New visa regulations help students stay and work in Canada!

Canada opens its arms to international students!

Canada has implemented changes to work permits which allow post-graduate students to stay in the country much longer!

Under the old rules, a foreign post-graduate student had only 90 days after graduation to find a job which was in their field of the degree which they studied. Now International students can obtain a work permit to remain in Canada for three years without any restrictions on the kind of employment they choose!
Find Canada's Top School's and Program's Here
This gives foreign students the right amount of time to establish themselves in Canada and begin their career which will allow them to apply for residency and have a greater chance of success with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. In fact, all future international graduates with at least one year of Canadian work experience in managerial, professional, or technical positions during their 3 year work permit will be able to apply to stay permanently in Canada through the Immigration class called Canadian Experience Classification.

University Admissions professionals and businesses across Canada celebrated the new laws which came into effect June 2008 and apply immediately. The influx of new foriegn students this will attract means that Canada will continue to attract the best minds in the world and Canada's educational institutions and workplaces will all benefit. It will also be much less stressful for international students as it gives you much more time to find the right career for you.

Sounds like a great place to study? Start here!
Did you know that last year 63,673 international students came to Canada to study at some of the countries top educational institutions? That's a 4.6% increase over last year!

    Hey,

    The colleges offering this course in Canada are listed below:

    Selkirk College

    Niagara College

    Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology

    Imperial College

    University of Guelph

    The admission to these courses is given on fulfilling the following requirements:

    A candidate is required to have a four-year undergraduate degree or equivalent degree from a recognized college.

    In high ranked colleges the admissions committee may ask for a Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).

    It is mandatory for international students whose native language is not English are required to submit the IELTS/TOEFL exam scores to the college they wish to join.

    Always check the selected university for admission requirements as they are different for different universities. Please keep in mind the deadlines so that you don't tend to miss them.

    All the best!!

    Most of the colleges in Canada and other foreign countries offer MS which is equivalent to our M.Tech Course.
