Why study in Canada?

Why CA?

In this article, we want to highlight what makes Canada an ideal study destination that is uniquely Canada. As education specialists, we want to be honest and affirm that each country’s education system has its pros and cons, so weigh our advice for yourself and see what works best for you.

This article is useful for those who might be encountering Canada as a study destination for the first time, or who just need that extra assurance that Canada is a good choice for them. So here are 5 reasons why we think that Canada is not only a good choice for tertiary education, but a really good one:

1. Canada is world #1 in quality of life

In the latest 2021 survey conducted by U.S. News and World Report, Canada ranks #1 in the world for having the best quality of life, ahead of notable countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Switzerland.

Some of the attributes that make up its world #1 ranking includes a good job market, affordable, economically stable, family-friendly, income equality, politically stable, safe, well-developed education system and well-developed public health system. Sounds perfect for a country to settle down upon graduation? In case you didn’t know, Canada was also ranked world #1 in 2021 overall rankings.

2. You get to study with Canada’s best and brightest

It’s no secret that Canada is globally recognised for its outstanding quality of education. At the university level, 2 out of every 5 academics hold at least 1 international degree. Canada also boasts 10 of the top 250 universities worldwide!1

3. Canadians are one of the most hospitable people

Canadians are known to be warm and friendly, and our recent conversations with Malaysian students in Canada has also proven this to be true. Some Malaysian students admitted that homesickness was almost non-existent because they were able to bond closely and quickly with Canadians whom they described as “so accepting and supportive”. Canada is truly a country that embraces diversity, and thus the perfect place for international students.

4. The cost of studying in Canada is affordable

Tuition fees in Canada are known to be one of the lowest among English-speaking countries1, despite its distance from Malaysia. Chances are you will be able to find a programme in Canada that better fits your budget when compared to other English-speaking countries that are nearer to Malaysia. Scholarships are also available to cut down on your expenses – speak to a MABECS Global consultant to find out what scholarships may be available for you.

5. One of the safest countries in the world

In 2021, the Global Peace Index2 ranks Canada as the 10th peaceful country in the world. It has regularly ranked as one of the world’s safest countries with low crime rates. Speaking often to Malaysian students abroad, we know that one of their utmost concerns when applying to study abroad is their personal safety in light of recent global events that seem to put Asians and people-of-colour in danger.
