Advantages of studying in Canada

Canada is the union of many different cultures and heritages. Fortunately, the best of each has been taken and, with the dedication of a government highly involved in the well-being of its citizens, it has greatly improved.

There is a Canada for every type of person, thanks to its multicultural, relaxed, and very balanced lifestyle. In Canada, you will enjoy both your free time and the time you dedicate to work or studies. Sounds crazy? Let’s see 11 of the many advantages of studying in Canada.


Top-notch education

As we mentioned earlier, Canada has a globally recognized educational system, consisting of a variety of prestigious universities and backed by a comprehensive network of schools with a technical and practical focus. These types of programs stand out as one of the best ways to prepare future professionals.

Ready to stand out in your job and earn a good salary? Well, you’ll be delighted to know that Canadian schools and universities are famous for being part of the education and CVs of many world leaders, and also for providing access to the best salaries in the global business landscape.


Offers the possibility of studying English and French

Canada had the French colony of Acadia for many years, and that is why much of the country still retains French as its second official language. In fact, in the provinces of Quebec, New Brunswick, and Manitoba, it is considered the first official language.

This makes Canada the ideal place for those who already know French and for all those who want to learn this language in order to access more job opportunities in the future.

In Canada, you can study professional training courses, as well as language courses: English, French, or both languages at the same time.


Post-study work

If you’re looking for a country to establish your home with a view to the future, Canada could be it. The Canadian government offers numerous advantages for all well-educated people who want to contribute their knowledge and skills to keep the country at the forefront of innovation and maintain its recognized economic and social prosperity.

To this end, it has created several programs that facilitate the application for permanent residency for international students who have completed their education in the country.


Your CV will be more attractive

Studying in Canada will be a story that your friends and future employers will want to hear. The Canadian education system is designed to promote a series of qualities and ways of thinking that will make you stand out in any job interview.

In addition, most educational programs in the country have a focus that blends theory with practice. This leads to a more complete education and much more confident young professionals.


The best quality of life

One of the things that stands out the most about Canada is how well everything works. It is a very safe country, politically stable, prosperous, and economically and socially stable. The unemployment rate is very low and salaries are high. Because of this, Canada always ranks high in the rankings of countries with the best quality of life in the world.

In addition, Canadians are very friendly, welcoming, and peaceful people who are also very accustomed to interacting with people from other countries.


Breath-taking landscapes

Canada has something to say to all nature lovers who want to live more in contact with it: come and stay!

Canada is known for its mountainous landscapes reflected in icy and crystalline lakes and its beautiful forests full of deciduous trees that change color with the seasons.

If you are one of those who are looking forward to the first snowfalls to go skiing or snowboarding, in Canada you can enjoy fresh snow almost 365 days a year, in one of its numerous ski resorts. Some of them are world-renowned in the winter sports industry.

Canada is a land of colonies and settlements, so they are very accustomed to welcoming people from all over the world with open arms.

When you come to study in Canada, you will realize that living here is like living in several countries at once.

Canada’s population is known to be one of the most diverse in the world. In the same city, communities from all over the globe live together every day, for generations and in complete harmony: Europeans, South Americans, Asians, and more.

They all contribute, understand each other, and collaborate in their own way to Canada’s economy and culture. And they will also contribute a lot to your life!


City atmosphere

Multiculturalism is a key point to understanding the appeal of Canada’s cities. There is always something interesting going on here! In Canada’s major cities, you can enjoy hundreds of activities and plans of all kinds every day. Thanks to the mix of cultures, the food is spectacular, and the fact that the country is committed to innovation and new technologies, living in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver is like living with one foot in the future.

The scene in these cities is vibrant, very genuine, and with a beautiful obsession with always wanting to integrate a bit of nature into the cities, so you won’t have to go very far to enjoy a picnic in a park or a hockey game on a frozen lake. Canada’s got you covered!


