Secondary and post-secondary education in Canada comes in many forms in order to meet the needs of an extremely diverse student population from home and abroad. Diversity is one of Canada's greatest strengths! Therefore, Canada's educational institutions have it all.
International students studying in Canada can take a high school diploma, trades training or a university degree, can choose from a summer session to a 4-year or 2-year program, and can study on campus or online, full-time or part-time. Canadian educational institutions may be small, big, private, public, all-girls, all-boys, general, discipline- specific, vocational, Christian, Catholic, secular, English, French (or both), and may be located in rural, urban, northern, southern or coastal settings. International students can study everything from middle school and high school programs to English or French as a second language, and university program options from Aboriginal studies to zoology.
