It takes gut for you to decide to migrate to a new country. It is probably going to be one of the most important decision in your lives. When it comes to migration, most people would choose US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc as these countries are well known for having better job opportunities and better living conditions for residents in general. (Whether it’s true will be a different story :)) Today I am going to share some information about migration to Canada in this post. So if you are looking to call Canada your new home, read it on.
There are 3 ways to migrate to Canada, through employment, through study, or through investment. I am going to talk about the migration through study here. First, it is essential to learn about the difference in schools, Colleges and Universities in Canada.
What is the Canada Universities, College ,Undergraduate, Graduate , Post Graduate and Post Doc?
College: vocational school or college, the training period is from 6 months to 3 years. Graduated is a technician or technologist. A college degree is called a diploma for long-term programs of 2, 3 years and short-term program called certificate.
University: University program. By standard, the bachelor program is 4 years. Sometimes, there are short-term 3-year programs. There are normally 2 levels in the university. One is undergraduate program. After you graduate, you are officially having a bachelor degree. Another one is post-graduate program. You can only study it if you have a Bachelor Degree. After graduating from the post-graduate program, you will officially have a Master Degree. Then, you can proceed to further into the study and get a Doctoral Degree, or otherwise known as PhD.
Graduate: Post-Bachelor programs
– Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Note, this is the title of the degree and it does not mean you are a “doctor of philosophy”. The philosophy here is not related to philosophy :))
– Postdoc: Post-doctoral research, independent research on a certain scientific topic – not a degree. This path is only for those who are seriously interested in the topic and looking to get a “Nobel Prize” out of it perhaps.
Most people stops at “Bachelor degree” or “Master Degree” as you would have already be qualified for Canadian Permanent Residency from there.
Is studying in Canada limited to school age?
No! On the application form, we do not need to write the year of birth. Even if you do, this column will be converted into an XX when people review their records. Adults go to school at any age as long as you want. You will then be the “Adult students”. No discrimination here 🙂
What do you need if you want to learn in Canada?
What is the admission requirements?
When does it start? (Fall or Spring or Summer)
What are the admission requirements? Is IELTS important? Do you have higher chance of getting enrolled with the higher IELTS score? Is IELTS 6.5 or 7 enough for college admission?
Depending on the industry and the faculty. You have to read their admission requirements, it will show clearly the details of admission conditions.
Having a 6.5 IELTS and 110 TOEFL scores are normally the minimum conditions to be admitted. If you have already met all minimum criteria except for IELTS or TOEFL, then you can focus on learning English for your major.
Why do I face a lot of difficulties in adapting to the English speaking environment even with IELTS 6.5 or 7.5? That is because English scores is only a score on paper. Adjusting to a new environment is a whole new difference challenge.

If you want to study in Canada, you need to invest in time to do extensive research about the environment, your study pathway. Only those who are really serious with your plan will be successful.