Tranquility and security

Studying in Canada is for those who value tranquility and security. Even its most populated cities, Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, are on the lists of the safest cities in the world. The pace of life here is relaxed, and everything works like clockwork, including transportation, which is efficient and punctual. Surely, when you arrive in Canada, you will love the relaxed lifestyle that Canadians preach.


You will live an unforgettable experience

Living away from home changes your life. And if you also choose a place that can contribute to your personal and professional growth, even better. If you come to study in Canada, you can feel the magic of firsts almost daily.

Simple things like looking for an apartment, attending a new school, taking the subway, or doing the shopping will be an adventure… And that’s not forgetting the great adventures you will experience traveling around the country.

    If you have ever dreamed of being something, it is very likely that Canada, with one of the most varied educational offers in the world, has a perfect course for you.

    Here you can receive training for everything you can imagine, from language courses, through vocational training courses, to university degrees and doctorates.

    The only important thing to decide what course you will take in Canada will be your desires and the time you have.

    Whether you barely speak English or French, or if you’re looking to learn one of these languages more professionally to expand your job opportunities, there is a perfect language course for you in Canada.

    The courses have varying durations and objectives, but they all focus on making you feel more confident in writing, speaking, listening, and expressing yourself in English or French


    Language Courses (English and French)

    In general, in Canada, you can take five types of language courses:

    • General language courses: where you will learn the basics of the language.
    • Preparatory courses for official exams: to prepare you to obtain an official certificate in English or French.
    • Academic language courses: where you will learn how to express your ideas perfectly, debate, and give presentations.
    • Business language courses: for those who want to perfect the language to open up to the international market and access more job opportunities within the business world.
    • Intensive courses: like general courses, but condensed into a few weeks.

    Professional Training

    In Canada, you can choose from a wide variety of courses where you will learn everything you need to become a great professional and be able to immediately join the workforce.

    These are Professional Training courses such as Diploma with or without Co-Op.

    Of this type, the most interesting courses are those with Co-Op, which basically means they include a practical part. In this way, Co-Op courses are divided into a theoretical block and a practical block. During the latter block, real practices are carried out in companies that are usually paid.

    Co-Op courses have a very good reputation, both among local and foreign companies and students, as one of their main advantages is that during the theoretical block, you can work 20 hours a week, and during holidays and internship periods, you can work 40 hours in a company related to what you are studying. Good for your wallet and your resume!

    Also, if you want to continue living in Canada after completing your studies, if you take one of these courses at a public college, you can apply for a Post Study Work Permit.

    Still, the option of taking a course without Co-Op (without internships) is also valuable. These courses are a bit cheaper and, most importantly, also allow you to work part-time during the course and full-time during vacation periods.

    So if your budget is a bit tighter or you want to experience Canada in a more relaxed way without the pressures of having to focus solely on your studies, a course without Co-Op is your ideal option.

The quality of its universities is appreciated worldwide, and there are also many scholarships designed to help the best students continue their studies and support innovative projects in the most advanced fields such as research and technology.

    In addition, once you complete your higher education studies, the government will make it very easy for you to obtain permanent residence in the country.

    Which is the best city to live in Canada?

    These are the main cities where you can study in Canada:



    How about living in the biggest city in all of Canada? With its almost 3 million inhabitants, of which half were not born in Canada, in Toronto it will be very difficult to get bored.

    Here you will always have something to do or see. Cultural events of all kinds, live music, great restaurants and a city full of green areas in which to disconnect.

    In addition, Toronto is very safe and is super well connected, so you can go from the bustle of the center and its skyscrapers to the tranquility of its residential neighborhoods in no time.

    Of course, get ready to live a long and snowy winter, perfect to fully enjoy the snow and the warmth of the heating.

    Vancouver is the ideal city for those who love outdoor activities. Here people are very active and enjoy their free time doing kayaking, trekking, ice hockey, or going to the beach (with cold water).

