There are literally hundreds of schools, colleges and universities that a student can pick from when applying to a program. Finalizing the program or a university/college can be a daunting task for any student. It’s far more challenging for a foreign national who has never set foot in this country. It is important to do some research when making this decision. Thanks to digital information with the right approach, one can research and make an informed decision.
Once the applicant finalizes a certain program, he/she must then shortlist a few different universities/colleges offering the same program. Keeping these choices open is like having Backup Plans. While it’s important to apply to the program that one desires, there is no guarantee of selection into that program, which is why one must apply to various programs and different colleges.
Colleges can be Private Colleges and Public Funded Colleges. The student should ensure that the college that he/she is applying to is a Designated Learning Institute (DLI). For an institute to be included in the list of DLIs is like getting a stamp of verification from The Canadian Government which helps a student in a foreign land, make the right decision. Moreover, for obtaining a Study Permit, an acceptance letter from a DLI is one of the minimum requirements. The list of DLIs is constantly updated and can be found on this link.
