Canada Education System

Education in Canada is under the complete jurisdiction of the provinces and territories (States) and as such, there is no Federal (Central) education system in Canada. In keeping with the national commitment to education, public education in Canada is free up to and including secondary school (12th Std), in all the provinces. At the post-secondary level, institutions are divided into community colleges and universities. A significant number of university graduates attend college upon completion of their degree in order to acquire vocational skills for employment.

Types of Certification

  • Certificate: awarded upon successful completion of a programme which is usually of one year
  • Diploma: awarded on the basis of one or two years of successful study
  • Advanced Diploma: 3 year program which may lead to Bachelor’s Degree
  • Bachelor’s Degree: awarded by Universities/ University Colleges/ Community Colleges after four years of full-time study
  • Post Graduate Diplomas / Certificates: It leads to a Master’s Degree. These programs have work terms which provide full-time opportunities to gain practical experience along with theoretical studies.
  • Master’s Degree: awarded after successful completion of course which is usually of 2 years
  • Doctorate or PhD: generally requires four to seven years to complete
  • Co-operative Work Term

    Co-op is a work term provided as part and parcel of the course curriculum. It provides an excellent opportunity to students to gain first hand practical experience related to the field of specialization. Students can gain on-the-job experience while continuing to study. Co-op provides full time opportunities that last for 12 to 17 weeks.

    Co-Operative work programmes, combine courses in many subjects with relevant work, giving students an invaluable head start with their careers. This assists International students in connecting with the Canadian job market and developing a network with the Canadian companies.


    The degrees & diplomas from Canadian Institutions are among the most widely recognized in the world. The education system in Canada consists of both public funded & private institutions. While pursuing their studies, the students, are allowed to work for the first 6 months on-campus and thereafter off-campus.

    Post-secondary education is offered by four types of educational institutions:

  • Technical / Career Colleges: Privately owned and operated with the main objective of preparing students for the job market after a short period of instruction.
  • Community Colleges & Technical Institutes: More career oriented, practical/ technical related curriculum, with small classes, off-campus course offerings.
  • University Colleges: University Colleges offer students a choice of either academic oriented university degree programmes or more practical-oriented college diplomas and certificates.
  • Universities: Canadian Universities are largely public funded and offer consistently high quality education at lower tuition rates for international students. They offer a broad range of courses and degrees from undergraduate to Doctorate and also certificate and professional degrees.
  • Grade Point Average (GPA)

    The average grade achieved by a student during the course of an educational program, is calculated on various scales depending on the Institution. (e.g.: Generally the student may be evaluated on a 4-point scale or a 9 point scale).


    "I am really grateful to Shirish sir for helping me realize my dream of master's in the US from a good university. Owing to his dedication and the personal attention bestowed on all of my applications, I have got an admit from Columbia University. Also the content writers and counselors have all been extremely helpful, accommodating and great guides on this journey."


    "It was a great experience for me. Mnemonic and its teachers provided me with all the facilities that a student needs. It was really fun studying in Mnemonic. I would certainly recommend everyone to join Mnemonic for their study abroad needs."

    "The most appreciable thing was that I got to write all the essays myself & so it was my own thought process which was refined by Mnemonic's fine quality writers. I have heard that some consultants write the whole essay where the individual contribution or ownership of the process becomes very limited. I think the team is very polished, mature, experienced and very helpful at all times. I had a good experience all through."


    "All the hard work and effort that the Mnemonic team had put in finally met appreciation and justice. Everyone in Mnemonic is very professional. The features of Applix are very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything regarding my admissions since the day I contacted Mnemonic. Thanks for a wonderful experience."

    "I thank Mr. Shirish and the whole team of Mnemonic Education for their guidance and support. Your team has been very professionally dedicated during the entire process. I have got the admission at the most prestigious, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL. My dream of a lifetime has come true. It has made everyone proud of my achievement. To add cherry on top, I have been awarded scholarship worth $11250. I am now in the elite Business class!"


    "As the second youngest Chess Grand Master, my time is mostly spent in travelling for tournaments. In such a scenario, completing my application and getting an admission into Stanford University looked like a distant dream. The team at Mnemonic Education was dedicated enough to constantly keep in touch with me and help me in enhancing the creativity of my essays and submitting my applications on time. I look forward to my journey ahead at Stanford and would like to thank Mnemonic Education's entire team for making the process easier and smoother for me."
