So now you know the top ones, what to do next? Here’s our suggestion to find the best institution FOR YOU.
- Decide whether you want to study in University or College: This decision depends on preference, your financial status, the possibility of you fulfilling all the conditions to apply and etc.
In general, it is said that universities are more academic and colleges focus more on practicality. Many companies (big ones) only recruit students from universities and the salary for university graduates is, on average, higher than college ones. However, if you are an international student, do you think employers would choose to pay $50k/ year for you or a native Canadian? This’s what you should consider carefully. If you have great work experience already, it may be better to study in a university.
The path most young people choose is to study in a college, work for couples of years and study in a university for a higher/ more specialized degree and get a higher salary in further future.
- Decide which field you want to study: this’s based on your background, passion, current trend, competitiveness and etc.
- Research which colleges or universities offers that program: if you want to study in a very specialized field, you may see that not many universities/ colleges have that program.
- Compare the program offered by those universities/ colleges: Read the program outline to see what is taught, which certificates you can have after graduation, co-op opportunities and etc. You can ask other current or former students on LinkedIn to understand their experience with the program in that universities/ colleges.
After the 4 steps above, we think you have enough data to make up your mind. Good luck!
