There are many benefits to studying in Canada as an international student. You have the option to bring your family with you, work during your studies, and the credentials you gain can open doors to becoming a Canadian permanent resident!
Canada is recognized internationally for its quality education system and access to some of the best schools in the world. According to QS University World Rankings, there are currently three schools in Canada that rank in the top 50 worldwide. Also, Canada has ranked the best country for education in 2017, citing factors of university excellence and a highly developed education system for the top spot.
As a full-time international student in Canada, you have the option to work part-time during your studies. This can include both on and off-campus work for up to 20 hours a week, helping you finance your education. During scheduled breaks throughout the year, such as winter or summer break, your study permit allows you to work full-time up to 30 hours a week.
WORK AFTER GRADUATION
Once you have completed your studies, international students are eligible to apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP). This open work permit allows recent graduates to stay in Canada and seek employment anywhere in the country. Unlike other work permits, you are not tied to a specific employer and are allowed to pursue employment in almost any field. For those looking to become Canadian permanent residents, a PGWP and your prior Canadian studies can be a great way to staying here permanently!
BRING YOUR FAMILY WITH YOU
Choosing to study in a foreign country might not always be a feasible option to those with family commitments. Fortunately, international students are eligible to bring their family with them during their studies.
While you study, your spouse or common-law partner is eligible for an open work permit. This allows them to make use of their time and seek employment anywhere in the country. Also, your children can study in Canadian primary or secondary schools without the need for a study permit.
If you choose to stay in Canada through a Post-Graduation Work Permit, your family is eligible for continued status as well.
