Canada Course for Education Agents
Welcome to the Canada Course for Education Agents
The Canada Course for Education Agents was produced by Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Canada in cooperation with the Canadian Consortium for International Education and Marketing (CCIEM) and ICEF. The Canada Course supports professional development for agents specializing in Canada as a study destination.
By taking the Canada Course, agents will acquire a firm foundation in the benefits and organization of Canada's education systems, and will gain access to resources with which to help international students study in Canada at the most appropriate institutions and in the best programs for their goals.
The Canada Course provides education agents with:
- An understanding of why Canada is one of the top study destinations in the world
- An overview of the study options available in Canada, including examples of flexibility within the higher education system between programs and institutions
- Information about how to apply to study, as well as costs and scholarships
- Tips about how to best prepare for living and studying in Canada
Please note: The Canada Course provides education agents with a general foundation in the education systems and processes in Canada as they apply to international students; for information on the rules and processes of specific education institutions in Canada, agents will have to conduct their own research and make direct contact. The Canada Course includes a helpful list of resources at the end of each section for the agent's personal use.
The course materials are structured into a series of units which you can navigate to on the right-hand side menu.
