Why Studying in the USA is Better than Canada

When it comes to studying abroad, two of the most popular destinations are Canada and the United States. While Canada offers more affordable education and better immigration policies, the U. S. provides more diverse employment opportunities and education options.

To help students make an informed decision, here are five main factors to consider when choosing between the two countries.

Education Costs

Education in Canada is much cheaper than in the United States, thanks to several laws and policies implemented to make education affordable and accessible to all. Private universities in both countries are generally more expensive because they are not regulated by the government. However, state universities in both countries are much more affordable: the exact fees vary from school to school.

Employment Opportunities

In recent years, several countries have become popular study abroad destinations for international students. Despite the lack of adequate job security at a more recent level in the U.

S., graduate employability scores provided by Quacquarelli Symonds, as part of its annual reports, give the United States the advantage in terms of better job opportunities and graduate employability compared to Canada. According to annual reports published by Quacquarelli Symonds, some of the best universities in the United States are Stanford University, Harvard University, Columbia University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Immigration Policies

The eligibility criteria for studying in the United States are more stringent compared to Canada due to greater competition. Some of the main factors that contribute to students choosing Canada over the United States are fast processing times for study permits, ease of immigration, and lower costs.Cost of LivingThe cost of living will be much more expensive for international students studying in Toronto (Canada) or New York City (USA). On the contrary, it would be cheaper for international students studying in Guelph (Canada) or Birmingham (USA).

Work Opportunities

Both Canada and the United States allow international students to work before and after completing their studies.

Once you begin your studies, you will have new immigration needs, such as the opportunity to work abroad before and after completing your studies. In conclusion, an Indian student must compare factors such as eligibility, visa, study permit, job opportunities, universities, and security before deciding between the U. and Canada. While Canada offers better immigration costs and policies, education in the U. offers more diverse employment opportunities and education options.

In fact, Canada may have fewer ranked universities compared to the United States, but the country has a diverse range of specializations and courses for graduates in engineering, sciences and humanities.
