We loved this image created by the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials (seen to the left) because it explains how provincial education systems differ from one another within Canada. While all provinces have fabulous college and university opportunities available to international students, this image may better explain the duration of studies and the intake ages of students at each level.
This link is another good resource we found that explains the differences and similarities at the provincial level. One important thing to note is that most Bachelor’s Degrees in Canada are now only offered through universities after 4 years of study. Most universities have a prerequisite that students complete a 4 year Bachelor’s Degrees before studying at the Masters level.