    Although a bit smaller than Toronto, in Vancouver, you will never be alone. The city has 60,000 inhabitants and one of the liveliest cultural scenes in the country. Perhaps because it is located in a strategic enclave of the Canadian Pacific coast, Vancouver was for years the main port of the country, through which goods and people from all over the world passed every day. Many appreciated everything this city had to offer and stayed, like the 30% of the population of Asian origin that you can find in its famous and colorful Chinatown.

    The mentality of the inhabitants of Vancouver is very open, and they are very warm with foreigners. So don’t be surprised if you make a great group of friends with whom to discover Vancouver as soon as you arrive.

    The university city par excellence and one that breathes more history. With almost 400 years behind it, Montreal has a bohemian charm that architecture, art, and endless walks enthusiasts will appreciate, as its streets, museums, and parks are the perfect setting for it.

    Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec and is famous for being one of the cities where French is the first official language and for being the birthplace of ice hockey, the national sport.

    Many english students dismiss Montreal because they think they will not be able to improve their English if they live with people who speak French to them, but the truth is that there are more people in Montreal who speak English than French. In fact, the Quebec Government, to prevent French from disappearing, offers a payment to those who study French. This program is known as “Francization.” Yes, as you hear it, in addition to giving you free French classes, they pay you to learn the language. And not only that, but also, if your goal is to obtain Canadian residency, if you study in the state of Quebec, you can get extra points.

    What are the types of accommodation in Canada?

    Now that you know a little about the best cities to study in Canada, let’s tell you about the types of accommodation in each of them.



    These hostels or backpackers’ lodges will be the perfect place to stay during the first few days in the city. In them, you will have the opportunity to meet many people from other countries, from backpackers who have traveled to the country to enjoy its nature, to people like you, who are looking to study and work in Canada.

    One of the conveniences of these places is that most of them have cleaning service, so you can focus on finding a new home and not have to waste time on those things.


    Shared House

    Sharing an apartment in any city in the world can be one of the best decisions of your life, just ask Monica and Rachel from the iconic series “Friends”. If you are lucky enough to connect with your roommates, not only will you save expenses, but you could end up sharing a flat with your best friends. And, can you think of a better plan? We certainly can’t!


    Student Residence

    As we mentioned before, Canada has a high-level education system, so many foreign students decide to pursue an educational program in this country. That is why if you decide to stay in one of the student residences in Toronto, Vancouver, or Montreal, you will also have the opportunity to meet many people from all over the world.

    If you are looking for a place with atmosphere where you can forget about cleaning and even cooking, living in a residence will be right up your alley. Additionally, you can choose between sharing a room or having your own room, depending on the privacy you want to have.


    Canadian Family

    As we mentioned at the beginning, Canadians are very welcoming people, so much so that many of them host foreign students in their homes for several seasons.

    Living with a Canadian family has many advantages, such as linguistic immersion and experiencing authentic Canadian life.


    Other types of accommodation in Canada

    But if you are looking for more privacy and prefer to live alone, there are also other options such as living in a condo or basement.

    The first ones are buildings with several housing units that share various services such as libraries or gyms in common. Their price will vary depending on their age and the services they offer. Basements are usually studios or small apartments that are quite economical and ideal if you are looking to live with your partner. The only drawback is that, being a basement, they do not have many windows.

    How much does it cost to study in Canada?

    Are you already starting to imagine your life in the land of maple leaf? You may have a clearer idea of which city to live in or where to stay, but before packing your bags and moving to the other side of the world, you surely want to know how much it costs to study in Canada.

    The truth is that the price of your adventure will depend a lot on several factors, so let’s go over each one of them.


    Expenses before traveling to Canada

    Course fees

    One of the first expenses you will have to take into account will be the payment of the course you are going to take in Canada. The price will depend on the type of course you decide to enroll in. So, depending on whether you choose a language course, a vocational training course, or a university course, the cost of studying in Canada will vary.

    Visa fees

    There are many types of visas that will allow you to live in Canada. Depending on your situation and the visa you apply for, the cost of the procedure will have one price or another, but if you want to study, we can tell you that the price of student visa fees is $150 CAD.

