Study Abroad in Canada

6 Reasons to Study in Canada

Studying abroad has numerous advantages, regardless of where you study. Making new contacts, expanding, or deepening your language skills and gaining insights into a foreign culture are just some of them. While study visits to the USA, England, and France used to be particularly popular, today more exotic study destinations are becoming increasingly popular. Canada is one of the new top destinations for German students. Here are six reasons why:

1. First-class universities in Canada

Canadian universities offer their domestic and international students excellent learning conditions and globally recognized degrees. At Vancouver Island University, for example, students have access to state-of-the-art facilities and are taught and mentored by world-class faculty. The quality of teaching at Canadian universities is recognized worldwide and greatly enhances career opportunities.

2. Value for money

Although tuition fees at Canadian universities are higher than at public German universities, Canada offers a cost-effective alternative for studying abroad in an English-speaking country thanks to a favorable exchange rate. Small study groups and personal support from lecturers ensure an effective education. Vancouver Island University offers a wide range of fields of study and excellent master’s programs that are highly regarded on the job market.

3. Nature and recreational opportunities

Canada is synonymous with breathtaking landscapes and a variety of outdoor activities. From canoe trips on the Pacific to mountain climbing, the country offers countless opportunities for nature lovers. But city dwellers will also get their money's worth, as glittering metropolises are located close to Vancouver Island University and offer a lively urban atmosphere.

4. Multicultural environment

Canada has a diverse and open culture due to the different countries of origin of locals and immigrants. Unlike in many other countries, people in Canada are welcomed rather than discriminated against because of their origin and ancestry. Here, students can immerse themselves in different cultures and learn about new perspectives.

5. Quality of life in Canada

According to the United Nations Human Development Index, Canada is one of the countries with the highest quality of life. The pictures speak for themselves and prove that Canada is a first-class place to live.

6. An unforgettable experience

Vancouver Island University offers its students an unforgettable study experience. The numerous positive testimonials impressively confirm the motto “Love where you learn”.
