounts.

Health insurance

All international students in Canada must have health insurance, and the medical coverage that’s available varies from province to province. Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan cover international students under their provincial health care plans, but coverage generally depends on the length of your stay.

However, international students planning to study in Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island or Quebec must arrange for private health insurance.

You can find out more details about health coverage through the university websites and those of the provin­cial ministries of health.

Study in Canada – Step-by-Step Gu >

The Canadian government has developed a strategy not only to attract foreign students, but to allow them to stay and build careers in Canada. Canada offers the world’s best study programs and is home to some of the world’s leading research facilities and academic institutions. Originally the government goal was to attract 450,000 international students by 2022, but Canada beat that target at the end of 2020, when there were 494,525 study permit holders across all levels of study.

Canada Student Visa Process Step by Step

Step 1: Understand the Requirements

Students wishing to study in Canada should start planning for Canadian study permit at least a year in advance and must understand the Canada student visa rules. You must read and understand admission requirements for various Canadian institutions and the rules for obtaining a study permit. Common requirements for all universities and institutions include an updated passport, proficiency in either English or French along with proof of passing prescribed language tests with minimum grades/bands, and proof that you can finance your study as well as the cost of living in the country.

Step 2: Choose your Course and Institution

Only admission to a Designated Learning Institute (DLIs) qualify an international student for Canadian study visa. Therefore be sure that the institution your are applying to is listed on the government’s DLIs. As well, it is advisable to have chosen a specific major course when applying for study visa, although you may switch courses later.

Step 3: Take the Language Proficiency Test

Every international student is required to prove proficiency in English or French. To prove language proficiency, each applicant must take an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam, a Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) exam, Test d’Evaluation Français (TEF) exam, or Test de connaissance du français pour le Canada (TCF Canada). Some institutions also accept the Cambridge English: Advanced or TOEFL exam score.

Step 4: Apply to Universities

It is possible to take this step during Step 3 or even earlier. But this is the point when you contact your chosen institution (from the Designated Learning Institute list), obtain their application packs, and submit them well in advance. See also Find Universities in Canada. As application fees range between $100 to $250 per institution you may want to apply to only the top 5 on your list.

To avoid delay which may in turn impact your visa processing, make sure you provide complete and accurate information with all necessary documents. If satisfied with your application the institution will send you a letter of admission which you will need to process your study permit application.

Step 5: Apply for a Study Permit

Once you have an admission letter on hand from one of the DLIs you can now apply for your Canada Study Permit or student visa. You can apply online or visit your local visa application centre. Your application must be accompanied by the following:

  • admission letter
  • your passport, and
  • documentary proof that you have adequate finances to study in Canada

  • “Certificat d’acceptation du Québec” (CAQ) if you are going to a Quebec institution.

Step 6: Travelling to and entering Canada

If accepted, you will be issued a visa with a specified date from which the permit comes into force. This is the date you are allowed to enter Canada. Be sure to plan your travel only for entering Canada on that day.

Upon arriving in Canada at an port of entry, an immigration officer will verify your permit and other documents before allowing you to enter Canada. Once stamped you are on your way to pursue your studies in Canada.

Many of Canada’s provincial immigration programs are also specifically targeted at international students. See Provincial Nominee Programs Finder.

OGS, Plan of Study Канада

If you decide to study in Canada, you will realize soon that it is a great future investment and a smart decision. Canada is the world’s second-largest country, rich and successful, and it is also ranked as one of the best places to live in the world because of it’s high quality of education and life. Moreover, that’s a chnce to live in multilingual encironment — Canada has two official languages, English and French. By the way, Canadians are considered to be one of the most educated nations in the woeld.

In Canada, regions are responsible for their own education systems. So there are ten provinces and ten (not totally, but slightly) different higher education systems that reflect territorial history, organization, etc.

Canada is not a participant of the Bologna process, that’s why country`s national higher education system is divided into undergraduate degree and postgraduate degree. Bachelor degrees (BA) are referred to as undergraduate degrees and Masters degrees (MA/MS) are commonly referred to as postgraduate degrees.

Undergraduate degrees in Canada can take either three or four years to complete, depending on the university. . Students with good academic results may be able to get scholarships when joining the program. The universities in Canada are flexible and this enables students to change bachelor degree programs easily. Students may also be able to combine two programs and this enables them to get two degrees at the same time.

Postgraduate degrees take between one and three years to complete, depending on the type of degree. To start your postgraduate degree studies in Canada you will need a language certificate and an undergraduate degree diploma (BA). The layout of the program will largely depend on its aim — to prepare students for a future career or for further research. PhD (doctoral) programs in Canada are availabe for students with just an undegraduate degree — no need to get your master’s if you plan to become a researcher in this country.

Canadian universities offer study programs in various fields. Currently, there are more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate degree programs offered in Canada, as well as professional degree programs and certificates. However, higher education in Canada is especially famous for its degrees in humanities, business, management and education.

