OCAD U campus

The campus of OCAD U is located in Toronto. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies.

The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. OCAD U has many athletic opportunities. Among them are sports grounds and various clubs. Student life at OCAD U is filled with intercultural activities, as not only local students study here, but also students from abroad. The exchange of knowledge and experience, networking and new acquaintances — all this is an integral part of studenthood.

What to do after graduation

Canada allows university graduates to stay in the country from 1 to 3 years. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work even without a formal offer from an employer. We talk about other options for immigration in our article.