    Medical insurance

    And if you want to apply for a visa, you will need to have medical insurance that covers you throughout your stay in the country. These insurance policies usually cost around $40 CAD per month, but if you travel with Dingoos, you will have the service of hiring insurance included, with exclusive discounts in the best insurance companies.

    Airline tickets

    The price of fuels has significantly increased the cost of flights, which is why we recommend that you buy your flight as soon as possible so that you can buy a ticket at its cheapest price. On average, flights to Canada usually cost around $500 CAD per person.

    First weeks of accommodation

    As we mentioned before, during your first days in Canada you will need temporary accommodation. Depending on where you stay and the characteristics of your room, your stay will be more or less economical. For example, it will not be the same if you decide to sleep in a single room with your own bathroom than in a shared one. But generally, spending the night in a Canadian backpacker hostel usually costs around $20 CAD.

    Once again, if you travel with Dingoos, you will have the support service included in the search for accommodation for your first days in Canada, completely free.

    Sufficient money to support yourself

    This will depend a lot on your lifestyle and pace of life, as you will not spend the same amount if you go out every day as if you make more relaxed plans at home. Even so, on average, our students usually spend about $1,100 CAD per month.


    Expenses once you are in Canada


    Sharing an apartment, living in a residence or in a basement… Do you already know where you will stay?

    The city, the neighborhood, and the type of accommodation will determine something decisive in the cost of your stay. For example, in Toronto, prices range from $300 CAD (if you stay with a Canadian family) to $1000 CAD or more (what a room in a shared flat in the center can cost you).


    Canada has a good transportation system, but it is not the same to move around Montreal as it is to move around Vancouver. For example, public transportation in Toronto costs $3.25 CAD per trip, while in Vancouver it is $3.00 CAD and in Montreal a single ticket will cost you $3.5 CAD. Thus, depending on the city you are in, the price of transportation will vary but also what each ticket includes.

    Remember that if you travel to Canada with Dingoos, upon arrival, your Dingoos Integrator will receive you, who will help you (among many other things) get your transport card, which will allow you to save on your city transfers.


    On average, filling the cart with food for the whole month in Canada will cost you around $300-$400 CAD, not counting all those nights you decide to order delivery.


    When it comes to making plans, Canada offers you thousands of options, but be careful, not all of them are free, some like going to the cinema or visiting a museum are paid.

    Calculate that whatever plan you make, it is possible that on each weekend of leisure, you will invest around $100 CAD.

    Phone and others

    Once you arrive in Canada, the Dingoos team will help you choose the best and cheapest company, but if you want to have a phone, calculate that the price of your bill will be around $45-$60 CAD.

    Scholarships to study in Canada

    After all these calculations, your wallet may be trembling. Is Canada out of your budget? Don’t worry! There are scholarships to study in the North American country. We’re going to tell you what they are and what you need to get them.

    Currently, there are scholarships offered by the Spanish and Canadian Governments. The most popular ones focus on the area of science and research, such as those offered by the National Council of Science and Technology and those offered by the Government of Quebec for Spanish researchers or postgraduate students.

    But in addition, there are also scholarships that promote outstanding students from other nationalities, allowing them to carry out exchanges with Canadian educational centers to enhance their CV. Examples of these scholarships are the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Scholarship and the Globalink Research Internship Award.

    If you are looking for scholarships to study English in Canada, the best thing to do is to contact us to advise you on your best options for coming to study in Canada, as this type of scholarship is less common and the offer is more limited.


    Requirements to obtain a scholarship to study in Canada

    To apply for a scholarship, you need to meet the following requirements:

    • Apply one year in advance.
    • Have acceptance from a Canadian educational institution.
    • Have a score of between 550 to 580 points on a TOEFL English exam.
    • Submit a resume, grades, and letters of recommendation in English or French depending on the institution (remember that in Quebec, the official language is French).
