The Study in Canada program is open to international students to begin their studies by August 2020 funded by ‘Global Affairs Canada’.
The purpose of the program is to raise opportunities for Canadian post-secondary institutions to attract international students from a diverse range of countries/territories and regions.
International students have an opportunity to receive a fully-funded academic award leading to a diploma, post-secondary or post-graduate certificate, or Master’s degree at a college, technical or vocational institute, or university in Canada.
Why study in Canada? Choosing Canada to study abroad is a great decision for higher studies. Canadian Government and universities offer multiple financial aid opportunity nationally and globally to support education in Canada.
