These are the Best Ontario Colleges for Latin American Students

These are the Best Ontario Colleges for Latin American Students

Posted by Juan Gavasa on April 28, 2018

Canada has become a priority destination in recent years for many students in Latin America. The quality of the universities and colleges, learning in English, the stability and security of the country, the welcoming spirit of its citizens, the quality of life and a first level educational offer are the points that reinforce this privileged position. To the excellent level of its education system and the opportunity of professional experience is added a cost of investment much lower than required in private schools of others countries in the region, such as Mexico.

In the annual university quality rankings no Canadian school appears among the 10 best in the world, but several of its schools have achieved qualifications in the World University Rankings of the Times Higher Education 2018. According to this global report, the first Canadian university is the University of Toronto, in the 22nd position. Other Canadian universities in the top 100 include the University of British Columbia, in the 34th; McGill University, in the 42nd; and McMaster University, in the 78th. The rankings score the centers according to the quality of teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international perspectives. Then, these scales are compared with other performance indicators, as the student evaluations, the leaders of the universities and trust in industry and governments.

Many schools in Canada and Ontario have created specific services to attract students from Latin America. Departments have been created that serve in Spanish the demands for information and the administrative processes to access the different programs. Studying at a college also offers some advantages that are very appreciated by foreign students: one of the most important is the access to permanent residence in Canada in a faster way. These are the Ontario Colleges that offer the studies programs and the most attractive services for Latin American students that are thinking about prolonging their academic experience in Canada.
