Canada beck­ons you

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

cANA­DIAN in­sti­tu­tions will visit Malaysia this month and in March to pro­mote Cana­dian ed­u­ca­tion to Malaysian stu­dents and show­case a va­ri­ety of pro­grammes, in­clud­ing en­gi­neer­ing, busi­ness, ac­tu­ar­ial sci­ences, biotech­nol­ogy, com­puter sci­ence and pre-univer­sity stud­ies.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from these in­sti­tu­tions will be on hand to coun­sel in­ter­ested stu­dents and par­ents and ad­vise on the ad­mis­sion re­quire­ments for the up­com­ing school in­takes.

The High Com­mis­sion of Canada in Malaysia is re­spon­si­ble for or­gan­is­ing the ed­u­ca­tion fairs in Malaysia.

The fairs will be held at Traders Ho­tel in Ge­orge Town on Feb 25 from 5pm to 10pm and Canada Place at Wisma Se­lan­gor Dredg­ing in Jalan Am­pang, Kuala Lumpur, from 11am to 6pm on March 1 and 2. Ad­mis­sion is free.

Canada of­fers con­sis­tently high­qual­ity, af­ford­able ed­u­ca­tion and in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised cre­den­tials in more than 10,000 study pro­grammes.

Last year, QS Univer­sity rank­ings and We­bo­met­rics placed five and six Cana­dian uni­ver­si­ties in the World’s Top 100, re­spec­tively. Its mul­ti­cul­tural pop­u­la­tion and vast nat­u­ral beauty of­fer a wel­com­ing and healthy en­vi­ron­ment for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents.

In 2012, more than 265,000 in­ter- na­tional stu­dents from over 160 coun­tries chose to study in Canada.

Com­par­a­tively low an­nual tu­ition fees and cost of liv­ing make Canada an at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tion for in­ter­na­tional stud­ies. Tu­ition fees for pre-univer­sity pro­grammes in Canada start from C$5,500 (RM17,000) a year and univer­sity pro­grammes be­gin from as low as C$8,000 (RM25,000) a year, while the cost of liv­ing starts from C$7,500 (RM23,000) a year.
