Study in Canada Experience
Canadian higher education is known for being quite relaxed, and students at the university level are given quite a level of flexibility about attendance, course requirements, and assignments. However, students still have to abide by the classroom rules set by their individual instructors, and understand what the expectations are for each course.
Generally, degree courses are discussion-based, seminar-style classes, where it’s a smaller group of students debating or questioning various topics. You’ll also find the normal lecture-style classes, especially for topics that have a lot of students (Computer Science, Medicine, Business, etc.). The way courses are organized really depends upon the content or the subject being taught.

Lots of quality universities are found in Canada’s smaller cities and towns where the cost of living is lower. Sometimes, Canada’s larger cities are more affordable than other cities located in different countries.
You can also compare different schools and cities. You’ll see that the costs can vary from city to city and province to province, both for your tuition fees and living expenses. So, if you’re on a budget, we recommend searching a wide range of options to find the right university and community for you.
To give you an idea of the costs, we researched through our partners to get the cost range for a number of bachelor’s degree options across Canada. We found that tuition can range from CAD 1,800 per year to approximately CAD 20,000 per year for an undergraduate degree.
Similarly, the cost of accommodation, food and local transportation varies from city to city. However, we found that living expenses for one year averaged around CAD 12,000.
