» KNOW ABOUT CANADA'S EDUCATION SYSTEM
 

 

It is not without reason that Canada’s education system is considered to be one of the best in the world today. Education tops the list of priorities of the Canadian government and policy makers. Education being a provincial responsibility, each state or province draws up its own policy and directives regarding education. But education standards are uniformly high across the country.

 

Schools

Canadian children attend kindergarten for one of two years at the age of four or five on a voluntary basis. All children begin Grade One at about six years of age. The school year normally runs from September through to the following June but in some instances, January intake dates are possible. Secondary schools go up to Grades 11, 12 or 13 depending on the province. From here, students may attend university, college or Cegep studies. Cegep is a French acronym for College of General and Vocational Education, and is two years of general or three years of technical education between high school and university.

There are two kinds of schools in Canada. Government-funded public schools and private, independent schools. Publicly funded schools are managed at the local level by elected school boards. All private schools must be registered with the Ministry of Education in their province or territory and must meet the curriculum and other standards set by their respective ministries.

 

Higher Education

Canada’s post-secondary system includes not only 92 Universities but 175 community colleges as well. Colleges respond to the training needs of business, industry and the public service. Canadian institutions offer a range of regular study programmes as well as co-operative study programmes that allow students to combine work-based training with classroom study

 

Universities

Canadian universities offer the academic route to higher education. Universities offer various levels of academic degree programs leading to either a Bachelor’s degree (four years in duration), Master’s degree (two year’s in duration) or Doctorate degrees (involves four to seven years of full-time study).

 

University Colleges

University colleges combine the best of Canadian university and college traditions, with a strong base of applied and academic programs offered in campus environments. As the name suggests, a university college offers university degrees as well as college diplomas and certificate programs.

 

Community Colleges

Community and career colleges offer the vocational route to higher education. Community colleges have a primary function of responding to the training needs of business, industry, the public service sectors, and the educational needs of vocationally oriented secondary school graduates and adults. These colleges commonly offer one to three years diploma or certificate programs which prepare you in some way to enter the marketplace by giving you specialized skills training.

 

Career Colleges

A technical/career college is a privately owned and operated school with the main objective of preparing students for the job market after a short period of instruction.