Master of Community Planning

Do you want to design and shape the world around you? Consider the Master of Community Planning degree at Vancouver Island University. Community planners play a huge role in the development of neighbourhoods, towns, cities and regions. An urban planner can also help shape a community’s response to a range of emerging issues such as climate change; and economic issues such as tourism by creating a sustainable city also known as ecocity.

The MCP program at VIU combines research, applied learning through a variety of in-community, real-world projects, and interactions with the professional planning community to give you a wide range of skills and knowledge. This community planning program is fully accredited through the Canadian Institute of Planners, alongside Canada’s historic planning schools.

The Master of Community Planning Program

The Master of Community Planning (MCP) is an applied program that is fully accredited by the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP). Graduates are eligible to apply for student membership with CIP while at VIU and can apply for full membership post-graduation.»

The program focuses on:

  • Small city and town planning;
  • Community and urban design, including a strong GIS component;
  • Rural/urban interface planning;
  • First Nations planning (with attention to the issues relevant to the First Nations of Vancouver Island and coastal British Columbia);
  • Sustainable economic issues, including tourism; and
  • Emerging issues such as climate change and planning for post-fossil fuel communities.

This is an intensive program with many opportunities to apply the skills and techniques learned in the program to «real life» planning questions and problems. Students will be engaged in self-directed learning and group studies, seminars and discussions, and will have many opportunities to meet and learn from professional planners. There is also a strong focus on urban design and visual representations of community planning, including GIS.

The MCP is a 2 year program (September to April in Year 1 and September to April in Year 2). Students may be involved in field work and research in the summer semesters between Year 1 and Year 2. The program is a cohort model intended to be completed over two years. However, students may take additional semesters to complete their program if their thesis or major project has not been completed by April of Year 2.

By program completion, our graduates will have a broad interdisciplinary knowledge of how planners can influence the futures of neighbourhoods, small communities, and rural areas both locally and world-wide. Our graduates will have new skills that will enable them to serve citizens and communities as they respond the social, economic, environmental, and sustainability issues that shape our world.

Sample Study Plan for Canada Study Permit

Factors that have influence my career decisions, plans and why I want a study permit

I am writing to your High Commission (Visa Section) to apply for a study permit for a period of twenty-four (24) months to enable me to pursue a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) course in University Canada West.

As a teenager, I was fortunate enough to stay with a guardian who was a fish –monger and operated small-scale financial services. I used to go to the customers homes and stalls to collect their daily deposits; as well as, give out money to those who had finished their monthly deposits. At that formative age, I learnt a lot about operating straightforward traditional financial services. This arose my desire to learn about and eventually operate financial services. Through my experience, I have come to appreciate, one needs more than capital to be competitive in business environments and business administration.

To date, I have taken several proactive steps to achieve my goal. To begin with, I entered teacher-training college to acquire the skills of imparting and the psychology of dealing with all kinds of people. My motivations to purse this track was my economics teacher in secondary school told me, “teachers are most patient, good listeners, and solution oriented people due to our training.” I entirely agree. Teaching is a very interesting field; I have the privilege to impart knowledge, see students succeed (in both business and school environments), and have been exposed to various behavioral attitudes of individuals. Teaching has been a great source of happiness to me.

However, I am now prepared to take the necessary steps to achieve my goal. I would like to combine my teaching experience with my undergraduate degree in Management and Sociology. This program focused on business administration and the study of societal worldview. As well, I have participated in classes at the Ghana Stock Exchange, under the following modules: Introduction to investment, Fundamentals of Finance and Financial Markets, Investments Analysis and Portfolio Management, Corporate Finance, Securities trading and Investment Advisory Techniques and Legal and Regulatory Framework and Supervision. In bid to try to be understood investments, portfolio management and legal regulations of financial industries in Ghana. I had courses in International Strategic Management, Leadership, and International Strategic Human Resources Management at Chibs and Associates Consulting Nigeria Limited and Business Education Exams Council Ghana (BEEC) respectively.

To further exemplify my work experience pertinent to studying for an MBA, I have experience working in the banking industry as Direct Sales Agent, where I interacted directly with customers. This role allowed me to use my knowledge to give banking advice, assists clients with their needs and to learn first hand banking activities in Ghana. Additionally, I held the position of International Trade Officer at the Nhyira Art Arcade. While there, I diligently finalized contracts with foreign partners and buyers that monetarily benefited both parties.

The Canadian government and many post-secondary institutions offer international students possibilities for obtaining scholarship awards, grants, or bursaries to finance their education.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, it is important to understand the application process and abide by the deadline specified by the granting institution or organization.

The eligibility requirements and application package often differs from one scholarship to the next. For example, some scholarships may require a personal essay and/or request references from past teachers or employers. Other scholarships may be primarily offered based on academic performance, extracurricular achievements, or other creative skills.
