Not to be outdone by its famous neighbour, Canada is one of the world's top study abroad destinations. A Masters in Canada means studying in spectacular settings at some of North America's most successful universities.
The Canadian higher education system is also one of the most prestigious in the western world, with several renowned research universities and a range of specialised institutions. Investment in Canadian universities is also amongst the highest in the developed world, with local provincial governments possessing the freedom to support the individual strengths of their local university systems.
There's more to Canada than its universities though. As a multilingual and multicultural country with modern cities and beautiful natural features, Canada offers an ideal location for postgraduate study abroad. Whilst completing your Masters degree you'll have the opportunity to visit stunning sites such as the Rocky Mountains and Great Lakes.
Your choice of institution will also range between the vibrant French-Canadian province of Quebec (where degree programmes are offered in French and English) or remote cities such as Halifax, in northern Nova Scotia.
