Expulsion statistics of Canadian universities
There is no definitive statistics on this matter, however, according to some sources, about 20% of students of Canadian universities are expelled or leave the university in their first year of studies. The reason for this may be high tuition prices, which only grow every year, or disappointment in the chosen program. Also, many students do not accustom to a strict teaching style of Canadian universities.
Canadian rigor is especially apparent during the examination period: a student who does not pass an exam is given a single attempt to retake it. Moreover, all re-examinations take place in August, which also complicates the learning process for students.
Prospects after bachelor’s in Canada
- Ability to stay for master’s studies. Master’s programs in Canada generally last one year. Master’s programs that last for two years usually involve design work or an internship during the last year. Admission is carried out mainly on the basis of a GPA, which must be at least 3.0/4.0. For admission to some educational programs, you need GMAT or GRE test results.
- Employment opportunities. After graduation, the student can stay in the country to look for work. To do this, he must receive a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) that is valid for up to 3 years. This document can be issued to a person who studied for more than 8 months on a full-time program in one of the accredited educational institutions of Canada. Graduates of Canadian universities are highly valued in the labor market all over the world: employment among a bachelor's degree owners over 25 years old is 74%. This is largely due to the fact that students of educational institutions of Canada receive good practical knowledge while studying.
- The opportunity to immigrate to Canada. PGWP work experience can be an additional advantage in selecting candidates for Immigration programs using Express Entry. Within it, a skilled worker and his family have every chance of becoming permanent residents of Canada.
