Canadian Institution and Courses
Canada is a bilingual nation, having both English and French as its official languages. In the majority of the universities, the medium of instruction is English. However, there are also many French speaking universities, particularly in Quebec. They offer undergraduate degrees and postgraduate study.
As well as universities, there are also university colleges and community colleges. The community colleges typically offer practical, vocational type courses. The university colleges offer similar programs as well as bachelor degrees.
The universities and university colleges in Canada are registered with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) ensuring a high level of quality across the institutes.
There are also a large number of language schools in Canada teaching both French and English. For more information visit www.languagescanada.ca
