Although university ranking can be a good starting point, it is undoubtedly not the definite way to choose an educational institution to study abroad. There can be many factors that directly affect your decision, so you should consider them during the selection process.

Tuition and Accommodation Cost

The most significant factor is the cost. Not all universities offer a study program at the same tuition cost. It may vary greatly depending on course components and the institution itself. In addition to this, the living cost usually varies depending on the location of the institution.

Weather conditions

Canada is a big country, and its climate does not remain the same in all its regions. Most Canadians live in the south as it is warmer compared to the northern part that can get extremely cold. Winters are usually cold and snowy in the Toronto region. On the other hand, Canada's west coast, where Vancouver is, receives a lot of rain in winter, although its summers usually have sunshine. Both Toronto and Vancouver are top study destinations, along with Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec.

Job opportunities

Job availability is also a crucial factor that you should consider while choosing an institution. Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario are provinces where a significant amount of jobs are available. However, it would help if you chose an institution where there are more job opportunities related to your field.

Take guidance

In addition to the universities mentioned above, there are many more good institutions where you can complete your study. Indeed, choosing the right institution is not an easy task. Therefore, it is good to take advice from an experienced study visa consultant like Pyramid eServices.
